Staff Reports

The Carson High volleyball team continues to make steady improvement. The ultimate test on if Carson has improved enough will come on Tuesday.

Carson swept past North Valleys 25-8, 25-18, 25-14 on Wednesday at home to improve to 6-2 in league. The Senators needed four games to beat North Valleys in their first meeting.

“We played pretty well,” Carson coach Shana Wilkins said. We’re doing well. We were able to play a little tougher.”

But the real test will come on Tuesday when the Senators will host league-leading South Tahoe. “Hopefully we’re improving enough so when we see South Tahoe on Tuesday it will matter,” Wilkins said.
