KG Foxes volleyball end season in a flurry

Although the Foxes volleyball team will not be featured in post-season play this season, they have proven prosperity is just around the corner.
Most recently, the host Foxes varsity team gave their fans a proper season ending by defeating James Monroe (23-25, 25-17, 25-8, 25-14). The win improved their final season record to 7-13, 3-11). 


Senior Lea Howard ended her high school volleyball career on a high note by recording 25 assists, four aces, and three digs. Senior Amber Smith finished with 11 kills, five blocks, and five digs. Senior multi-athlete Carley Armentrout added 10 kills and nine digs, while fellow senior Madi Park compiled eight digs and two aces. Senior Jessica Swenson contributed five kills from her front row position.
On Tuesday, at King George High School, the Foxes fell to number one Battlefield District seed Courtland. Both varsity and junior varsity teams became victims of the Cougar volleyball machine.

Courtland vs. KG (JV)
Although the Foxes junior varsity team (13-6, 8-5) narrowly failed to qualify for post-season play, they wanted to fulfill a personal quest by defeating Courtland. The Cougars were the only team in the district this season that they failed to defeat.
In light of off-season competitive activities, such as travel volleyball, the Foxes will be stronger, and more experienced next season.

Varsity Game one
After trailing the Cougars 5-1 at the start of the game, the Foxes cut Courtland’s lead to one (5-4) from a Cougar passing error, and kills by Micala Peterson, and Amber Breeden.
Moments later, Cougar Payton Massey sparked a 10-1 run with a thundering kill that was followed by seven Fox passing errors and two additional Cougar kills.
In the face of a 15-5 Cougar lead, the Foxes managed to break double digits by forcing two passing errors, a kill by Sally Owen, and an ace by Abigail Davis.
However the Cougar 21-12 lead proved to be insurmountable; the game was closed out with three Fox passing errors and a kill by Madison Southerland. The final score was 25-12.

Varsity Game two
In spite of a see-saw battle that featured two ties (3-3, 4-4) in the early stages of the game, the Cougars found their familiar scoring rhythm to take a 7-4 lead.
Although the Foxes bravely fought back to cut the Cougar lead to 9-8, with kills by Owen, Andrea Wine and Abigail Davis, Courtland quickly responded with a 4-0 run.
Midway into the game, as the Foxes struggled to sustain a consistent scoring pattern, Courtland feasted on a series of Fox passing errors for a 18-10 lead.
Precariously hanging on by a point, the Foxes scrapped away at the Cougar lead to cut it to 24-20. Ultimately, Southerland scored the final point, to give the Cougars a 25-20 win.

Varsity Game two
With their backs up against the wall, and trailing 8-4 in game three, the Foxes rallied with a 8-4 run to take a 12-11 lead. The Cougars responded with a 6-0 run to retake the lead (17-12).
Although the Foxes managed to cut the Cougar lead to 20-18, on four passing errors and two kills, it proved to be too little too late. Courtland managed to match the Foxes point for point, before closing the game (25-21) out with two kills in a row.
