The Walker Valley varsity volleyball Lady Mustangs followed the lead of the junior varsity and made quick work of Rhea County Thursday in “The Stable.”
Judy Pruett’s JV powered by the Lady Eagles 25-15 and 25-7. Bristol Snider ended the night with 10 service points and Taylor Pruett finished with six service points for the Lady Mustangs.
“Our junior varsity played a real good match tonight. They played solid,” said Pruett.
The Lady Mustangs’ varsity stayed with the program in the three games that ensued, sweeping Rhea by scores of 25-10, 25-6 and 25-16.
“The varsity played two really good games then I switched it up and put our libero (Madison Akins) on the front row which I normally don’t do,” Pruett explained. “We were a little mixed up in the third game but we still came out and played well.”
Caitlin Geren paced Walker Valley in the assist column with 22 and powered 16 service points with five aces to go with a block and four kills. Kayla Sewell followed up with 15 service points, five kills, and four blocks. Karis Terpstra ended with 10 service points, an ace, five kills, and one assist. Madison Akins had 12 digs, six service points with one ace and three kills. Leslie Still finished the night for the Lady Mustangs with four kills.
“The girls are playing pretty decent right now. Saturday, we go to the Early Bird tournament at Farragut and Oak Ridge. There will be some good teams there,” said Pruett. It will be a good tournament.
The Lady Mustangs will face Girls Preparatory School, Anderson County and Webb as well as Baylor and Cleveland.
