Brianna Cunningham finished with 11 service aces and 17 service points overall, and the Comets’ jayvee volleyball team opened its season with a two-game sweep of Chatham at home on Tuesday. Halifax won game one 25-15 and it finished off the sweep with a 25-10 win in game two.
Comets’ coach Jessica Martin said her team started off a little slow in both games before pulling itself together and coming out on top.
“Logan Redd (eight service points) and Brianna Cunningham had another great night serving,” said Martin.
“Our communication is improving as the girls really get used to playing with each other.”
The Comets’ jayvees came into the opener with momentum after sweeping both pre-season scrimmages last week over Heritage and Dan River.
Thursday’s scrimmage at Dan River saw the Comets win two games by 25-19 and 25-13 scores.
“We played well together,” said Martin when commenting on the Dan River scrimmage win.
“The first game started out a little rough, but I think we just had some jitters to get out.
“Lelia Conner and Logan Redd did a great job setting and Lelia, Logan, and Brianna Cunningham had a great night serving.”
