Volleyball takes region 10 with ALA defeat

Sun Advocate sports reporter

On Thursday it was a game, set, match and region title for the lady Dino volleyball team. ALA had handed Carbon its only loss for the season in the region and it was the last team standing in the way of another title for the year. It took four sets to do it, but in the end it was a win and a region 10 title. The Dinos sent ALA packing with scores of 25-18, 25-23, 23-25, and 27-25.

In the first visit ever to the Leadership Academy, Carbon found themselves in a small, crowed and noisy gym, barely able to hear coach Potts as he called in plays. But the team focused on the job at hand and easily downed the Eagles in set one. In set two, Carbon had the lead most of the way, but let ALA tie in at 15, then it was nip and tuck the rest of the way with the Dinos prevailing.

ALA took the lead in the third and Carbon battled back, but fell just short of the sweep. Neither team wanted to settle for second place in the region and game four became an epic battle. Carbon jumped out quickly, but ran into trouble mid way and the Eagles took advantage and roared back. At 25 it was tied, but Carbon got two points to end it.

Joy Malone again was a monster at the net with 32 kills. Four Dinos served up three aces in the match; Sara Potts, Mariah Pollock, Sam Olsen, and Merlinda Molinar. The team did not record many blocks, but there were 104 team digs to keep them out of trouble. Kacylia Ivory led the way with 24, Pollock had 16, and Donathan added 15. Donathan also dished 29 set assists.

Coach Potts was ecstatic with the win, which had been few in preseason action, but as the region action began, they got stronger and stronger. The last two matches have seen some of the best play and hustle from the squad so far this season.

"It's a great time for us to be peaking as we head into the tournament," he added.

The state tournament starts this Friday at UVU. Carbon will play at 9:30 a.m. and will match up with either Bear River or Ben Loman.
