Volleyball: Saints rally past Sharks; Panthers sweep WF

cambvolley-4spikesjThe Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach girls volleyball team got a little bit of revenge and a whole lot of drama in Thursday’s rematch with St. James.

After being swept on their home court by the Lady Sharks last week, the Lady Saints made a massive turnaround in the return trip to the Shark Tank with a hard-fought 3-2 victory in a fifth-set tiebreaker.

Christian Academy won a close opening set 25-23 before dropping the next two sets 12-25 and 22-25. With their backs against the wall, the Lady Saints rallied to take the fourth set 25-17 and the tiebreakers by a 15-13 score to cap the comeback win.

Natalia Antonucci posted a team-high 10 kills and three aces, and twins Julia and Natalie Markley added nine and seven kills apiece to lead the Lady Saints. Natalie Markley also had 22 assists.

St. James was led by Skyla Corey’s 10 service points, 10 kills and seven blocks, and Mallory Farmer’s 20 service points and seven kills. The Lady Sharks will travel to Sumter for the Lady Gamecock Spike-off this weekend.

* Carolina Forest 3, West Florence 0: The Lady Panthers improved to 7-1 by sweeping West Florence by scores of 25-13, 25-21, and 25-19. Leading for the Panthers were Alexis Tomlin (17 kills and 12 service points) and Kenzlie Andresen (11 kills and five blocks).
