The team includes Mariah Aguilar, Jayla Anderson, Haley Collins, Claire Henderson, Madison Krick, Taylor Lindberg, Brittany McDonald, Makayla Nguyen, Alexis Parsley, Jessica Reese, Charli Sahr, Sarah Shepard, Abby Staton, and Jordan Tarvin.[more]

“Our first passes were better and sets looked great,” Ward said of her team’s performance on Thursday. “We just need to get more consistent with our serves.

“Taylor Lindberg had another great night serving six points with three aces,” she added.

On Monday, Lindberg had six good serves with two aces and added two kills. Sahr also contributed six good serves with three aces.

“I was pleased with our effort considering it was our first match,” Ward said. “The girls were a little nervous at first but settled into the game and relaxed toward the end. Now we know what we need to work on in practice.

Bryant White hosts Conway White on Monday, Aug. 30, at the Bryant Middle School gym.
