Truckee volleyball off to 2-0 start in league

A shorthanded Truckee High volleyball team opened Northern 3A league play with a pair of wins at Lowry and Spring Creek this past weekend.

Playing without three of their starters due to injuries and illness, the Wolverines defeated Lowry in straight sets, 25-10, 25-19, 25-10, on Friday, then followed with an easy win over Spring Creek, 25-13, 25-15, 25-12, on Saturday.

The Wolverines improved to 2-0 in league and 11-3 overall.

Truckee played without senior Michelle Hoehn (sprained ankle), junior Merry Brown (illness) and freshman Annie Reiswig, who fractured her foot early last week and may sit out the next four to six weeks, said Truckee head coach Nicole Annaloro.

“They pulled together,” Annaloro said of her team and its performance despite the absent players. “It’s such a good group.”

Against Lowry, seniors Callan Finney and Nikki Schneider led the way with nine kills apiece, while senior Kati Murphy added eight kills, three blocks and two service aces. Finney also had two aces.

Finney slammed 15 kills and had two aces against Spring Creek. Schneider posted seven kills and one ace, and Murphy had seven kills, three aces and one block.

On Tuesday, Sept. 16, Truckee defeated visiting Portola in three games, 25-20, 25-23, 25-10.
