Nikiski netters rebound to sweep Seahawks

Posted: Sunday, August 26, 2001

The Nikiski volleyball team bounced back from a Tuesday defeat at Homer to down host Seward 16-14, 15-9 and 15-8 Friday.

"The only thing I recognized between Friday and Tuesday were the uniforms," Nikiski volleyball coach Cherrie Hobart-Verkuilen said. "The level of play was completely different. The intensity level was high, we were communicating and we had success on offense."

The game was Nikiski's District 3/4A opener. Verkuilen said Seward is traditionally one of the district's stronger teams, so it was great to open the district schedule with a victory over the Seahawks.

Mindy Cason had 13 kills and seven stuff blocks for the Bulldogs, while Karen Rabung added eight kills and seven stuff blocks.

Hobart-Verkuilen also was happy with the defensive effort of Ashley Goff and the setting of Liz Golia.

The Bulldogs will get back in action Friday and Saturday at a tournament at East High School.
