The Colleton Prep Lady War Hawks had a strong showing in the PRTC Volleyball Kickoff Tournament held this past Saturday, finishing third in pool play and capturing an overall third place finish within the Bronze division.
In pool play scoring recaps, the Lady Hawks scores were Charleston Math and Science 25-19 (win) and 25-22 (loss); Orangeburg Prep 24-16 (loss) and 27-16 (loss); Branchville 26-24 (win) and 25-22 (loss); and Wade Hampton 25-19 (win) and 25-22 (win).
In bracket play, CPA defeated Hilton Head Prep in straight sets 25-17 (win) and 25-27 (win). They were eliminated following a loss in a best-of-three series against Pinewood 27-15 (loss), 25-20 (win) and 15-6 in the tie-breaker.
Against Hilton Head, Langley Harter was 8-9 serving with four kills. Haley Wilson was 8-9 serving with five aces; Weslin Jones was 7-11 serving with six aces; and Ella Nolte was 4-5 serving with two aces.
In the Pinewood match, Harter went 5-7 with three kills. Penelope Tuten was perfect in serving at 5-5 with three kills, Jones was 8-for-9 serving with four kills and four aces, Wilson was 9-10 with three aces and Natalye Kinard served a perfect game at 5-5.
“Most of our losses in pool play had to do with service errors and communication,” said Coach Ashley Finney. “Once we began bracket play, all of the earlier mistakes started to come around. This week we will be working on our serve and transitioning on working together more as a team. A lot of these girls have never played on the court together, so we are going to focus on that this week.”
