UNION — The past week has been a mixed bag for the Sims Middle School Volleyball Team which played three games, winning one and losing two.
In a statement released Tuesday morning, Coach Tracy Duncan said that the Lady Tigers ” lost their match against Florence Chapel last night three games to one. The girls started off sluggish, but pulled off the first game with a win, but could not come back to win games two and three.”
Duncan said that “Jessica Dawkins had a nice serve, as well as some nice digs and plays by Taylor Austin, and Zoe Hunt. Cortney Hicks hustled throughout the game. There were a lot of good things we did, and I am proud of them, but it just wasn’t enough to win the match.”
With their loss to Florence Chapel, the Lady Tigers are now 2-2 in the Peachtree Conference.
Duncan that in prior matches on Wednesday and Monday of the preceding week, the Lady Tigers lost to Boiling Springs and beat McCracken.
“I feel like we have a lot of confidence, and have some real talent,” Duncan said. “We will continue to work on our weak points of serving and passing as a team.”
Up next for the Lady Tigers is a game at Carver on Monday, Sept. 25 at 4:30 p.m. The team’s schedule also includes games on the following dates against the following teams:
