Shawnee - Free State High's volleyball team went 2-0 on Friday in volleyball at Shawnee Mission Northwest.

The Firebirds defeated SM South, 25-21, 25-9, and SM Northwest, 25-21, 25-4.

Brooke Carter converted 18 serves in a row at one point for the Firebirds, 8-2 overall and 5-0 in Sunflower League play.

"It started a little sluggish. We came on very strong at the end," Free State coach Nancy Hopkins said. "In the first game of each match, the score was really close - the second game the score was lopsided. I am not sure exactly what that means."
