Volleyball Lady Ads claim KIL crown
FHS is 6-0 in matches while challenged only once in 12 games

The most dominant high school volleyball program in Knox County this millennium did nothing to hurt its reputation during the KIL Tournament.

Farragut rolled past six KIL opponents without losing a game to win the annual county gathering, with all six of its matches at FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 25-26.

Challenged in only one game Monday, a 25-23 win versus new rival Hardin Valley Academy in game two (matches are best two-of-three games), the Lady Admirals also beat Powell in two games before a pair of notable showdowns Tuesday.

Farragut (6-0 record) dumped perennial Class 3A power Knoxville Catholic 25-13, 25-11 and whipped then unbeaten South-Doyle 25-17, 25-17. Easy wins Tuesday came against Central (25-11, 25-9) and Christian Academy of Knoxville (25-5, 25-16).

“I think tonight we played with a little more sense of urgency, a little more consistency than we did last night,” FHS head coach David Moore said after the tournament Tuesday.

Individually, “Cara [Gregg’s] jump-serving, she jump-served extremely well last night and tonight, those were big keys,” Moore said about his standout senior outside hitter.

“She had six aces, kinda got us on a roll. Hopefully she’ll keep that consistency,” the FHS skipper added. “We need her offense, [including] hitting, but also that jump-serve is a big weapon for points also.

“Kylann [Scheidt] had a good night,” Moore said about his standout junior setter/outside hitter and University of Tennessee commitment. “She played solid all the way around, setting and blocking.

“I thought Julia [Mathes] played extremely well,” Moore added about his senior setter, a three-year starter.

“Did a good job running the offense.”

The coach said Natalia Hayes, senior middle hitter, “Really played well in the middle her last couple of games”

Farragut’s next tournament is in Chattanooga this weekend, Friday and Saturday, Sept 5-6, in the Choo Choo Tournament at East Ridge and Red Bank high schools.
