Sun Staff report

The Truckee volleyball team finished 4-1 in the Davis (Calif.) High School Fall Classic on Saturday to improve to 9-8 overall on the season.

The Wolverines defeated Woodland in consecutive sets, 26-24 and 25-15, as well as West Campus, 25-13 and 25-13, and Yuba City, 25-8 and 25-9.

Pleasant Valley provided more of a test before Truckee won in three games, 25-27, 25-20 and 15-9, while Rio Americano was too much for the Wolverines as they fell in two, 16-25 and 24-26.

Annie Reiswig led the Wolverines in kills with 28 for the day, followed by Kiersten Knoppel with 24 and Mackenzie Redner with 20. Redner tallied 13 service aces and Knoppel finished with a team-high 47 serves as Truckee served at 90 percent as a team.

Kaylee Lewis posted nine blocks to lead the team, while Brittany Thomas was the primary setter and ended with 67 assists for the day. Sam Aubrey led in digs with 12, followed by Katie Mohun with 11.

Truckee lost one of its top players in the Yuba City match when senior outside hitter Krysta Murphy landed on the foot of an opposing player who flew under the net. Although Murphy injured her ankle on the play and sat out the rest of the tournament, Truckee head coach Erika Murphy said she expects her to mend quickly and soon rejoin the starting lineup.

Senior middle blocker Angelena Sahlberg was sick and also did not compete in the tournament. Even without two seniors, however, coach Murphy said she was happy with the way her team performed.
