Comet volleyball still unbeaten / September 14, 2017
Halifax County High School varsity volleyball improved to 3-0 after sweeping GW-Danville 3-0 in Danville Tuesday.

The Comets started the best of five match with some good controlled hits and plays to win the first game.

The Comets breezed by GW to win the first game of the match with ease.

“GW didn’t really pose a threat to us but we tried to focus on playing our game. We tend to play like our opponents and that hinders us in the bigger games. I was proud to see that we played our game for the most part and controlled the ball on our side of the net,” said Comet coach Tiffaney Bratton.

Halifax rolled through game two. Rose Spainhour led the comets and served all 25 points to win the second game by a score of 25-1.

“Rose is a seasoned player and an even more seasoned server. Her serves are hard and precise,” said Bratton.

GW never got traction with passing the ball effectively to return Spainhour’s hard serve.

The Comets won the game 25-1.

The third and final game of the match was much of the same. The Comets started with some good serves and some good passing.

“We know that to win we have to control the ball on our side of the net no matter what our opponents throw at us. The girls made some good decisions and made some smart plays to place the ball in good spots,” said Bratton.

The Comets won the final game 25-11.
