The Lady Seahawk varsity volleyball team has been playing at roughly a .500 clip, falling to Chipley and then roaring back to down Wewahitchka and West Gadsden.
On Sept. 6, at Chipley, the team fell in three sets, 13-25, 11-25 and 17-25.
But a week later, on Sept. 12 the team played at Wewa, and Allie Allie Zingarelli was a force to be reckoned with. “She left everything she had on the court to help her team bring home the won,” said coach Tara Klink.
The following day, the team faced a district doubleheader against West Gadsden, and won every set, for a double win on the books.
On Sept. 20, the Lady Hawks faced Rickards at home, and won 25-23, lost 12-25 and then came back for a 25-22 win. After losing the fourth, 21-25, Franklin County won the fifth and deciding set 15-6 to pull out the win.
On Sept. 22, the team faced district doe Chipley for the final time this season, and lost 4-25, 9-25 and 10-25.
On Friday at Altha, the varisty lost to Altha in straight sets 16-25, 12-25 and 18-25.
The junior varristy etam, which plays best to 25 in two out of three set, lost Sept. 6 to Chipley, 9-25 and 6-25.
On Sept. 12 at Wewa, the girls won the first, then lost the second, but got the win they needed in the third to have a win for the game.
On Sept. 20 at home, the JV squared off against Rickards, and won in three sets.
On Sept. 22, the JV faced Chipley for the last time during the regular season, and fell 9-20 and 20-25. “Although they played harder and fought for it in the second game we couldn't pull out the win,” said Klink. “Olivia Dutrow had an awesome game at the net, getting a kill and the game's solo block.”
On Friday at Altha, the JV played two sets and lost 19-25 and 15-25. Sophia Robertson earned three kills for her team as well as an ace and Camille Davis earned two aces. “A high number of missed serves caused us to lose this game,” said Klink.
