MCHS 3, WSN varsity 0
In an area varsity game, W.S. Neal lost 3-0.
Gracee Dixon had four combined service points in the three games along with Paige Grantham. Ashlyn Lambeth had five in the loss and Kendal Clayton led with seven. Kaitlin Hadaway chipped in two points and Lauren Boatwright had five in the loss.
“I am proud of the JV team for making a strong comeback and getting the win,” W.S. Neal Lady Eagle head coach Jeff Haney said. “We made a couple of adjustments after the first set, and the girls did a great job of executing in the last two sets. Our serves were much better in the last two sets. The varsity game was a disappointing loss. I know that players are going to have bad games, but this was a terrible time for several girls to have that bad game on the same day. On a positive note, every set got a bit closer which tells me that this team kept fighting and did not quit.”
