Both the W.S. Neal JV and varsity volleyball teams earned wins Tuesday at home against Flomaton to improve their records. With the win, the JV team saw their record go to 3-2 while the varsity moved to 5-5 overall.
In JV action, WSN’s JV team won 2-1. The Lady Eagles lost set one 25-21, but took set two 25-12 and set three 15-6.
Marishia Fraser had 28 service winners, including 20 aces in the win. In second set, Fraser had 17 service winners in a row including 14 straight aces.
‘The JV came out a little slow, but midway through the first set really turned it around
and just kept it going,” head coach Jason Blaney said. “I was very proud of them and how they stepped up. Marishia Fraser had a huge service night which will helped the girls out.”
In varsity action, W.S. Neal defeated Flomaton 3-1. The Lady Eagles won set one 25-20, but lost set two 26-24 to see Flomaton tie the match at 1-1.
In the third set, W.S. Neal claimed a 25-16. In the fourth set, WSN earned a 25-22 win to claim the match.
Jodi Busby had 11 service winners, eight kills, and two blocks in the win while Karissa Johnson finished with eight service winners, two aces, three kills and one block.
Dinah Samuel added eight service winners, three aces and three kills while Haleigh Dubose had four aces, 17 service winners and three kills.
“Even though we won the first set we just looked flat,” Blaney said. “We did not have energy. In the second set we were up 24 – 18 and just let up and Flomaton battled back strong to take that set from us.”
Blaney said in sets three and four, his team finally settled down and took control.
“It was a great win for us against a very good team that is very well-coached by Coach (Jessica) Green,” Blaney said. “Tiffany Robinson had a monster day for us at the net. Haleigh Dubose was very consistent at the service line. The girls are playing very well right now. Our two seniors, Jodi Busby and Tykeria Nolan, have stepped up and when needed we turn to them, which has been tremendous.”
