The fall was good for the Chief Kanim Middle School varsity volleyball teams. The seventh grade finished undefeated, while the eighth grade team finished at 7-1.
The seventh graders beat Tolt in the final match on Tuesday, Oct. 25. Coach Tyrholm said everyone showed their skills with good passes, sets and hits. There were many rallies in the games, showing how much players have improved.
The eighth grade defeated Tolt that same night. The first game was a tough battle and the Hawks fell short, losing 19-21. Brooke Covello had four kills, complemented by Sarah Edwards’ passing. The Lady Hawks had to come from behind to win in game two, and did so by strong serving from Ellie Morris, who had eight in a row. Brooke Covello finished off the game with five serves in a row. In game three, Alex Korolenko served nine in a row to give the final victory to CKMS. The girls played tough, coach Joyce Kjorsvik said.
