FHS volleyball stays hot, blanks CAK

Considering school size and player experience, it was a David versus Goliath volleyball match Monday in Farragut High School's Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium.

With six talented seniors leading the way, Susan Davidson's Lady Admirals improved to 37-4 Sept. 26 after defeating a Christian Academy of Knoxville team with no seniors and only three juniors (25-18, 25-13, 25-21).

Farragut senior setter Kayla Hartman had 61 assists while Lady Ads outside hitter Paige West, also a senior, added 23 spikes and 11 kills.

Senior Shannon Bohnenberger provided 19 points for FHS, which entered the week atop District 4-AAA with a perfect 10-0 record. Freshman Raegan Grooms also added 19 points.

In addition, “I thought our back row, our defensive specialists Meghan Glintenkamp and Erin Lewis, were solid in the back,” coach Davidson said.

Senior outside hitter Julia Alves put away several kills in game one before sitting out games two and three with a “very, very slight” ankle sprain, Davidson said.

Replacing Alves, “I thought Emma Milstead stepped in and did a good job,” Davidson said about the freshman.

West, All-district as a junior, said her Ads have “really come together through tough teams,” pointing to a “Chattanooga tournament” victory against state powerhouse and Lady Ads nemesis Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett.

“They had beaten us twice the past two years [sectional], keeping us from going to state,” West said. “It was good seeing them and taking them down.”

Hartman said FHS has “pulled together really well as a team ... we all have each other's backs.”

CAK fell to 25-8 despite 10 points, 10 kills and five digs from junior outside hitter Teresa Slade, named District 2-AA Player of the Year and All-state in 2010, and Lauren Peterson’s seven points, six kills and eight assists.

Slade said her Lady Warriors “could have done better, but we just kinda have a young team.”

With a win versus Class AA power Anderson County this year, Slade added that her young Lady Warriors “have come a long way.”
