The Nikiski volleyball team won nonconference matches Friday and Saturday in Bethel.

Friday, the Bulldogs (7-4 overall) won 25-8, 25-15 and 25-16. Rachel Thompson had 12 aces and 25 assists, while Laura Hufford had six aces and 10 digs, Brianna Vollertson had six kills and Ayla Pitt had 10 kills.

“The girls came out and played really well after traveling all day and having to play the same day,” Nikiski coach Stacey Segura said.

Saturday, Nikiski notched a 25-19, 25-18, 24-26 and 25-18 win.

Thompson had four aces and 30 assists, while Pitt had 15 kills and five blocks, Brittany Perry had seven kills and Hufford had three digs.

“Saturday, we wanted to work on a few goals but we were really sluggish and we weren’t able to get any of the goals we wanted to meet,” Segura said.

Looking on the bright side, Segura said it was nice to get the sluggish match out of the way and learn from it.

Tuesday, Nikiski hosts Soldotna at 5:30 p.m.

“Saturday’s play will not work against teams like Soldotna, Grace and Homer,” Segura said. “They’re aware of that.”
