FHS volleyball takes control of 4-AAA

Farragut took control of the District 4-AAA volleyball race last week, winning four matches without dropping a game.

The biggest victories came Tuesday, Sept. 12, at Heritage, as the Lady Ads (27-4 overall, 6-0 in the district entering the week) whipped the HHS Lady Mountaineers (25-16, 25-18) after defeating Maryville 25-15, 26-24).

“Those were big wins, Maryville and Heritage are probably the top two [district] contenders,” FHS head coach David Moore said.

Against Maryville, senior outside hitter Kelsey Benorden had 15 kills while senior Lindsey West “maybe had one of her best matches as a setter,” Moore said. “She did a good job controlling the tempo of the game. She was a good leader on the court.”

Farragut overcame an MHS game point at 24-23, using clutch serving from Kayleigh Zavadil and Amanda Mitchell to win the final three points and claim the match.

Against Heritage, Eden Watts was “pretty efficient” according to Moore, completing six kills in seven chances. Benorden had six service aces, eight kills and 12 points. “She served extremely well,” Moore said.

Zavadil added four blocks and three kills.

Coming home to Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium Thursday, Sept. 14, FHS got to play many girls off the bench as it beat District 4-AAA foes South-Doyle (25-15, 25-7) and Sevier County (25-10, 25-12).

Against the SDHS Lady Cherokees, Kimbra Hoehn had nine points, while West led the way with 11 service points and eight assists. Mitchell had five kills and three blocks.

Combined with beating the SCHS Bearettes, “It was a night when Natalia Hayes, Ariel Lebert and Cara Gregg stepped in and played well,” Moore said.

“The experience may help us down the road.”
