It was an action-packed week for the PCHS volleyball team.

Homecoming week included a bonfire, float building, a parade, dance, two home games and more. 

On Thursday, Pershing County beat Battle Mountain (22-25, 25-16, 25-13, 25-14). On Saturday, Pershing County lost to the Incline Highlanders 25-15, 25-19 and 25-20.

The Mustangs now stands at 4-10 overall and 2-6 in the 2A Northern League. 

The stats against Battle Mountain show that the girls played as a team. Josie Crim punched in 19 assists and five ace serves. 

Presley Burrows played like a champ with nine kills, 15 digs and four ace serves. Makenna Houston added 16 digs, four kills and two ace serves.

“Alyssa Montes improves every game,” said coach Monica Halverson. “She’s such an asset to our team.” 

The graduating senior seemed to be everywhere on Thursday, picking up hard-hit balls from the Longhorns while her family watched from the bleachers.

“We needed this,” said Halverson. “It feels good to play to win.”

It was the last homecoming  maatch for Montes, Moura, Castro and Houston. They each graduate this spring.



Incline knocks off PCHS

On Saturday Incline gave Pershing County a workout.

“They have some players that really drive the ball down,” said the coach. Pershing improved every set but was unable to rally against one of the top teams in the league. Incline (9-2) is second only to the Yerington Lions (11-0).

Aledda Sam, Alayna Godinez and Kaelyn Castro teamed up at the net, pressuring Incline and making them adjust their hits. Daralyn Moura added nine digs and one ace serve. 

Burrows punched in seven kills, four ace serves and nine digs. Crim contributed 15 assists and three digs. Houston racked up 18 digs, two kills and two ace serves.



JV girls split matches

The JV volleyball team ignited the action at both home games. They beat Battle Mountain JV (25-15, 16-25, 15-11) at the homecoming game. 

On Saturday, Incline JV knocked off Pershing JV in two sets 25-14, 25-15.

“Our girls were excited to play Battle Mountain,” said Coach Nancy Meissner. “They attacked well.”

Cheyeanne Diaz was the top attacker with six kills. Isabela Rosas, Kaydance Happy and Kaylen Halverson each added two. 

Andrea Canchola, Aimee Carpenter and Senicka Happy each contributed one kill. Canchola was also the leading passer with backup from Happy and Rosas.

At Saturday’s match against Incline, Pershing County JV’s energy level plummeted.

“We struggled with our momentum but had glimpses of successful play,” said the coach. 

Once again, Canchola emerged as the top passer with help from Hannah Montes and Diaz. The top servers were Carpenter, Rosas and Kaydance Happy with three points each.

On Wednesday, Pershing County travels to the Silver State Volleyball Club in Reno. 

They’ll play the Coral Academy of Science. 

The girls come home on Friday,  to host Yerington. JV opens at 4 p.m. The varsity game begins at 5 p.m.
