The Lady Kardinals were ousted by Wasilla 3-1 on Wednesday evening at Kenai in Northern Lights Conference play.
Wasilla won the first game 25-20, and Kenai came back to win the second, 25-20, but Wasilla won the final two games with scores of 25-18 and 25-22.
“We played really well against them, and held with them for the most part,” Kenai coach Tracie Beck said. “We almost won the fourth game, but the girls played great ball and didn’t let anything go uncontested. We absolutely made some improvement.”
Beck had great appreciation for the team and said the group is well-rounded.
Senior Sarah Rawson had 15 assists, junior Erica Tofte recorded three aces and five kills, junior Dacia Shier had four kills and sophomore Ali Fitt made the jump up from the JV team to produce three aces.
Beck mentioned that junior starter Justice English did not play due to injury.
Kenai still has not broken into the win column, holding a 0-5 record, and will play Palmer at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday at Kenai High School.
