HELENA–The Helena Huskies Volleyball team has gotten off to a quick start this season and delivered another impressive performance on Thursday, Sept. 14, to open area play.

Helena defeated Chelsea in straight sets 25-18, 25-18 and 25-11 to grab an early lead in the area standings.

The Huskies were led by Emma Johnson, Macy Lowery, Katie Lively and Lindy Long.

Johnson recorded 11 kills, zero errors and three blocks, Lowery finished with eight kills, Lively had 15 digs and Long recorded 13 digs.

Helena improved its overall record to 5-2 and will take on area rival Pelham on Tuesday, Sept. 19.
