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.
