Truckee senior Kelly Cross reached a milestone last month against Fernley, surpassing 1,000 career kills as a member of the Wolverines varsity program.

Upon reaching 1,000 kills on Oct. 24, Truckee called timeout and alumna Mackenzie Redner, who finished her career at Truckee with 1,023 kills, presented Cross with a golden volleyball.

Truckee went on to defeat Fernley in straight sets to improve to 16-0 in Northern League play. Redner, Cross (2014) and Maia Dvoracek (2017) are the only Wolverines to surpass 1,000 kills. Dvoracek has the most in program history with 1,133. Cross concluded the regular season with 1,013 kills.

Truckee will begin postseason play at home at noon on Saturday, Oct. 9. The Wolverines will receive a first-round bye following an undefeated run through the Class 3A Northern League.
