• The Etna Lions varsity volleyball squad picked up its second Shasta Cascade League win on Tuesday night, 3-1, over the visiting Burney Raiders. Burney won the first set 25-14. The Lions won the next three 27-25, 25-18 and 25-11.

    The Raiders raced out to a 9-1 advantage in set-one, helped by three Maddie Luntey kills. Trailing 12-4, Etna closed to within five points, 12-7, on a pair of aces from Lexi Morrill and a Burney error. Other than two aces by Burney’s Hannah Riddell and a couple of kills from Lion Hayley Kaae, the teams gained points via opposition errors the rest of the set. Burney made a few less mistakes for the 25-14 win.

    Set-two was tight the entire way, with four points being the biggest margin when Burney led 13-9. The Raiders took the lead 3-2 on an Etna miscue and stayed in front or tied until Etna took a 20-19 advantage on a Burney hitting error. The Raiders regained the lead, 22-21, on an ace by Tymber Wells. A Megan Menne block tied it for Etna 22-22. The set was tied 24-24, when an ace by Dani Eiler put Etna up 25-24. The teams exchanged “oops” making it 26-25, and then Kaae closed out the set with a kill, 27-25.

    Burney came out strong in the third set building a six-point lead at 10-4 on an ace by Lauren Schneider. However, down 13-7, Etna began to battle its way back. Back-to-back aces by Molly Schaefer made it 13-9. A Menne block and an Eiler ace made it a one-point margin at 14-13. The Lions took their first lead of the set 16-15 on two straight kills by Kaae. Burney came back to tie it at 17-17, but a tip for a point by Morrill put Etna up for good, 18-17. The Lions held Burney to just one more point for the remainder of the set, and Katie Turner ended it with a kill, 25-18. (more…)
