While all that excitement was happening in the 7th grade gym, over in the main gym, 8th grade was on fire! Both Team B and A had a three game sweep Cove Lee with scores; 25-12, 25-7, and 15-11. It all started with Team B as Trinity Fly served 6 points in a row giving North a head start 9-3. Trinity Fly’s defense at the net was impressive as she had four blocks and four kills. Team B flowing in sync on the court as their passes went to Reagan Furney as she successfully set up her attackers that executed their kills. Laken Easton, Lexi Lewis, and Layloni Watson each had two kills. Elaina Herrera worked hard to make sure her passes were on point and Kaitlyn added two service points. The second set was heated as Layloni Watson began the lead with ten points served followed by Laken Easton’s ten points.
Team A kept the heat up! Hannah Jensen had unstoppable serves keeping Cove Lee on their toes as they struggled to return her 12 points earned for North. While Raylee Poff finished the first set with her six delicately placed serves to end the first set 25-7. The second set was more eventful as Raylee Poff, Macee Bradford, Hannah Jensen, and Sydni Cartwright served a combined 19 points to end a successful second set 25-13. Although the thrid set was played as a developmental play, the gym had an electricity. Fans on both sides roared as Cove Lee took a lead for the first time and forced North to take a time-out. North got focused by returning serves to gain points, while Emily Evatt and Sydni Cartwright each had kills at the net. The third set finished 19-17. Great job to all the teams!
