Loveday loves Bryan College


Jenny Loveday, a two-time All-District 4-AAA volleyball player at Farragut High School named the area’s top setter last fall, signed scholarship papers with Bryan College of Dayton, an NAIA school of about 800 students, during a brief signing ceremony in the FHS Commons April 27. Saying his team desperately needed a setter, Bryan head coach Leo Sayles said he knew where to turn.

“I knew she was available, I had a chance to watch her during club season, and have watched her skills develop throughout the years,” Sayles said. “She’s got a lot of leadership, good hands, good court sense.” FHS volleyball head coach David Moore labeled the 18-year-old “a great competitor,” adding that Farragut’s road to the Class AAA state tournament last fall was significantly paved by Loveday’s leadership. “Being the only senior on the team, she took the leadership role to heart. She’s a hard worker, a wonderful person, and an excellent volleyball player.” As for why she chose Bryan, “It’s just a good place where I felt like I could learn, and a good opportunity to play,” the 5-foot-6 Loveday said. “And all the girls down there are great.” Seated alongside Loveday are her mother, Patricia, left, and grandmother, Betty Kinder. Standing, left to right, are FHS volleyball assistant coach Brendon Cleer, Moore, Sayles and Loveday’s brother, Chris Loveday.
