Hi-Line Volleyball Roundup

Chinook earns key District 6C East wins

It’s hard to believe, but the high school volleyball season has already reached the midway point. This coming weekend, some teams will take a break from conference play to participate in showcases in Fort Benton and Chester, but soon enough, the conference races will heat back up again.

As for this past week of prep volleyball on the Hi-Line, the action got going last Tuesday as North Star swept rival Chester/J-I by scores of 25-9, 25-11 and 25-12.

It’s been a tough season for the Hawks, who got three kills, one block and eight digs from senior Denerey Haaland in the loss to the Knights in Rudyard. Meanwhile, North Star was led by Bettie Carlon and Tylynn Rettig, who each recorded seven kills. Carlon also had two blocks, three aces and 18 digs, while Rettig had a match-high 26 digs. Graysen Spicher totaled 15 assists and five service aces.

As good as things went for North Star on Tuesday night, they went even better for Chinook on Thursday. Playing the Knights at home, the Sugarbeeters swept the match by scores of 25-13, 25-13 and 25-22.

It was a big District 6C East win for Chinook, which got 10 kills, eight blocks and three aces by Mahkayla Farmer. Emily Dennis added 20 digs. North Star was led by seven kills from Melissa Pester. Tylynn Rettig added 33 digs and Kiera Miller had six stuff blocks.

Meanwhile, on Friday night, the C/J-I Hawks bounced back with a two-match sweep of struggling Hays-Lodge Pole. Playing in Chester, the Hawks beat the Thunderbirds by scores of 25-16, 25-12 and 25-15 in the first match. Allix Goldhahn had seven kills, while Madeline Woods racked up 13 assists, five kills and three digs in the win. The T-Birds got four digs and two kills by Cory Carrywater.

IN the second match, C/J-I again swept the T-Birds, this time by scores of 25-8, 25-23 and 25-21. Peyton Cole totaled four kills for the Hawks, while Erin Wolfe had six aces and three blocks. HLP was led by two kills and three digs form Carrywater.

The action again heated up on Saturday, where Chinook kept rolling.

In a non-conference match in Sunburst, the Beeters beat the Refiners by scores of 25-21, 25-16 and 25-17. Farmer had a huge match with 19 kills and four blocks, but Chinook also got 17 assists and four service aces from Hannah Weber.

North Star got back on track as well. Playing at home, the Knights thumped the Valier Panthers by scores of 25-10, 25-12 and 25-18. In the easy win, North Star was paced by Bettie Carlon’s seven kills and four aces. Mackenzie Hansen and Melissa Pester were big on defense as well. Hansen had 18 digs and Pester totaled three blocks for the Knights.

Non-conference play didn’t go as well on Saturday for C/J-I. On the road in Dutton, the Hawks were swept by Dutton-Brady by scores of 25-23, 25-22 and 25-15. Emma Earl and Madeline Woods each had three kills for the Hawks, while Earl added 10 assists. Denerey Haaland lead the Hawks in digs with 17.

Both area Class B teams were swept by tough opponents on Saturday as well.

In Rocky Boy, the host Morning Stars were defeated by 1B power Choteau. The Bulldogs, who also beat Havre High on Saturday morning, downed the Morning Stars by scores of 25-21, 25-16 and 25-17. Savannah Stump led Rocky Boy with seven kills and three aces, while Rainey Singer had 17 digs.

Harlem was on the road Saturday, and swept by 2B rival Wolf Point. The Wolves beat the Wildcats by scores of 25-10, 25-11 and 25-15. In the rough outing, Harlem got three kills and two aces by Tyra Allen, while Erin LaMere had eight assists and Coco Moore totaled six digs.
