Lady Comets sweep Martinsville in volleyball
SoVaNow.com / October 24, 2013The Halifax County varsity and jayvee volleyball teams swept Martinsville Tuesday, as the Comet program celebrated Senior Night.
The jayveess started the night at the Comet gym, winning in two sets. The varsity then followed with a three-set win in a match that was not very competitive.
Comet coach Tiffaney Bratton said, “Not a lot of competition, but we got some good looks ... some good passes, excellent serving.”
Senior Chris Bradshaw had excellent all-around play, while Gabby Spainhour and Whitney White also contributed. HCHS was also aggressive at the net, which is going to be a necessary element of the Comet games heading into tournament play.
Bratton added the lack of competition did not impact the Comets’ overall focus. HCHS has a game against Tunstall tonight, followed by the Piedmont district tournament next week.
Then, the really serious deal begins. HCHS will start conference play, matched up against a strong Albemarle team. The top two teams coming out of the conference competion move on to Northwest Regional play.
Bratton said it’s expected the Comets will draw Albemarle in conference action.
“They’re a very tough team, 16-1,” said Bratton.
