Volleyball: Belle Chasse, Mount Carmel win in straight sets Wednesday
Area Prep Volleyball Report for Thursday, Sept. 16
The wait was long but it was worth it.
After seeing its first five scheduled matches canceled due to the effects of Hurricane Ida, Belle Chasse finally got a chance to take to the court Wednesday and it was as successful debut.
The Cardinals, who reached the Division II regional round of the playoffs last season, downed Warren Easton 25-9, 25-11, 25-6 at home.
Kassidi Barthelemy led the way with nine kills and 13 assists while Tylen Bell produced eight kills for the Cardinals.
Belle Chasse returns to action this evening, hosting McGehee at 5 p.m.
Perennial power Mount Carmel Academy lost in the Division I semifinals a year ago after winning six straight state titles and the Cubs are off to an unusually slow start to its season but against extremely tough competition out of state.
Back home, the Cubs figure to roll and they certainly did Wednesday with a 25-11, 25-9, 25-10 victory at home over Northshore.
Olivia Stant had 11 kills for the Cubs, Lindsey Wickersham served three aces and dished up 14 assists. Emery Mayer had 16 assists, Nola Sevin produced 22 digs and Julianna Indovina finished with four blocks for Mount Carmel, which has 14 state championships overall.
The Cubs (2-5) will participate in the annual Catholic League tournament this weekend.
