The Skyview Panthers routed the Homer Mariners in Homer Friday in Northern Lights Conference play. The Panthers won 25-18, 25-19 and 26-24.
"It's always good to win the region match on your opponent's floor," said Skyview coach Sheila Kupferschmid. "The kids came out to play, and we were able to clinch that third set."
Amber Kunz was on top of her game for the Panthers, collecting 17 kills and picking up 10 digs. Anna Bonebrake had seven kills and five block kills while Cady Bon netted four kills and 10 digs. Bonebrake served for 13 points and Melissa Fay served for nine.
Kupferschmid said her squad has become more consistent on the court.
"I think their defense is coming around so they're becoming more aggressive. Our goal is not to let too many balls hit the floor. We're working on that, and the kids are responding," Kuferschmid said.
Skyview, now 2-1 in region play, travels to Seward Tuesday.
