On Thursday, October 4, the NCOE Volleyball teams traveled to Thompsonville to face the always competitive Tigers. And again the Cards were resting Halle Everett, but the rest of the team again responded and won 25-10, 25-14.
“This team has had to adapt to different line ups and they’ve consistently responded,” Coach Melton said.
At the service line, Abby Black led with 14 points followed by Baylee Sutton with 8. Tori Karnes and Emilee Bishop each had 4. Mattie Wells added 3 and Evie Duncan 2.
At the net, Bishop had a 10 kill night and Sophie Neal added 7. Four kills each were recorded by Duncan and Kennedy Cook and Wells had one. Wells also ran the offense with 22 assists as Karnes, Neal and Bishop each had one.
The defense was balanced as Duncan and Karnes both had four digs, with 3 being recorded by Bishop, Wells and Black. Neal and Sutton had 2 digs apiece. Cook, Bishop and Duncan each had a block.
The win moved the Varsity Cards to 16-1 and 6-0 in the Conference.
The Jr. Varsity also won in 2. They had to overcome a big deficit in the first set as they trailed late 20-23. But they took the serve back and didn’t give it up, to win 25-23. The second set was close but the team didn’t trail and won 25-18.
“Again, like the Gallatin County match, the girls didn’t panic and just kept chipping away,” Black said.
