Abbey Hughes had her serve working wonders for the Fulton Maroons Tuesday night.

Hughes went on a 13-point serving run, including three aces, as the host Maroons swept the Pleasant Valley Saints 3-0 (25-10, 25-11, 25-8) in North Zone Senior AA Girls Volleyball League play.

Hughes and Emily Dahl registered eight kills apiece from the power position.

Allison Hobkirk recorded seven kills from the middle, while Ray-Lee Grainger rang up five, also from the middle.

Meanwhile, the Seaton Sonics placed fourth in the 32-team Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack Classic last weekend in Kamloops.

The Sonics started strong with straight set victories over the Revelstoke Avalanche, 25-10, 25-12, Barriere Cougars, 25-8, 25-9 and NorKam Saints, 25-12, 25-12.

After placing first in their pool, Seaton took down No. 6-ranked AA George Elliott Coyotes of Lake Country 2-0 (25-18, 25-18.).

The Sonics sputtered and then got some great serving and several devastating line shots from Dana Kievit. Setter Emma Haner had a couple of huge blocks and was followed by huge kills from middles Ella Oduro and Ava Haldane.

The second set saw the Sonics firing away with a monster attack. Maddie Findlay-Proctor produced a huge kill.

“Ellen Van Buren and Kalli Hamilton-Gee were strong servers,” said Seaton coach Jeff Higgins. “Rose Harned played key minutes at the libero position and Kenzie Nieuwenhuis came in and contributed with kills from the right side.”

Seaton then defeated top-seeded A Kelowna Christian Crusaders 25-19, 25-23. After a slow start, Van Buren served eight in a row. Maddie Findlay-Proctor and Drew Barker played well in the back row.

The Sonics finished by falling 2-0 (25-17, 25-21) to the Prince George Polars and bowing 2-0 (25-19, 25-20) to the Mt. Baker Trojans of Cranbrook.
