By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The West Valley Wolfpack were able to get their season back on track last night with a win over the North Pole Patriots.
The Pack got a clean sweep in this one, earning the Conference victory in three sets.
Both teams were able to break the 20-point barrier in all three sets, but the Pack were able to come away victorious every time.
They won the first 25-21, the second 25-20, and the third 25-21.
Kami Steel and Jozey Martellaro spearheaded the offensive efforts for the Wolfpack, finishing with 6 kills.
Ellen Silva led the team in blocks with 4 while Erin Pomeroy had herself a day, leading the team in assists with 13 and digs with 8.
The Patriots were led by Sidney Teel with her 10 kills and Ainsley Smith's 16 assists.
This was the first game for the Pack since their loss to Hutchison last week.
It was their first time falling to their 3A Neighbors since 2014.
Martellaro talks about how it feels now that her team is back on track.
"Once we were down in those other games, we would just get kind of down. Once we got down in these games were like, no we can't get down we have to keep the positive energy because Volleyball is all about mistakes and we know it's going to happen. We just always have to know that we're going to come back from those. It felt good honestly, I think we were a little nervous about how we were going to act and how we were going to play. But it felt really good to come out with positive energy, constantly just uplifting each other, nobody bringing each other down, no negatives. We were all there to win, we all had one goal so it made it really easy and a lot more fun to complete that goal," said Martellaro.
