Volleyball teams piling up wins

The Davie volleyball teams mashed the gas pedal last week and put four matches in the win column.

The varsity won at North Davidson on Sept. 8 in Central Piedmont Conference play, improving to 2-1 in the league and beating the Black Knights for the 15th time in 16 tries. The only loss during that span came last year.

In a nonconference match at Forbush two days later, the War Eagles prevailed in four sets to push their overall record to 7-2. The scores were 25-15, 25-8, 24-26, 25-12.

Davie is off to the best start through nine matches in four years; it also opened 7-2 in 2011.

The JV remained perfect with wins over N. Davidson and Forbush. If it has ever had another 7-0 start, it happened before 1996. So this is the best seven-match start in at least 20 years.
