With the season almost complete, the Carbon High girls volleyball team is picking up steam with a key Region 12 win (19-25, 25-8. 25-23, 25-21) against Payson on Tuesday night at home.
After dropping the first set to Payson, the Lady Dinos seemed to put everything together in winning three straight sets for the victory.
Passing was crisp, kill attempts were converted and team errors were kept to a minimum.
"The girls didn't stop hitting tonight and they played really well," said CHS head coach Danielle Jensen.
Seniors Annika Hansen and Shelby Cornforth each converted a number of key kills for Carbon as they began to take control of the game.
"Annika has always been a big hitter for us," Jensen said. "The passing from our setters has gotten much better over the season and it has really made a difference for the team."
Hansen credits the work in practice that the team has put in since the season started with making the difference.
"We've been building off the hard work in practice and we're getting better as a team each game," said Hansen.
With two games left on the schedule, the Lady Dinos 7-11 overall and 3-3 in Region 12, will travel to Juab on Oct. 22 before returning home for their final home game on Oct. 24 against Richfield.
