CHS volleyball wins; Douglas beats Reno
The Carson High volleyball team made things interesting in its final regular season match, but managed to pull out a 25-23, 25-17, 16-25, 22-25, 17-15 win a Wooster on Thursday.

The Senators actually had to come back in the fifth game, with Nikki Keller putting down a kill on match point.
“Nikki played well in the middle,” Carson coach Shana Wilkins said. “I was happy we were able to pull it out.
“We kind of took a nap for a while. They (Wooster) played really well. We passed well. But our defense just struggled. For some reason we weren’t able to move on defense.”
