The Coventry Middle School Volleyball teams split yesterday at home as they took on the Norton Panthers.
The 8th grade team faced the defending PTC champions and were defeated 8-25 ad 10-25. The Comets struggled with serve receive and communication and couldn’t put together a run to break Norton’s momentum. Bella Baird led the team in service points with 4. The 8th grade team is now 2-2 on the season.
The 7th grade team played well as a team and beat the Panthers 25-12 and 25-11. Brooke Mirka’s powerful top-spin serves gave the Comets 16 points in the team’s victory. Ronnie Meinen added 9 service points and Alexis Jackson had 4 service points. Mirka and Meinen led in kills at the net and Grace Hall led in digs and good passes. The 7th grade team improves to 4-0.
Next Monday, the 8th grade team will play at home in a tri-match…taking on Ravenna and Crestwood. The 7th grade will play at Ravenna. Good luck to both teams next week.
