Staff report

The Soldotna volleyball team continued its early season winning streak with a three-game nonconference sweep Tuesday night in Seward.

The Stars took their fourth straight win to start the season with scores of 25-14, 25-21 and 25-18.

Junior Judah Aley and senior Makenna Rosin led a fierce Soldotna attack, as Aley nailed down nine kills and Rosin had five, along with three blocks. Sophomore Shaylynn Zener came up with 14 digs and eight points, while Sylvia Tuisaula notched nine points and three kills, and Lindsey Wong provided 11 points.

With the win in their pockets, Stars coach Sheila Kupferschmid said the team is ready for their first Northern Lights Conference matchup this weekend against Kodiak. The two teams play Friday at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

“We’re really looking forward to Kodiak, they’re always tough,” Kupferschmid said.
