The Soldotna volleyball team advanced to the championship match of the Northern Lights Conference tournament in Kodiak with a victory over the Bears in the semifinals.

SoHi topped Kodiak 24-26, 26-24, 28-26 and 25-21. Saturday, SoHi plays the winner of the losers' bracket at 2 p.m. If SoHi loses, since it is a double-elimination tournament, the Stars get another crack at the title at 4 p.m.

Munn also had four blocks (one stuff), three aces and 15 kills.

"Kaycee as usual had a hand in everything," King wrote.
