Wolves get fast start

CARNEY — The Carney-Nadeau Wolves came out like gangbusters Thursday night in a 3-0 (25-8, 25-13, 25-20) volleyball victory over the North Dickinson Nordics.

“In the first two sets, we played about as mistake-free volleyball as you could play,” said Carney coach Steve Kedsch.

“We’re starting to grow and play better together. Our communication is getting better and we’re starting to have fun on the court. In the third set, we made a few mistakes. North Dickinson took advantage of those and made it a close set.”

Taylor Kedsch led the Wolves at the net with 14 kills. Sandra Boulton collected nine kills and Liana Blahnik added seven kills and two blocks.

Talisha McCullough had 19 assists and Layla Blahnik-Thoune distributed 15. Alanis Harris had 21 digs.

Carney, which also won the jayvee match (25-17, 25-14), visits Bark River-Harris Tuesday.

The summary:

Carney-Nadeau — Kedsch (two aces, 14 kills, four digs); Blahnik-Thoune (two aces, two kills, 15 assists, 12 digs); Harris (two aces, two kills, 21 digs); Boulton (nine kills, seven digs); L. Blahnik (seven kills, two blocks, five digs); Hansen (three kills, two blocks); McCullough (19 assists, 10 digs).
