Carlmont’s varsity volleyball shut out the Mills Vikings with a three-set win.

On Tuesday, Sept. 29, the Scots stormed the court.  In addition to it being the first home game of the season, senior Alexis Morrow was celebrating her 17th birthday.

“It’s a lot of fun playing on my birthday,” said Morrow. “There’s no place I’d rather be today.”

From the get-go, Carlmont and Mills seemed to be even rivals with exchanges in blocking and hitting from both sides.  Morrow and sophomore Maya McClellan showed formidable force against the Vikings, who were not able to pick up most of the pair’s kills.

“We played well in this game because we were able to come together as a team,” said McClellan.

Morrow showed consistent power as the team’s middle hitter and was able to help the Scots to a 25-13 victory in the first match.

The second match began with Mills taking a small lead, but a quick side out pulled Carlmont back ahead to a 10-8 advantage.

Senior Erin Alonso’s quick reflexes as the team’s libero entertained fans as she kicked a hard-to-set pass into an easy-to-hit ball for the front row players.

The second match ended with another 25-13 victory for the Scots.

The final match of the game began with Carlmont quickly gaining a 6-0 lead against the Vikings and maintaining momentum throughout the match.

Mills showed improved strategy against the Scots with well-executed pancakes and strong blocks.  However, it was too late in the game, and they were not able to fully get out of the hole they had dug themselves into.

With a final kill by junior Hannah Wright, the Scots took the third match 25-18.

Carlmont’s varsity coach Chris Crader said, “The team played well.  We had some ups and downs, but the girls played hard.  I was very pleased with the win.”
