Lady Comets fall to Rockets

SoVaNow.com / September 03, 2009
The HCHS varsity volleyball team dropped to 2-2 Tuesday night after losing to a tough Person County team for the second time this season.

The Comets lost, three games to none. But the Comets gained a measure of respect by playing competitively.

HCHS lost game one, 25-11; game two, 25-22, and the third game, 25-15.

HCHS finished at 70 percent with its serving, while the Comets had a 73 percent passing rate. The Comets had a 91 percent setting percentage.

HCHS had 13 service points, led by Jill Trickey with 11 service points, including four aces. Melyse Brown had four.

Brown had three kills.

Comet coach Steve Mattox said yesterday, “We played well last night. The biggest thing ... they earned (the Rockets’) respect.”

HCHS had won a game at PC, a first for the Comet program. Then, on Tuesday night, PC had to use one of their key players to help the Rockets rally.

The idea is to get tuned up for the district, and games like Person should help.

“The focus is on the district. I’d much rather play a Person County every night than play someone else,” said Mattox.

Jessie Bagbey also did a solid job of setting, while M. Brown and some of the other Comets up front did a job attacking.

HCHS goes to Bluestone tonight for another non-district match.

The HCHS jayvee volleyball team dropped a non-district match to Person County Tuesday night, two games to one.

The Comets managed to prevail in game two, 25-18, but were outscored in game one, 25-17 and the pivotal third game, 15-9.

HCHS had dealt the Rockets a loss in the team’s previous meeting.

Kelsy Williams led the Comets in service points with five, while Miyanna Ross had three and Jennifer Lacks had two.

Kate Bane led the Comets in aces with four, while White and Lacks had two apiece.

Kendall Lloyd paced the Comets in blocks with two. Lloyd and Williams had one kill apiece.
