Pack cages CougarsPublished 9:03pm Tuesday, October 1, 2013
With the playoffs fast approaching, the Pam Pack volleyball team continued to sharpen up as it swept Southwest Edgecombe 25-8, 25-16, 25-15 on Tuesday.
“I think my girls went out and they were focused and they were ready to play,” Washington coach Kelly Slade said. “In the first game they were extremely aggressive like the way I want them to be.
“We’re just starting to focus on the playoffs. Every other word out of my mouth this week has been about the playoffs. I was really proud about how they went out and played.”
The Pam Pack (8-7, 6-2) currently sits in second place in the conference with four regular season games left to go.
Washington got another strong effort from its dynamic duo up front as junior Adriana Tyson racked up 15 kills and had one block, while senior Megan Corey added 12 kills and a block.
“Megan Corey and Adriana Tyson just had a fantastic game at the net,” Slade said. “They were great offensively, but they were also great defensively. They were just both on point today.”
Setters Alison Brantley and Ann Hunt got the duo going against the Cougars (4-13, 0-7) as they combined for 34 assists. Brantley dished out a team-high 22, while Hunt added 12.
“It helps when you have two setters like Alison Brantley and Ann Hunt that can go out and get those good sets to our hitters,” Slade said. “Alison Brantley had an amazing day. We won in three sets but she’s out there on the floor hustling harder than anybody out there and it showed today.”
The Pam Pack also got three kills each from Kaylee Jackson and Alexis Brooks.
Washington will be back in action today when it plays at Rocky Mount.
