Under the Scoreboard: Harms, Berringer lead UNC

BERKELEY – Two El Dorado County volleyball stars were in action Friday night at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley as the University of North Carolina volleyball team defeated Ole Miss 3-1 in the first round of the NCAA Division I volleyball playoffs.

El Dorado High graduate Cora Harms, the Tar Heels’ sophomore setter, led her team with 31 assists, seven kills and seven digs to lead North Carolina over Ole Miss. Oak Ridge High grad Kayla Berringer registered 11 kills, one shy of her rookie season-high. Harm’s seven kills were a career high.

The win improves Carolina’s record to 25-9 overall. The Tar Heels face tournament host Cal Berkeley today in the second round at 6 p.m.

Carolina stymied the Rebels with a season-best 13 serve aces.

“It was clearly our best serving night of the season,” Carolina coach Joe Sagula said. “We struggled offensively early and I think our serving became our offense. We were fortunate to come out on top and to move forward to tomorrow.”

The Tar Heels overcame a pair of early deficits to top Ole Miss 25-20 in the first set. UNC came out of a timeout trailing 10-5 and uncorked a 7-1 run to take its first lead at 12-11. California natives Christine Vaughen and Berringer led the way with a combined seven kills. Carolina registered four serve aces and Harms posted three kills, six assists and two digs after one.

The Rebels edged Carolina 25-21 in the second behind a .222 hitting percentage. With the score knotted at 11, Ole Miss darted in front after two serve aces and didn’t look back to tie the match. Berringer, Emily McGee and Vaughen all chipped in three kills apiece to lead Carolina.

The Tar Heels registered a season-high seven serve aces to claim the third frame 25-18 over the Rebels. The Tar Heel defense limited Ole Miss to just a -.080 hitting percentage. McGee and Berringer again anchored the offense with three kills apiece.

Carolina jumped out to an 11-2 lead and never looked back to claim the third set 25-9.
