Volleyball in three-way tie for second

Published 1:45 pm Tuesday, October 17, 2023

Davie’s varsity volleyball team stumbled twice when it was felt like it should have won – the War Eagles lost 3-2 to East Forsyth on Aug. 31 before settling that score in 3-0 fashion on Sept. 26, and they lost 3-2 to West Forsyth on Oct. 5 after beating the Titans 3-1 on Sept. 12 – but they managed to finish in the top two for the sixth time in seven seasons.

After finishing in a tie for third in 2022, the War Eagles closed the regular season in a three-way tie for runner-up – thanks to easy wins over Parkland and Glenn last week along with East’s 3-1 triumph over West.

Reagan swept the Central Piedmont Conference to the tune of 14-0. Davie, East and West shared second at 10-4, followed by Reynolds (6-8), Glenn (3-11), Mt. Tabor (3-11) and Parkland (0-14).

The CPC Tournament began Monday and a drawing for the second, third and fourth seeds was held over the weekend.

The War Eagles routed Parkland 25-7, 25-8, 25-3 in Winston-Salem on Oct. 10. Two days later at home, they did the same to Glenn, rolling 25-10, 25-7, 25-4. It was Senior Night for Lauren O’Connor, Mikaylah Hutton, Malia Privett, Caroline Lakey and Hailey Johnson.

Davie (14-6 overall) long ago cemented the ninth winning season in coach Amber Brandon’s nine-year tenure as head coach.
