Even at its worst, Foard was the best.
The Lady Tigers volleyball team (8-3, 3-1) earned another Northwestern Conference volleyball victory in decisive fashion at home Thursday against Hibriten, 25-13, 25-12, 25-7.
In spite of the victory, Foard coach Alison Yount was not pleased with her teamâ€™s efforts.
â€śThe score doesnâ€™t look like we played bad, but in my opinion, we played pretty poorly,â€ť Yount said. â€śWe worked hard in the third game and played a lot better than we did in the first two games. Our heads just werenâ€™t in the gameâ€ť
Leading the charge for the Lady Tigers was Brooke Robinson, who had eight kills and three aces.
â€śI was proud of Brooke for her hits,â€ť Yount said. â€śSheâ€™s come a long way. Sheâ€™s learned to play the net really well. Sheâ€™s even doing a good job serving and trying to play back row some.â€ť
Up next for Foard is an important match against Newton-Conover at Statesville High School on Saturday.
The game pits Yount against her former mentor and coach Linda Richards.
â€śThat is going to be a big match,â€ť Yount said. â€śI know those girls are good. Iâ€™ve seen them play. I know they are good. It is going to be tough. Hopefully, going in with a win, we can keep the ball rolling and put up a good effort against them on Saturday.â€ťView more articles in:
