Martinsville falls to Comet spikers

SoVaNow.com / September 30, 2013
The Halifax County High School Comets varsity volleyball team defeated Martinsville in varsity volleyball action, three matches to none, in Thursday action.

HCHS, playing on the road, controlled the first match with a series of great power shots from the front line. Middle hitter Whitney White had several impressive spikes in the first game. The Comets dominated the first game and won with ease.

The second game was much like the first game. “Martinsville did not have any answers to our power game. They are a really “scrappy” team and they certainly hustled to make for some interesting volleys. They came out really moving their feet and making some near impossible plays. However, they had no answer for several power shots from Taylor Barnes, Gabrielle Spainhour, and Logan Redd,” wrote Comet head coach Tiffaney Bratton.

“The third game fell suit with the rest of the match. I was proud of the whole team. Everyone got to play and they managed to keep some good momentum. Everyone hustled and keep Martinsville at bay for most of the match,” she wrote.
