Volleyball Falls to Ashley

Garner's varsity volleyball squad accomplished a lot over the 2012 season, however the ultimate goal came up just short as the lady Trojans dropped a 3-1 decision to Wilmington Ashley on Tuesday night inside Trojan Coliseum.

Ashley took the opening two games of the match, 25-18 and 25-21 before Garner (22-4) came storming back in the third game to eek out a 25-22 victory. But it wasn't enough as the Eagles found its stride in the fourth game to defeat Garner 25-15 and advance to the third round of the playoffs.

Kristen Powell and Ka'asha Jefferies both finished the match with double figure kills achieving 10 on the evening. Kelsey Bryan also played a huge part in the match for the lady Trojans finishing with seven of Garner's 34 kills.

Meanwhile, the lady Trojans could only manage seven service aces on the match but they were paced by Courtney Weathersbee who finished with four.

Garner concludes its season with the best record in school history and once again had the conference player of the year in Kristen Powell.
