North Davie volleyball ‘really solid’

North Davie’s volleyball team overcame a first-set defeat and took down North Carolina Leadership Academy on the road on Sept. 9.

Two days earlier, the Wildcats buried host Canterbury in two sets. “We stunned Canterbury with strong serves and great plays at the net,” coach Trish King said.

The comeback win at NCLA – North won the last two sets 25-11, 15-13 – lifted the Wildcats to 4-1. The only loss was the second meeting with South Davie, when North was missing one starter and another starter rolled her ankle during the match.

“My team is really solid,” King said. “This is the first teams I’ve had at North where every single player has a strong overhand serve. We’re not as big as some other teams, but I have girls like Callie Jenkins, Miley Brandon and Nora Barringer who can hit it hard at the net. Mia Clemo is my only setter and is doing a great job getting the ball to my hitters.”
