The North Surry girls volleyball team continued its hot start by dropping Alleghany in straight sets Wednesday. The scores were 25-11, 25-9 and 25-16.
Our offense was in a really good rhythm tonight from start to finish, North Surry coach Shane Slate said. I especially liked the fact we only had one error each from our attackers and setters.
The host Greyhounds (4-0, 1-0 Northwest 1A/2A) hit at a .493 clip and their setters converted 45-percent their assist attempts.
Those numbers tell me we are making good decisions and getting nice balance from our hitters, Slate explained.
Kara Hodges had another double-digit assist total with 27. Morgan Bunker had a team-high 10 kills, followed by Nicole Rumplasch (7) and Courtney Campbell and Summer Robertson, who had six apiece. Both Courtney Campbell (11 of 11) and Emily Culler (eight-for-eight) served perfectly, while Sara Parker served 11-for-12.
We did not play our best perimeter defense (against) Alleghany, but tonight we picked up the majority of their shots around our blockers and converted them into offensive opportunities, Slate said.
Up next for North Surry is a non-conference clash against visiting Reagan Monday.
I am happy to see our improvement, but we have a challenging match on Monday with Reagan and we will need to fine-tune some things to be successful, Slate said.
