NMB keeps hot streak going; MB, Socastee survive scares

Fourteen games and six matches into the 2012 season and the North Myrtle Beach volleyball team still hasn’t tasted defeat.

The Lady Chiefs extended their streak of season-opening sweep to six on Wednesday with a pair of wins over Waccamaw and host Carolina Forest.

North Myrtle Beach defeated Waccamaw 2-0 by scores of 25-13 and 25-8. Taylor Allman had 10 kills, Tara Hix added 18 assists and Ellen Johnson had six kills and went 14 for 14 on serves with two aces.

North Myrtle Beach had a tougher opening game against Carolina Forest at 25-20, but finished strong to complete the sweep with a 25-11 close-out victory.  Allman had nine kills , Ellen Johnson added six kills and Hix chipped in 18 more assists.

The North Myrtle Beach volleyball team has one goal for the 2012 season – to reach the Class AAA State Championship match. Along the way, Lady Chiefs coach Estelle Barentine wants her squad to work hard and improve each time out. So far, so good as the Lady Chiefs improved to 6-0 on the season.

Carolina Forest defeated Waccamaw 2-1 by scores of 25-19, 17-25, 15-7. Cristina Wright had five kills and three blocks for the Lady Panthers and Ellissa Smalls added six kills.

* Myrtle Beach 3, MB Christian Academy 2: The Myrtle Beach High volleyball team improved to 2-0 on the season thanks to a comeback win over Myrtle Beach Christian Academy by a 3-2 score.

The Lady Seahawks rallied from an 0-2 deficit after suffering losses of 23-25 and 18-25 to start the match before rattling of victories of 25-20, 25-21 and 15-5.

Myrtle Beach junior Shelby Sheets led the team with 20 kills, but it was a trio of ninth-graders who rose to the occasion. Freshmen Maggie Slabinski and Emily Wunder contributed seven kills apiece and Kate Fullwood added six aces.

* Socastee 3, Conway 2: The Lady Braves also had to battle from behind to defeat the host Lady Tigers, who won the opening game by a 25-21 score.

Socastee rallied back for wins of 25-17 and 25-20 before dropping the fourth by a decisive 9-25 score. The Lady Braves regrouped to take the tiebreaker by a 15-12 tally.

Socastee’s Dale Rogers had 14 kills and four blocks, Katherine Hall added eight service points and 10 kills and Alison Markley delivered 26 service points.

Conway was led by Ryley Hughes’ 16 assists, 10 digs and four service aces. Teammate Kerry Elms added nine kills.
