Lady Comets bounce back to beat GW

SoVaNow.com / October 08, 2012
The Halifax County High School varsity volleyball team rallied from a tough loss Tuesday, downing GW-Danville, three games to none on the road Thursday.

HCHS improved to 2-1 in the district.

The Comets won, 25-22, 25-20 and 25-19.

“Though we won the match in three straight games, GW was a formidable opponent. The GW team had a good solid base and they really utilized all of their talent. And that is something that we have not mastered yet. They played like a cohesive team and we are still struggling to come together,” said Comet coach Tiffaney White.

“We had some excellent back row play from junior Megan Puckett. Megan came into the game as a substitution but really made some great back row plays as well as some good serves. Senior back row player Cori Campbell also came off of the bench to make some good passes and excellent serves to help win the match. We still lack the focus we need to compete at a higher level as a team. We hope to solve our focus issues before we play Franklin County (tomorrow),” said White.
