FHS controls 4-AAA, beats Lady Mavericks in 4

The Lady Ads are on a winning streak. After knocking off five teams last week, Farragut’s volleyball team won a big non-district match against perennial Class A/AA power Anderson County Monday night at Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium in Farragut.

Avenging a loss earlier in the season at ACHS, the Lady Ads won this Sept. 25 showdown in four games (25-19, 25-27, 25-15, 25-22) and ran their record to 35-4 on the season entering the week, while in control of District 4-AAA at 8-0.

“We played up and down,” Farragut head coach David Moore said about the ACHS match. “It’s two schools with us and Anderson County that have created a rivalry just because we’ve both been good the last couple of years. ... It’s always been a good friendly rivalry and very good competition for both of us and hopefully makes us all better in the long run. It was a good match win. We lost to them earlier and it was good to come back and win this one.”

The fourth game see-sawed back and forth, but behind the serving of Eden Watts the Lady Ads clenched the win and match.

“It’s really good because they were one of our loses and we only have four,” senior outside hitter Kelsey Benorden said. “We came out wanting to win.”

Benorden led the team with 24 kills, three blocks and four aces. Amanda Mitchell set a new school record for blocks in a match with 17, as well as 16 kills.

Watts “served well in the third game and was able to get the team back on track,” Moore said. Watts tallied four aces and five kills.

The Lady Ads also best the Webb Spartans Sept. 18, 25-17, 25-14, 25-21. Benorden tallied 12 kills and three aces, while teammate Lindsey West has 12 assists, seven service points and three aces.

Tuesday, Sept. 19, Farragut met Lenoir City in a district match at Bearden. The Lady Ads prevailed 25-5, 25-12, 25-11. Cara Gregg led the way with six kills and Kayleigh Zavadil recorded four. Farragut also played William Blount the same night (25-11, 25-15). Watts had eight points, two aces and three kills and Mitchell tallied seven kills and six blocks.

On Thursday, Sept. 21, Farragut fought its way through four games against Maryville at FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium. The Lady Rebels took the first game, but the Lady Ads came back in the last three (20-25, 25-12, 25-22, 25-16).

West lead the team with 20 assists and 24 service points. Benorden and Mitchell each scored 17 kills and Mitchell added 14 blocks. Junior middle hitter Bryanna Reveiz added 10 blocks and five kills.

Farragut beat Heritage Thursday in four-games (25-14, 25-18, 25-27, 25-23). Mitchell had a “huge night blocking,” Moore said of her 14 blocks, along with 22 kills. Benorden tied Mitchell again in kills and Diana Deer “did a great job passing,” Moore said, adding nine service points and two aces. West recorded 32 assists.

“Just a big week for us in the district,” Moore said. “I’m extremely proud of where we’re at. We stepped it up Thursday night.”
