The Lady Seahawks varsity volleyball team continued its winning ways last week, triumphing twice over West Gadsden, once over Rickards and FAMU, and losing to South Walton

The week got underway at West Gadsden Sept. 19, when the varsity swept both games of a double header, each in three straight games. The team won 25-5, 25-15 and 25- 16, and then in the nightcap, won 25-11, 25-9 and 25-12.

“With this team being our easiest competition, we were able to try some different combinations and let the girls try different position,” said coach Tara Klink, who shares coaching duties with Hilary Stanton. “ It was fun to explore different possibilities! Morgan Mock led the team with eight aces in a single game, followed closely by Scout Segree with seven.”

In a district game at South Walton on Sept. 24, both the junior varsity and varsity squads were unable to win a game.

The JV fell 11-25 and 20-25, while the varsity lost 16-25, 12-25 and 19-25. “South Walton has proven to be our toughest competition in our district for both JV and varsity,” said Klink.

At Rickards on Sept. 25, the JV lost a close one, falling 20-25 and then coming back to win 25-21 before losing the rubber game, 13-15.

“This was a hard loss for us in overtime, especially when we were capable of getting the win,” said Klink. “We will definitely work harder to be ready for the next time we meet.”
