Tennessee Christian Preparatory School honored its two high school senior volleyball players Thursday at the last home volleyball match against Dogwood Academy from Tunnel Hill, Ga.
The Hawks won the match in four games by scores of 25-13, 25-20, 20-25 and 25-20. The Bulldogs picked up their only victory in the third game.
Logan Hall led the Hawks in service points with 18. She also added three aces, nine kills and eight digs to complete a great game. TCPS senior Bailey Burns added five kills, one ace and three digs to the Hawks’ stat boards. Hannah Chord also had a great game with 14 assists, two aces and 13 service points.
“It was good to put a win under our belts as we go into tournament play on Monday against Apostolic for a first round game” said Hawks assistant coach Sarah Caines.
The two high school senior volleyball players honored were Bailey Burns and Kaity Carter. Burns is the daughter of Terry and Brandi Burns. She has been a student at TCPS since preschool and has been on the Hawks volleyball team since seventh grade.
She is currently dual enrolled at Lee University and intends to pursue a degree in neonatal nursing.
Kaity Carter is the daughter of Scot and Susan Carter. Carter is new to TCPS this year and has been a great addition to the student body according to athletics director Leslie Bennett. She has plans to pursue a history degree at Lee University after graduation.
Hawks head volleyball coach Terry Sulzbach said of the two girls, “I am very proud of Bailey. She is a consistent player and I can always count on her to execute a play. Kaity has been a wonderful addition to the team. She came to us with very little volleyball experience but you would not be able to tell by watching her play.
“She has shown amazing dedication and determination as a first year player. Kaity stared down adversity and came out successful. I am proud to have had the opportunity to coach both of these wonderful young women.”
The Hawks finished the regular season Thursday and will travel to Maryville to play Apostolic Christian on Monday night. A win in Maryville will move them to a second-round game in the SCAA conference tournament.
