Lady Rams 8th B drops pair

The Lady Rams eighth-grade “B” team played a very closely contested match against Brewer on Thursday but dropped a pair of close matches, 25-20, 25-20.

“In each game the lead passed back and forth several times,” coach Victor Pyle said. “There were several very long and exciting volleys. Unfortunately the Lady Rams fell just short of a victory.”

Outstanding players were Ashley Anderson with nine passes to the setter, seven good serves and three sets.

Destiny Bell had 17 passes, three good serves, sets and spikes.

Montana Choate, Mia Ragland and Brittany Barbee had nine passes each. Angel Beavers made 17 passes to the setter, one dig and 20 points on service.

“This was a very enjoyable game to watch,” Pyle said. “The team is continuing to show improvement every week.”
