     The Carey School Panthers got their first look at the three-time defending State 1A Division 2 volleyball champion Camas County Mushers on Tuesday on the Carey hardwoods.

     And even without graduated star Katelyn Peterson, the Mushers (6-0 league) still appear to be the league favorite with hitter Stephanie Moore picking up where Peterson left off. Camas won 25-12, 25-16, 25-9.

     Carey coach Kathy Whitworth said Camas hitters kept pounding the ball at her players. The Mushers competed against bigger schools in last weekend’s Twin Falls Invitational and learned lessons to take back to league play.

     Leading Carey (2-3, 1-3 league) were McKayla Mecham (6 blocks, 3 kills, 10 digs), Jaide Parke (3 kills), Lilly Rivera (8 digs, 5 serves in a row) and Morgan Parke (2 blocks).

     The Mushers have breezed past Lighthouse Christian, Richfield, Murtaugh, the Community School of Sun Valley, Castleford and Carey, with only a Thursday home match against its strongest rival, Dietrich, left on its first turn around the eight-school league.

     Carey, meanwhile, earned a 25-7, 24-26, 15-10 home nonleague win over Oakley last Thursday in addition to absorbing a 25-13, 25-18, 25-21 loss to Dietrich in the other match of the three-school triangular.

     Jaide Parke’s 15 consecutive serving points in the first game against Oakley got Carey off to a strong start. Parke (8 digs) did well on defense, too. Mecham (9 blocks, 7 kills) was a force at the net. Daphne Kirkland (6 serves in a row) and Angelica Zarate (7 straight) were strong at the stripe.

     Carey visits the Community School (0-5, 0-4) Monday, Sept. 17, for a 6 p.m. varsity match.
