Carson volleyball sweeps past South Tahoe
The Carson High volleyball team looks like it’s in playoff form after a 25-15, 25-7, 25-16 win over South Tahoe on Tuesday at Morse Burley Gym.
Carson (8-5 in the Sierra League) will open the Northern 4A playoffs next week against McQueen, a team the Senators lost to in five games early in the season.
Senator coach Shana Wilkins said the obvious goal is “to get past McQueen which will be a tough match.
“We’ve just been working hard trying to fix what we need to fix. We’re doing really well. We’re just trying to fine tune it. Hopefully we’ll be able to come with the right attitude and right skills to be successful.”
Carson rolled through the Vikings, taking control for good after trailing 13-12 in the third game. Breanna had two kills to give Carson a 12-11 lead before the Vikings came back to go up 13-12.
But Carson went on an 8-1 run to take a 20-14 lead. Anderson had an ace and Nicole Carlevato had a kill during the run. Carlevato had another kill to give Carson a 24-15 lead.
Carlevato had eight kills, three digs and two blocks, Morgan Nuckolls had four kills and one dig, Mavil Diaz had five digs and four aces, Nikki Keller had seven kills, two aces, two blocks and two digs, Kailey Taylor had five blocks, seven digs and two kills and Shannon Earwood added 31 assists.
