The Nikiski volleyball clinched the top seed in the Southcentral Conference volleyball tournament with a 25-16, 25-12 and 25-7 victory over host Anchorage Christian Schools on Thursday.

The Bulldogs are now 11-0 in the league and 12-1 overall. Nikiski closes the regular season by staying on the road to face Houston at 6:30 p.m. today.

“Our goal was to be able to control the tempo of the game,” Nikiski coach Stacey Segura said. “We feel like we have a pretty solid defense and we can speed up and slow down when we want to. We were able to follow that game plan today.”

Emma Wik had a big night serving for Nikiski, turning a 6-3 Nikiski lead into a 20-3 lead in Game 3. Wik had 11 aces and five assists.

Melanie Sexton had seven kills, two blocks and 11 digs for the Bulldogs, while Bethany Carstens had seven kills and a block, Jamie Yerkes had five kills, Rylee Jackson had four kills, Kaitlyn Johnson had 14 assists, Kelsey Clark had 12 digs and Elisa Fardin had 13 digs.

“I felt like ACS played some tough defense and got the ball over a lot,” Segura said. “But our hitters did very well today. They made very few mistakes.”
