The Mount Shasta High School volleyball team defeated Weed Thursday night in Weed, 20-25, 25-19, 25-23, 25-13.
The victory moved the Bears (7-3) a half game ahead of Weed (7-4) in the Shasta Cascade League standings and a half game behind both Fall River (7-2) and Modoc (7-2).
Mount Shasta shook up the league standings Tuesday night with a 3-1 victory on their home court over league-leading Fall River.
The Bears are now scheduled to finish the SCL season against the league's two bottom teams, Burney (0-10) and Etna (1-9).
Modoc is scheduled to play Trinity (3-5) twice and Fall River.
Weed closes its season at Fall River Nov. 1.
"We have our fate in our own hands," Mount Shasta coach Greta Jones said prior to the match in Weed.
The Bears have now split their SCL matches with Weed, Modoc, and Fall River.
Jones said that even with two starters out sick Tuesday against Fall River, the Bears "played very relaxed and with teamwork."
They won it, 25-16, 22-25, 28-26, 25-20.
Katherine Holst had 22 digs and 2 aces; Sejay Sarti had 17 kills; Janelle Jaegel had 12 assists and Alex Peruzzi had 9; Tori Hansen had 7 blocks; Leah Maumasi had 4 kills, Sydney Morris 2, and Hansen 1.
During their 3-2 loss at Modoc Oct. 16, Jones said the Bears "played well, but fell apart mentally."
The match seesawed from start to finish. Mount Shasta won the opener, 25-20, lost 18-25, won 25-19, lost 16-25, and lost 12-15.
Maumasi had 7 kills, Sarti 5, Hansen 5, and Julie Ostrowski 4.
Sarti served 4 aces, Maumasi and Jaegel 3 each.
Hansen had 4 blocks, Morris 1.
In the JV match at Modoc, Mount Shasta sophomore Kelsi Pelletier made school history when she served for 25 straight points in a 25-0 game-two victory.
That propelled the Bears to a 2-1 win against a team whose only other loss was also to the Bears.
The final score was 21-25, 25-0, 15-12. Pelletier served for 3 more points in a row to start game three, increasing her streak to 28.
