When Locust Grove couldn’t accommodate, Warner Robins stepped up and did.
“Henry County schools can only play against one opponent in a play date,” explained Veterans High Coach Marlene Rogers. In this case five were scheduled – the Demonettes, Lady Warhawks, Houston County, First Presbyterian Day and the Academy of Classical Education, ACE for short – as part of a tournament they had set up Saturday.
Again, when that fell through, Warner Robins came to the rescue.
Veterans finished 2-0 on the day. (The rest of the results were unknown as of this writing, but please check back later.) The Lady Warhawks beat the host in two sets: 25-22, 25-14 and FPD in two sets: 25-18, 25-19.
Katie Reiff helped lead the offense with 17 kills. Madi Townson had eight. Sophia Lopez had 29 assists and Sydney Hudson finished with 10 aces.
The defense, Rogers said, was led by Abby Cross and Sydney Jones. Cross had 13 digs and Jones blocked three shots.
Next up is a tri-match Thursday. That’s at Northside against it and Houston County. The first serve is slated for 5 p.m.
