With the Central Arkansas Junior High Conference post-season tournament looming, the Bryant Lady Hornets freshman volleyball team has started to turn things around. On Thursday, they won their second match in the last three, 25-14, 27-25, over Cabot Red.
They’ll close out the regular season against Conway White on Monday, Oct. 19, then compete in the league tourney on Saturday, Oct. 24, in Benton.
Bryant’s work at the service line was particularly strong against Cabot Red’s Lady Panthers. Out of 49 serves they had just three errors. Emily Hall served up three aces while getting in all 11 of her serves. Lindsey Maxwell added two aces and had 10 serves without an error. Cassie Ray was good on 13 of 14 serves.
The Lady Hornets were nearly just as efficient at the net with just five hitting errors in 49 attacks. They had 16 kills from six different players led by Meagan Chism with five. Kristin Boyle and Faith Stone knocked down three kills each while Jenna Vos had two. Imanii Jones and Hall each had one. Stone also had four blocks and Boyle three.
Defensively, Chism led with nine digs. Alyssa Bowers came up with six and Faith New three.
