Carney-Nadeau volleyball

CARNEY — A pair of long service runs gave the Carney-Nadeau Wolves more than enough momentum Thursday night in a 3-0 (25-4, 25-4, 25-16) volleyball triumph over the Mid Peninsula Wolverines.

Talisha McCullough hit 14 straight points in the opener and Alanis Harris began the second set with 16 in a row.

“We were serving real well, which gave Mid Pen a lot of trouble,” said Carney coach Steve Kedsch. “They were sending a lot of freeballs. We have some younger kids who have really stepped up this year and they’re doing a real good job.

“We saw them (Mid Pen) early in the year and they’re very aggressive. They touch a lot of ball and put them in play.”

Harris finished with five aces and 17 digs. Liana Blahnik recorded 14 kills. McCullough tallied 11 assists and Layla Blahnik-Thoune had nine assists and 10 digs.

“Liana had nine kills with no hitting errors,” said Kedsch. “This was probaby one of her best nights.”

Kennedy Englund led the Wolverines with three kills and three blocks. Camryn Croasdell also had three kills and Elli Paulsen recorded 10 digs.

“The first two sets were really rough,” said Mid Pen coach Emily Kayser. “Their long service runs were hard to overcome. They’re a great team. We were agressive at the net, but things weren’t going our way. We just have to put this behind us.”

Carney’s jayvees remained undefeated by trimming Mid Pen 25-9, 25-9.

The Wolves host Munising Tuesday. Mid Pen hosts Bark RIver-Harris Monday.

The summary:

Carney-Nadeau — Harris (five aces, 17 digs); Kedsch (four aces, five kills, six digs); McCullough (three aces, 11 assists); Blahnik (nine kills, four digs); Boulton (four kills); Blahnik-Thoune (three kills, nine assists, 10 digs).
