Lady Ads volleyballers bounce back from ACHS loss for three wins

Boucing back from a three-game loss to Class A/AA perennial state power Anderson County, the Farragut Lady Admirals finished strong last week with three match victories.

Beginning District 4-AAA action at 6 p..m. tonight, Thursday, Sept. 7, by squaring off against archrival Bearden and district foe Lenoir City at William Blount High School, Farragut’s overall record stood at 13-2 entering the week.

“We were disappointed to lose to Anderson County,” FHS head coach David Moore said of a 25-23, 21-25, 25-19 setback Tuesday, Aug. 29, at ACHS. “But we found a way to beat Karns (25-21, 25-22, also at ACHS).

“We came back and played well Thursday at Seymour,” Moore added about victories against the host Lady Eagles (25-18, 25-16) and Clinton (25-12, 25-12).

“I don’t guess you can complain too much when you’re thirteen-and-two. We’re getting there.”

Against Anderson County, top individual efforts included standout senior outside hitter Kelsey Benorden’s 14 kills, along with 10 kills and six blocks from standout junior middle hitter Amanda Mitchell.

Against Karns, top individual efforts included eight kills and two blocks from 2005 All-District 4-AAA outside hitter Eden Watts, a senior, and 14 service points, including three aces, and 13 assists from senior setter Lindsey West, also a 2005 All-district honoree.

Against Seymour, junior defensive specialist Kimbra Hoehn contributed 26 service points and four aces, while Benorden added 13 kills and four blocks.

In the victory against the CHS Lady Dragons, sophomore middle hitter Bryanna Reveiz had six blocks and three kills, while junior defensive specialist Diana Deer added four service points and two aces.

Farragut plays in the annual Choo-Choo Classic in Chattanooga Sept. 8-9.
