Lady Dawgs gel, beat Marbury in 4Published 9:40am Wednesday, October 2, 2013
The Holtville Lady Bulldog volleyball team pieced together the consistent and total team effort it needed to drop the Marbury Lady Bulldogs Thursday at home in four sets, 25-22, 25-7, 21-25, 25-16.
HHS volleyball coach Libby Collier, who is in her second stint in the position, said consistency, especially in serving, has been a point of emphasis in practice. And the ladies responded.
Senior Summer Horn and junior Erin Spivey led their team with 5 and 4 aces, respectively. Horn also had 3 kills.
“(I’m) very proud of the way the ladies played today,” Collier said. “They all contributed to this win and all played very hard. Our serving game has improved and continues to do so in every match that we play. We have worked very hard at being consistent with them and the hard work has paid off.”
Hayden Willis powered 7 kills through Marbury’s defense, 4 of which came in the lone set loss to keep straight-set win hopes alive for Holtville.
Junior setter Kelci Davis played consistently, garnering 20 assists in the match, giving teammates good, offensive opportunities.
Defensively, Spivey dug 10 MHS chances
Collier said she was proud of her team putting a solid performance together against Marbury. She hopes the consistency continues.
“Overall, very proud of the young ladies, the way they worked in the weight room this summer as well as at practice everyday,” she said. “It has been an adjustment for them, getting used to me and the way that I do things. But they have stepped up to the plate and have adjusted well. (I’m) looking for a strong finish to our season.”
HHS traveled to Childersburg Tuesday for an area contest.
