Mirror Lake Middle School’s undefeated volleyball team capped a perfect season by going 9-0 against Anchorage School District competition at the ASD Varsity Jamboree on Saturday, Nov. 17.
The closest any team came to defeating the Coyotes were Wendler and Goldenview, who each fell by 25-20 margins. MLMS also defeated Clark (25-14), Hanshew (25-18), Begich (25-14), Romig (25-19), Gruening (25-17), Central (25-16) and Mears (25-20).
Coach Jerry Sather said 170 students in grades 6 through 8 turned out for the volleyball program this season. Sather said Chugiak High coach Bobbi Mason, along with CHS high school players, helped make this season a success.
“With 170 players in our program, the extra help makes a difference,” Sather said.
