PALMER — Kenai tested Colony early, but the Knights scored the sweep.
Following a 25-23 Knights win in the first set, Colony rolled to a 3-0 (25-23, 25-14, 25-16) victory over the Kards Thursday evening at Colony High School in Northern Lights Conference action.
Eve Stephens used 15 kills, four digs and four blocks to help the Knights improve to 6-1 in Northern Lights Conference play, while the Kards remained winless. Isabel List added seven kills, 19 assists and 11 digs. Haylee Duguid chipped in six digs and four aces.
Kenai co-coach Pako Whannell changed it up a bit, going with Mayzie Potton as setter and moving Maddie Galloway to opposite hitter.
“The girls did really well with the changes,” Whannell said.
The coach said Galloway got several kills, and Potton was able to set up Sam Kompkoff for some quick kills. Whannell added that Jaiden Streiff did a good job digging up Colony’s imposing hitters.
“There were some long, aggressive rallies,” Whannell said. “The Colony coaches told the girls what a great job they did.”
The coach is happy the team continues to progress, and looks forward to more progression today and Saturday at the Grizzly Invitational at Grace Christian in Anchorage.
