On Tuesday night, the WCHS Lady Pioneer JV and varsity volleyball teams traveled to Cumberland County to take on the Lady Jets.
The JV team was the first to take the court and won easily in two sets against the Lady Jets, 25-19 and 25-18.
The varsity team won a nail-biter in five sets, 28-26, 24-26, 25-23, 18-25 and 15-12.
Lady Pioneer volleyball coach Katie Rogers had this to say about the varsity’s five-set thriller against the Lady Jets.
“The varsity match was definitely a hard-fought win. Cumberland County would not let up, but we wouldn’t either. I am very proud of the way the girls hung in there and did not give up. We still made some simple mistakes that should work themselves out soon.”
Rogers added, “It is still very early in the season, and we still have a few adjustments to make. The chemistry on the court is what led us to win this one. For the most part, the girls were fired up the entire match and ultimately just loved being out on the court playing with each other.”
Ashton Whiles was dominant for the Lady Pioneer JV team at the serving position as she had six combined aces in the two sets.
The Lady Pioneers were led in the assist column by Reagan Whitlock and Whiles, who had six and three, respectively.
At the net, Marah Wanamaker was dominate as she had five kills, while teammates Tyra Wright and Megan Davis had four apiece. Wright also got it done in the block column as she had two in the game for the Lady Pioneers.
For the varsity team, Bethany Fye continued to impress at the server position as she had four aces for the Lady Pioneers. Hailey Wood, Lauren Hennessee and Emily Mikkola added two apiece.
Hennessee led the way in the assist column from the setter position as she tallied a remarkable 25 assists, while Wood contributed another 19.
Fye dominated for the Lady Pioneers at the net as she had 29 kills and three blocks in the five-set contest. Mikkola and Hope Mullican added 11 and nine kills, respectively.
