FLINT – The Carman-Ainsworth volleyball team fell to 0-3 in the Saginaw Valley League South, after losing to Flint Powers Catholic 21-25, 25-14, 13-25, 18-25 Tuesday night.

“It’s disappointing to be 0-3 in the league and know that winning the league is not going to happen for us now,” said Lady Cavs coach Barb Hurand. “Some kids work hard out there for every point, while others don’t work as hard. We’re going to have to figure it out sooner than later how to get every kid to care enough to start doing their jobs in their positions. While winning the league is no longer a realistic goal for us, we have a lot of season left to make some noise. That’s what I need to get every kid to believe in right now!”

Diamond Lester led the Carman- Ainsworth attack against Powers, rattling off 13 kills, 12 digs and three blocks. Hannah Thurston added 22 digs and three aces. Destiny Johnson had seven kills and three blocks, while Mary Dollinger had seven digs and a team-high 15 assists. Aniya Harmon finished with 10 digs, eight assists and three kills.

Last Thursday, the Lady Cavs swept Owosso 25-22, 25-33, 25-13. Lester led Carman-Ainsworth with 10 kills and seven aces. Johnson had seven kills and four solo blocks, while Dollinger dished out a teamhigh 17 assists. Thurston led the Lady Cavaliers in digs with 15, while Sarah Roe added five service points with two aces. Harmon added 11 assists, and Areyana Harrison chipped in with five kills.

Carman-Ainsworth, 6-13-1 overall and 0-3 in league play, hosts Clio tonight at 7 p.m.
