Volleyball Roundup: NMB wins; CF, SJ, Socastee fall

North Myrtle Beach’s first-round opponent seemed like a warmup for what’s still to come.

The Class AAA Region VIII-AAA No. 2-seeded Lady Chiefs came out firing against the No. 3-seeded Region VII-AAA Berkeley Stags from Moncks Corner and never let up.

Opening game one of the best of five match, the Chiefs let the first point slide, but picked up the side out and then saw Taylor Allman reel off seven straight points from the serve to lead the Chiefs to an 8-1 start and the beginnings of a fairly easy win, despite playing with a lack of energy.

“We didn’t play with a lot of energy, but it was a win. Hopefully we’ll play better on Thursday”, said Lady Chiefs Coach Estelle Barentine.

Winning the first two games easily 25-16, 25-16, the Chiefs started out in similar fashion for the third and final game, opening a 3-1 lead before Marci Chestnut served five straight points to lead 8-1. Berkeley showed much more enthusiasm during the third game, but it was too late. The Lady Chiefs picked up the third game 25-18, and a normally 1 1/2- to 2-hour match was over in an hour and 10 minutes.

The Chiefs were led by Allman, who went 15-for-15 serving with seven service aces and had seven kills. Ellen Johnson had nine kills in the contest.

North Myrtle Beach moves on to play No. 1-seeded Chapin on Thursday.

* Dutch Fork 3, Carolina Forest 1: The Lady Panthers were bounced from the first round of the Class AAAA playoffs for the third straight year, falling to visiting Dutch Fork on Tuesday night.

Dutch Fork won the opener 25-16, but Carolina Forest rebounded for a 25-17 win in the second game. But Dutch Fork reclaimed the momentum and went on to wins of 25-21, 25-22 to close out the Lady Panthers’ campaign.

“The girls played hard, we just couldn’t stop one player,” Carolina Forrest coach Brittany Drew said. “They had one girl (Ray Golston) who was 5-foot-7 and could hit the ball harder than I’ve ever seen a high school player hit it.”

Katie Davis led Carolina Forest with 17 kills and also had eighth service aces and 21 service points. Senior teammate Sara Bane added 15 kills as their high school careers came to a close. Both will participate in the North-South All-Star Game next month.

* Hilton Head 3, St. James 2: St. James took host Hilton Head to the limit before falling 3-2 in the first round of the Class AAA playoffs.
