Volleyball: CA, MB, NMB score key region sweeps

North Myrtle Beach took a big step toward defending its region title Thursday night with a 3-1 victory over host St. James.

The Lady Chiefs, also the reigning Class 3A state champion, remained undefeated in region play by beating the Lady Sharks, perhaps North Myrtle Beach’s toughest challenge in their Region 7-3A repeat bid.

North Myrtle Beach won the first set 25-14 but suffered a setback in the second, falling 25-23 to St. James. But the Lady Chiefs took control in the third, winning 25-20 before rolling to a 25-12 match-clincher.

North Myrtle Beach’s Marci Chestnut had 17 kills, followed by Ellen Johnson with 16, and teammate Tara Hix had 44 assists. St. James was led by Alexis Powell’s six kills and Skylar Campbell’s 12 digs.

* Myrtle Beach 3, Georgetown 0: The Lady Seahawks improved to 3-1 in region play with a sweep of the Lady Bulldogs.

Myrtle Beach won by scores of 25-9 25-15, 25-15 over visiting Georgetown. Ally Bills had a match-high 31 assists and Nikki Uzzel had 13 kills.

Myrtle Beach travels to the White Knoll Invitational, a tournament featuring top teams from around the state, this weekend.

* Christian Academy 3, James Island Christian 0: The Lady Saints remained perfect in region play with an impressive sweep of James Island Christian on Thursday.

The Lady Saints (10-4 overall, 8-0 region) won by scores of 25-4, 25-20, 25-7 win and served a total of 23 aces as a team.

Gray Williams led the way with five aces followed by Amelia Antonucci, Caroline Gore, and Claudia Markley with four apiece. Rebekah Bowers had 8 kills.

The Lady Saints play at Cathedral Academy on Monday in a rematch of last year’s state championship match. They also face a rematch with St. James on Wednesday after sweeping the Lady Sharks earlier this week.
