Soldotna volleyball tops Kodiak on Friday, Saturday

The host Soldotna volleyball team defeated Kodiak on Friday and Saturday in Northern Lights Conference play to move to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the NLC.

Friday, the Stars topped the Bears 3-1, while Saturday’s victory was a clean sweep.

Soldotna head coach Luke Baumer said the team’s strength over the weekend was serve-receive, and Soldotna’s serving was not far behind.

“The big thing is we have so many weapons,” Baumer said. “We have so much depth.”

Baumer said middle Bailey Armstrong and outside hitter Ituau Tuisaula make things tough when both are in the front row.

“Who do we camp on?” Baumer said of the problem opponents face. “We can’t camp on both.”

The coach said senior Kylie Ness and junior Morgan Bouschor add nice depth on the outside.

Baumer added that senior libero Holleigh Jaime does a great job on defense.

The Stars will be at the Shayna Pritchard Memorial Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
