Henley's streak over at 127 wins
KLAMATH FALLS -- Lakeview ended Henley's 127-match Skyline Conference volleyball winning streak Thursday night, rallying from a 12-0 deficit in the third game to upset the Hornets 8-15, 15-6, 15-13.
Finally someone other than Henley wins, Lakeview coach Barry Shullanberger said, savoring his first victory over Henley in his six-year hitch with the Honkers.
The Hornets' streak dated back to 1989. They have enjoyed at least a share of the conference title for the last 10 years.
Lakeview just did a real good job, Henley coach Chuck Shannon said. We had several chances (in that third game), but they didn't go down. We couldn't stop them.
During the Honkers' rally Erika Coon had three kills and a block and freshman Frances Hartman had two key blocks at points 9 and 10.
Kylie Bray served points 7-12 for the Honkers and teammate Rachel Manibusan served out the final three points.
Lakeview also pulled away from a 5-5 tie in the second game to set the stage for the upset.
Jessie Horsley had 15 kills to lead the Hornets effort, as they fell to 5-1 in conference.
PHOENIX 15-15, ILLINOIS VALLEY -- At Cave Junction, Beth Nikodym was 11-of-11 serving for the Pirates, including five aces, leading the team to a 45-of-48 service performance.
Teammate Jessica Thompson was 8-for-8, including three aces, and added five kills.
Colleen Gunn was the squad's kill leader in the match with eight, as the Pirates improve to 8-4 overall and 4-2 in Skyline.
ROGUE RIVER 15-15, MAZAMA 7-3 -- At Klamath Falls, Rogue River squared its Skyline record at 3-3, while the Vikings slipped to 0-6.
NORTH VALLEY 17-15, HIDDEN VALLEY 15-9 -- At Murphy, Hidden Valley led 10-1 in the first game and missed four serves at game-point.
Charlotte Beck led North Valley with nine kills and Sarah Towns provided the Knights effective serving in Game 2.
For Hidden Valley, Dory Thompson had a team-high four kills.
