The White County High School volleyball team recently competed in the Coffee County playday. The Warriorettes went 2-1 on the day and won five out of their seven sets. The Warriorettes will now set their sights on their first game of the year on Aug. 15 vs. Livingston Academy, at home, at 6 p.m.

As official practice began for fall sports teams across the state this week, the White County High School volleyball team traveled to Coffee County, on July 26, to compete in a playday.

The Warriorettes played in three matches and won two of the three matches in straight sets, losing the other match in 2-1.

The playday was set in a best 2-out-of-3 format. The     Warriorettes won their first two sets of the day against Lincoln County, winning 25-13 in the first set and 25-17 in the second set to win the match. The Warriorettes would then face off against Tullahoma. The Warriorettes would win the first set 25-4. The Warriorettes would win the second set 25-15. In the Warriorettes last match of the day, the Warriorettes would lose the match two games to one against Franklin County. The Warriorettes won the first set 25-15 but lost the next two 26-24 and 17-15. Overall, the Warriorettes went 2-1 on the day and won five out of seven sets.

Head Coach Joni Simpson-Trivette had this to say about the Warriorettes playday, “I thought our game went well today. We have a good group of girls who are enthusiastic and eager to learn. They are very coachable, and they showed that today. After moving a few players around to different positions, I thought that our hitting seemed to pick up. We still have a lot to work on with our defense and cover game, but overall I was very pleased with the way we played as a team. I thought we made a big stride forward today.”

The Warriorettes will continue their pre-season practice trying to get ready for their first match against Livingston Academy, on Aug. 15, at home. That match will start at 6 p.m. with the JV playing at 5 p.m.
