The Comet jayvee volleyball team earned a quality win over PH-Roanoke Tuesday night.

HCHS won the match, two games to one.

The Comets dropped the first game, 25-20. But the Comets rallied with wins by scores of 25-21 and 15-12.

“It was a very important win in the district, especially after coming off the loss to William Fleming. That was kind of a shocker. “(This win) definitely got our spirits up a little bit. We had a little trouble in the first game, we got ahead, and we let them eat away at the lead. We were playing catchup the rest of the (first) game,” coach Jessica Martin said.

It was still close in the third game. But the Comets did a good job finishing, which did not happen last week against the Colonels.

Logan Redd had one ace, five good serves, four service points, two kills, six attacks and ten good sets. Laurel Jennings had three attacks.

Madison Puryear had one ace, one good serve, one service point and one kill, with 19 good sets. Brittani Boxley had five aces, 11 good serves and nine service points. Megan Nunn added one ace, four good serves, two service points and a kill, with seven good sets.

Cecile Elliott had five aces, six good serves, six service points, seven attacks and two kills, with seven good passes. Denia Rauls had two aces, two good serves, two service points, one kill, one attack and two good passes. Heather Griles had one good serve, one service point, two kills, six attacks and five good passes. Kirsten Doss had two good passes.

Lauren Womack had three good serves, one service point and three good passes, with ten good sets.

Taylor Barnes had three aces, seven good serves, five service points, three kills, five attacks, and 15 good passes.
