Volleyball clenches perfect opening weekend

By Carolina Garcia, Staff Writer Armstrong State University women’s volleyball opened its season this past weekend with two wins when the Pirates, ranked 22nd, attended the Queens Invitational in Charlotte, North Carolina hosted by Queens University.

The Pirates began the tournament with a win against the University of Sioux Falls. After finding themselves down two games to one, the Pirates battled back and defeated the Cougars in set five with a score of 15-9. Leading the team was senior Stephanie Sfara with three service aces, 14 digs, and 18 kills.

Senior Kamryn Sherman also had 39 assists, sophomore Anna McGee delivered 11 kills, sophomore Emily Wylie had 12 kills, and sophomore Rachel Thompson added five blocks.

Sherman said, “It’s really great to see what all we can do together. I just love playing with the girls so anything I can do to help us be successful feels great.”

Next, the Pirates faced Catawba, and won the match in four sets. Sfara, Wylie, McGee, and Sherman had stellar performances once again. Sfara had 14 kills, Wylie and McGee each had 11 kills, and Sherman added 17 assists. Senior Morgan Hill added 13 digs of her own.

Armstrong takes the court next when the Pirates travel to Wingate, North Carolina for a double header with the private university Wingate University Bulldogs. The first match begins at 11 a.m. with another match against the Bulldogs at 5 p.m.
