Soddy Daisy V.S. Bradley County @ Soddy Daisy🏐
On Monday August 30th, the Lady Trojans played the Bradley County Lady Bears. Our varsity only played best 2 out of 3 due to Bradley having team members out due to Covid. Our Lady Trojans sadly lost in 2 sets to the Lady Bears. Out of both sets Zoe Bratton had 5 kills along with one solo block. Addie Miller had 6 assists and 3 digs. Isabelle LaMonica and Mason Harris both had one kill, Isabelle also had 10 digs. Caroline Jenkins and Tillie Massengale both had 2 digs, Tillie also had 4 kills. Taylor Llyod had 4 digs, 2 kills, and 1 solo block. Finley Hilliard had 11 digs and 1 ace, and Melody Crawley had 5 digs. Emma Harding had 8 assists, 3 digs, and 2 aces. Sophia Blazakis had one kill and 1 dig. Taylor Llyod states, “I don’t think it was a bad game, but there is definitely room for improvement. I can’t wait for what the end of season will hold for us.” Coach Kohen had this to say about the game, “We saw Bradley over the weekend and played a very competitive match with them. However, when we saw them on Monday we did not come out with the same kind of intensity and strength that we approached them with on Saturday, so it was a little frustrating to see a different team tonight, and I know that we see them next Monday, so I am hopeful for a better show out because I know that we are a very equally matched team and we should be presenting ourselves with more intensity and power and consistency.”
