Pahranagat Valley High school (PVHS) volleyball scored 19 points in a row in the second set of their match with Sandy Valley, Oct. 12. The girls won the match 3-0 by scores of 25-7, 25-4, and 25-13.
Leading 5-3 in the second set, Emily Hansen served 19 straight points before the girls made a mistake and gave a final point to Sandy Valley. The Sidewinders quickly turned the ball back over to Pahranagat and the girls finished out the game.
On Oct. 9, PVHS hosted Lake Mead, second place in the 2A Southern League, and also beat them, 3-0. Scores were 25-12, 25-15, and 25-10.
Neither match was particularly close as both Sandy Valley and Lake Mead had numerous receiving and ball handling errors which gave points to the Lady Panthers.
Alamo coach Milly Walch said, “Giving away points like that can be even worse than hitting the ball into the net on a serve or a kill attempt.”
The Lady Panthers now have four matches left in the regular season, two at home and two on the road beginning this Friday in Alamo with Word of Life.
On Oct. 23, the girls have a return match with White Pine in Ely. Pahranagat won the first match 3-0 in Alamo, Sept. 25.
Their final league match is with Green Valley Christian in Alamo, Oct. 25, and they wind up the regular season with a match at Lincoln County in Panaca, Oct. 30.
“We are looking forward to these matches, especially with Lincoln and White Pine, and some good competition with them. It will give us a gage as to where we are at heading into regionals,” said Walch.
The 1A South/Central playoffs will be Nov. 2-3 at Tonopah.
Pahranagat is the five-time defending regional tournament champions and two-time defending state champion.
The 1A Class state tournament begins Nov. 9 at Reed High School in Reno and concludes with the finals on Nov. 10 at Bishop Manogue High in Reno.
