Truckee volleyball still unbeaten in 3A

Staff reports

The Truckee High volleyball team continued its dominance over the Northern 3A with wins over Dayton and Yerington on Friday and Saturday.

Truckee is now 12-0 in league and 30-3 overall with two matches remaining.

The Wolverines defeated second-place Yerington in three games, 25-19, 25-12, 25-22.

Nicole Annaloro, Truckee’s head coach, said the Lions matched the Wolverines point for point for much of the first game. Truckee pulled away at the end, and carried its momentum into the second game.

Yerington, which is the only league team to force a fourth game against Truckee (back on Sept. 21), would not go easy in Game 3.

“They had the lead for most of the game, and at one point had a 6-point lead,” Annaloro said.
