Correction:In the Sept. 15 game with Mount Si, Erin Townsend
recorded 15 kills and 3 blocks, while Katie Power - who set the game -
had 24 assists, 6 kills, 2 digs and 2 aces. Julie Henry, who was listed as a
player in the game, was actually in San Diego. The Valley Record regrets the
errors, and hopes Miss Henry enjoyed her trip to Mission Bay.
