Volleyball

• The Mariner volleyball team currently has an overall record of 3-7.

Oct. 6: Homer vs. Cordova:

Final score: 3-1, Homer.

Oct. 8: Homer vs. Soldotna:

Final score: 3-0, Soldotna.

• The Mariners came out firing with a 15-8 lead in the first set. Later, a service point by lethal senior hitter Mary Hana Bowe pulled Homer to a 20-16 lead, but SoHi answered with four straight points to tie it up.

“We had a hard time judging the SoHi serve,” said Homer coach Kristie Mastre. “We were only at 64 percent (against Soldotna serving), which isn’t good.”

Mary Hana Bowe spikes the ball past a Cordova player during the Mariner home game on Thursday, Oct. 6.
