The Lady Warrior varsity volleyball team took on several fierce opponents at the state finalist playdate at Marist, Saturday August 22. NC started the early morning tournament with a 2-0 win against St. Pius, resulting in the only win the Lady Warriors took home that day as they lost to Buford, Columbus, and Marist in two set matches, each.

Their usually strong front row fell short in the matches following their win against St.Pius, with their lowest recorded hitting percentage of the season against Buford High School.

Junior Jenna Woodruff led the team statistics this weekend in attacking and passing. The outside hitter continued her dominant play showcased this year again, carrying the team on her back. As for the rest of the team, the overall hitting percentage was .068, with an average of 8.4 kills per set.

Despite the off weekend, the Lady Warriors look forward and hope to learn from their failures.

“I think this weekend was more of a learning experience than anything else. It was the only time that we won’t feel the pressure of playing teams that have also won state,” said junior defensive specialist Katelynn Riner.

As serve, receive, passing and their new starting front row players progressively improve, the Lady Warriors will surely bounce back. Tonight, NC can redeem themselves as they face West Forsyth with at home.
