Posted: Sunday, September 25, 2005

The Juneau-Douglas High School volleyball team dropped a rare set this weekend but kept its perfect Southeast Conference record in tact with two wins over host Sitka this weekend.

The Crimson Bears (9-1) swept the Wolves for the second time this year.

JDHS opened the weekend with a 25-8, 25-16, 25-7 win on Friday.

On Saturday, JDHS dropped the first set but rebounded to win 15-25, 25-9, 25-15, 25-10.

Jillian Hahnlen led the Bears with Saturday with a team-high 16 kills and five blocks.

Sara Manning and Lesley Kalbrener chipped in with seven kills each in the win.

Manning also led the team in digs with eight.

Rochele Rodman contributed eight digs and held down the setter position for the Crimson Bears as Torie Powers continued to heal her ankle sprain.

"As usual, Rochele came through," JDHS co-coach Dale Bontrager said. "We ran the 5-1 without Torie, when Torie's there we run a 6-2. She did a great job with that."

The junior varsity earned a pair of wins over the weekend, taking two matches from the Wolves in straight-set fashion.

On Friday, the JDHS junior varsity won 25-13, 25-15, 25-8. The Bears followed Saturday with a 25-12, 25-8, 25-16 win.

The 'C' team also won two games. The Bears topped Sitka 25-15, 25-18, 25-15 Friday and 25-10, 25-20, 25-13 Saturday.
