CARNEY - The Mid Peninsula Wolverines broke into the win column Monday night, earning a 25-23, 25-23, 25-21 volleyball triumph over the Carney-Nadeau Wolves.
"It was an exciting match," said Mid Pen coach Traci Lyle. "The rotation we put in tonight worked well for the girls. We did a real nice job serving and set up the ball well. The girls weren't nervous at all. They just went out and played."
The Wolverines ran a double block, placing Kelsey Shope and Krysta VanDamme in the front row. "That was a nice combination," said Lyle.
Carney, which had only seven available players, was led by Cassidy Parrett. She collected six kills, three service aces, two digs and two assists.
The Wolves also used 4-foot-11 junior Ali Theoret as a middle hitter and she had three kills. Andrea Dani had six service aces and 12 assists.
"Ali had never played in the front row before," said Carney coach Steve Kedsch. "That was a big adjustment for us. Cassidy did a good job hitting and serving, which was a nice surprise for us. We did a lot of good things."
Carney, missing four players due to other commitments, visits Forest Park Thursday.
Mid Pen won the jayvee match (25-14, 25-14). The Wolverines host Munising Thursday.
