Madison Carter had 19 kills and Nicole Alford went 17-for-18 serving as No. 8 South River upset No. 1 Arundel, 3-0, in girls volleyball Wednesday.
The Falcons (4-0) won, 25-23, 25-17, 25-17.
"We came from behind early in the game," South River coach Maureen Carter said. "And every time [the Wildcats] got their game going, we stopped them."

No. 1 McDonogh 2, No. 5 Mount St. Joseph 0: The host Eagles (5-0, 3-0 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference) scored a pair of second-half goals, and the defense secured its fifth straight shutout of the season.
The match was scoreless at halftime until the Eagles broke through just under a minute into the second half. George Campbell intercepted a pass and fed Kelly Keegan, who scored.
They added the second goal less than 12 minutes later when Connor Smith's direct kick into the box pinballed to sophomore Momoh Eramuse, who drilled the ball home.
"Always right place, right time," said Eramuse, a center midfielder who kept the Gaels attack from getting into rhythm.
"He takes off a lot of pressure with the ball and he relieves a lot of pressure off the ball," McDonogh coach Steve Nichols said.
Scott MacDonald, Michael DeShields, Duey Senft and Eramuse made life easy for goalkeeper Calvin Livingston, who didn't face a shot on goal the entire game.
"I thought their back four did a very good job keeping possession of the ball," said Mount St. Joseph coach Mike St.Martin, whose squad dropped to 2-2.
The Eagles have possessed the ball well all season, Nichols said.
"This is probably the best possession team I've had in my 20 years here," he said.
McDonogh took 17 shots, but Gaels goalie Nick DeShong made seven saves.
