Volleyball: Lady Chiefs dig deep, fend off Lady Sharks

nmbvol-3After allowing Myrtle Beach to rally for a win in a first-place showdown on Tuesday, the North Myrtle Beach volleyball team almost fell victim to a strong comeback bid by host St. James on Thursday.

After winning the first two sets, the Lady Chiefs appeared to be in their way to an easy sweep. But the Lady Sharks picked up their defense and dug themselves out of the hole to win the next two sets by 25-23, 25-23 scores to force a deciding fifth set.

Both teams went back and forth before St. James went up 13-10. With their backs against the wall, the Lady Chiefs were able to even the score at 14-14. The two teams went back and forth before Kayla Henley’s kill made it 17-16. North Myrtle Beach then managed to get a block for the final point to secure the win.

Henley led the Lady Chiefs with 16 Kills, Maggie Hash had 10 and Maddie Roy had nine. Raegan Matney had 42 assists.

The Lady Chiefs (14-9 overall, 4-1 region) are at Socastee on Monday.

* Myrtle Beach 3, Wilson 0: The Lady Seahawks (27-1-1, 5-0) capped a long week by sweeping the Lady Tigers for their 11th win in six days. Myrtle Beach won 25-8, 25-10, and 25-10 with a younger lineup.

Natalie Benkandil had 17 assists and 11 service points, Kristiasha Myers made 13 kills, Lauren DiMauro and Kathryn Hollingsworth had four aces apiece, and Tess Edwards had nine service points and two aces.

Myrtle Beach gets a much-needed break before hosting region opponent St. James on Tuesday.

* Carolina Forest 3, Sumter 0: The Lady Panthers remain undefeated in region play at 7-0 by sweeping host Sumter 3-0.

Leading the Lady Panthers were Alexis Tomlin with 15 kills, and Hope Goodwin and Kaitlyn Andresen with 10 kills each. Goodwin also led the team with 12 service points and 16 digs.

* Christian Academy 3, Marlboro Academy 1: The Lady Saints used a younger lineup to score a road region victory by scores of 26-24, 21-15, 25-16 and 25-14.

Junior Julia Markley had a team-=high 15 assists, and sister Natalie Markley had eight kills and 34 assists. Eighth-graders Kaelyn Haldi (13 kills) and Ellyn Adams (five aces) also had big games for the Lady Saints.
