Kingman High extended its win streak to six games Tuesday with a 3-0 (25-19, 25-18, 25-9) win over El Mirage Dysart.

"The girls needed a home game again," said KHS coach Traci Rosenbach about her team being on the road for the past three weeks.

The Lady Bulldogs began their streak when they defeated Prescott Valley Bradshaw Mountain on Sept. 11. Since then, KHS has traveled to the Greenway Tournament in Phoenix, Bullhead City Mohave, El Mirage and Prescott Valley, all the while adding wins to improve to 8-3.

They're currently 18th in the Power Rankings with seven matches left.

"We are definitely right in the middle and we just have to play well for the rest of the season," Rosenbach said.

With the top 16 Division I teams making the playoffs, the Bulldogs have an opportunity to gain a couple of spots by potentially knocking off some high-ranking Division II teams in No. 2 Flagstaff and No. 5 Prescott, while possibly getting the best of Division I No. 12 Phoenix Sandra Day O'Connor in the coming weeks.

"I think it's going to be close and it's going to come down to these last few games," Rosenbach said. "It will probably come down to the last game, like it did last year."

In the meantime, Rosenbach's concerns aren't about the playoffs.

Her setter, Gabby Huffer, injured her knee in practice and is expected to be out for at least a week, maybe longer.

"We are waiting to see what the doctor says," Rosenbach said. "She is walking on it, so we are just waiting and seeing."

To fill the void, Rosenbach called up Cortney McCans from the junior varsity team. She had seven digs and 21 assists Tuesday night.

Natalie Casson moved to setter, a position she played last year.

"I can put (Casson) almost anywhere on the court and she will do a good job for me," Rosenbach said.

Casson led the Lady Bulldogs with 16 kills and 11 digs to go along with her 12 service points, which included four ace serves.

Taylor Reed added five kills and five digs.

Heather Weninger had five kills and eight service points with two aces.

Rachael Arave had four kills, four blocks and two blocks kills, Desirae Gonzalez added two kills, five blocks and two block kills and Alison Owen had 11 digs.

KHS will hit the road once again with matches at Surprise Willow Canyon today and with O'Connor and Flagstaff next week before returning home Oct. 16 to host Prescott.
