KG volleyball looks good so far as opener nears

Is this the year of the Foxes’ varsity volleyball team?  
With the regular season starting in a few weeks, the team is shifting into high gear.  

Middle blocker Sha’Tiva Harvey’s spikes and blocks, as well as Lauren Howard’s digs, saves, passes and aces are spearheading the offense. If they can continue at their early season pace, the Foxes are showing signs they have the ability to reshape the balance of Fredericksburg-area volleyball.

On Aug. 19, the Foxes rallied from a two-game deficit to defeat triple-A power Riverbend, 21-25, 20-25, 25-18, 25-22, 15-11.

Two days later at King George Middle School, the Foxes dispensed of Conference 22 rival Culpeper in five straight games.

Game one vs. Blue Devils
After bolting to a 4-1 lead, courtesy of Culpeper passing errors, the Foxes upped their advantage with an ace by Howard and two more Blue Devil miscues. Behind 7-2, the Blue Devils responded with a 5-3 run. With their defense settling down, Culpeper continued to pressure the Foxes into passing errors.

At the midway point, the Blue Devils cut the Foxes’ lead to 15-12, but Harvey broke the visitors’ spirit with four kills. Unable to sustain its momentum, Culpeper’s defense eventually folded with three passing errors, giving the Foxes a 25-16 win.

Game two vs. Blue Devils
The Blue Devils appeared re-energized after bolting to a 4-0 lead. However, Howard’s serving helped the Foxes to 21 consecutive points, including five aces by Howard. Mackenzie Miniuk and Harvey combined for seven kills as the Foxes won 25-7.

Game three vs. Blue Devils
Culpeper finally made a match of it as on nine occasions a tie occurred between the teams. During the final stages of the game, the Blue Devils became their own worst enemies by committing four passing errors, two net violations, and one serving error to fall 25-19.

Game four vs. Blue Devils
Harvey dominated Culpeper’s front and middle rows with forced passing errors and kills. Behind 10-4 and with Culpeper’s top player, Daisy Dinkens, temporarily out of the lineup, the Blue Devils’ inability to score with kills became evident. Although the Blue Devils cut the lead to 17-13, Culpeper never could take the lead, eventually falling 25-17.

Game five vs. Blue Devils

Although the return of Dinkens helped result in four ties, the Foxes sealed Culpeper’s fate with a Howard underhand kill. The final score was 15-12.

Final Fox stats: Howard, 7 aces, 6 digs; Miniuk, 4 aces, 12 kills, five digs; Abbey Davis, 2 aces, 32 assists; Harvey, 8 kills, 1 block; Madi Koban, 5 kills, and four digs.
