Spikers win in WVD opener

SoVaNow.com / October 01, 2012
The Halifax County High School varsity volleyball team has a key test Tuesday.

PH-Roanoke comes to town, and the Patriots are the defending Western Valley District champions. HCHS has to be at its best to spring the upset.

HCHS is now 7-4 overall, after sweeping William Fleming in its WVD opener last Thursday. Fleming was not that competitive in the match scores.

“We played William Fleming at Fleming for our district opener. The (HCHS) team came out early and played our type or style of play. The team passed the ball exceptionally well. The team was really relaxed but remained focused on beating William Fleming in our district opener. That is our style of play,” said coach Tiffaney White.

“Senior outside hitter Jordan Miller had an exceptional hitting game. I was particularly proud of the serving. Senior outside hitter Kelsy Williams had a great serving game. We hope that this momentum from a great a win over William Fleming will boost us when we face a very talented Patrick Henry High team. We are preparing for a good matchup with PH on Tuesday,” said White.

The Comets are balanced, with a variety of contributors. Jordan Miller led in kills against Fleming, while veteran Meg Bane was the leading setter. Whitney White led in blocks and Autumn McFadden in good passes.

The Comet jayvees lost to Fleming, two games to none.
