FAIRBANKS-Last night at Joe T Court the Lathrop Malemutes took the court for the first time. Not the basketball team but the volleyball team. They had their season opener in a non-conference game against the Delta Junction Huskies.
Lathrop came out strong with 25-5 win in the opening set. Cheyenne Dibert, the sophomore set the tone with 8 kills and 8 aces to lead Lathrop.
Nadine Velasco got in on the action as well with a nice spike.
The Huskies showed some life in the second set but the Mutes were able to hold them off for a 25-16 decision in the second set.
