Blue Ridge Early College girls varsity volleyball team slammed home the win against Haywood Christian Academy winning three straight sets on Thursday.
“They played really well and executed what we have been working on in practice,” said Volunteer Coach Jason Watson.
The Lady Bobcats established comfortable leads in all three sets on their home turf winning by at least 10 points. Watson said having that kind of lead early on allowed them to switch up their defense to something that had only been practiced the day before.
“It was a good opportunity to try it out and the girls actually ran it like champs,” he said.
The cushy leads were well earned with consistent kills and solid defense from BREC’s 8-player squad.
“Attitudes were great, but the hitting was phenomenal tonight,” said Watson. “The girls passed the ball well, which allowed our setters to feed our hitters. The sky is the limit for this team, if they continue to work as a team and have good attitudes it will be an exciting year with a lot of wins.”
BREC was scheduled to play Asheville School tonight and plays at 6 p.m. away against Swain on Aug. 27.
