Lady Demons struggle to stay in sync against Henry County

-A A +A

On Aug. 22, the Williamstown Lady Demons volleyball team took on the Henry County Wildcats at Williamstown High School.
The second round match proved that both teams desperately wanted a victory as the score board reflected a close race to first place.
In the end, Henry Co. won 2-0 against the Lady Demons with the first match at 25-12 and the second at 25-22.

Even with a loss, the Lady Demons are on fire. During the second match, the volleyball was in the air as the two teams went back and forth trading off the lead in almost every new set. The crowd at Williamstown was equally as in to the game as the players during their high-energy match-up.

Coach Wesley Staff, who has been the volleyball coach at Williamstown for six years, said that blocking is Williamstown’s greatest skill but they have a few more to work on.

 “Better passing and better serving could have helped us win the game and that’s what we’re going to work on during the next practice,” said Staff, “We’re trying to win every game and I hope this season will get better. We will just have to work harder.”

Ashley Marksbury, a junior at Williamstown, said that the team had some highlights but that the team is looking forward to practices next week.

“I think our highlight tonight was when we hit we actually started connecting and getting all together.” Marksbury says. “We work well as a team in the beginning, and then in the end when we start making mistakes, we fall apart every time. I hope that we can build ourselves back up so that one game doesn’t make all the games.”

Junior Julie Fryman said teamwork can make or break the team when they’re on the court.
 “I liked when our team got up and got together, I think when we work as a team and get loud we get all of our points and we score. But I think we have to work on it, we always have to work on it but I think that our team has very good teamwork,” Fryman said.

The Lady Demons will play at 7 p.m. Aug. 29 against Simon Kenton. Lady Pioneers.
