The Homer Mariners defended home court advantage Thursday night in Alice Witte Gymnasium with a 3-1 Southcentral Conference volleyball victory.
In a rematch of their clash at the Homer Jamboree last month, which Kenai won, Homer regained the upper hand with scores of 25-12, 18-25, 25-19 and 25-20. The Mariners improved to 2-1 in conference play and 12-8 overall.
First-year Homer coach Sara Pennington said she liked what she saw from her squad.
“We are improving quickly,” Pennington said. “I’m super proud to take this one home. I think we’re only going to get better from here.”
Briana Hetrick set up the Homer attack with a game-high 30 assists, along with eight digs, five aces and three kills. Teammate Kelli Bishop added seven kills, 11 digs and two aces, Karmyn Gallios notched 10 kills and three digs, and Marina Carroll had 11 kills 13 digs and one ace.
