JV volleyball beats Mooresville

Despite missing some players for the third time this season, the Davie JV volleyball team took down visiting Mooresville in two sets on Aug. 24. It was Davie’s second win in a row.

“We’re still missing some quarantine kids,” varsity coach Amber Brandon said. “It was a big match for JV. It was the best competition we’ve had for sure. Mooresville was a solid team.”

Sophomores Hailey Johnson and Taylor Smith earned praise.

“Hailey is a good hitter and jumps really well,” Brandon said. “She is just undersized. She is having to swing this year (after playing libero as a freshman). It’s a new role for her and she’s doing a good job.

“Taylor has had to step into the libero role that Hailey had last year. She did a really good job in serve-receive. She had a couple really good passes in crucial moments. Both sets were pretty tight throughout the whole set.”
