North Surry’s volleyball team kept up its unbeaten run through the Western Piedmont Athletic Conference on Thursday evening, sweeping three sets from visiting South Stokes to improve to 3-0 in league action.
The Lady Greyhounds (10-4) were seriously challenged only in the third set of their 25-16, 25-11, 27-25 victory. Although North Surry was a bit shaky in the service department, with nine errors and just six aces, it was solid in other aspects of the game, compiling 74 digs as a team and racking up 39 kills with only 12 errors.
Mikaela Johnson led the attack with a match-high 13 kills to go along with three aces and seven digs. Kaylee Freed had nine kills, followed by Martha Holt and Paige Sizemore with five each. Maggie Hawks led with 15 digs, followed by Cidney Fulk and Holt with 12 each. Dixie Fulk had 30 of her team’s 31 assists.
The Lady Hounds face a big showdown for WPAC supremacy on Tuesday evening. North Surry travels to Forbush, which has an identical season record of 10-4 and is 4-0 in league action. The Lady Hounds have not lost a conference match since October 15, 2008, but this could be their strongest challenge in some time.
