WHS Volleyball Sweeps Spartans PDF Print

The Watuaga High volleyball team knocked off South Caldwell in a three-game sweep at Lentz-Eggers Gym Thursday night.

 

The win keeps WHS (16-7 overall; 9-1 Northwestern 3A/4A Conference) in a first-place tie with St. Stephens in the NW3A/4A Conference standings. The Pioneers defeated South Caldwell in three games: 25-10, 25-12, 25-14. The Indians (9-1 in league play) defeated Fred T. Foard 3-1 and eliminated the Tigers (8-3 and in third place in the  conference) from the conference race.
"We just overpowered them," said WHS coach Kris Hagaman. "And we're still in the running to win the conference championship. We just have to focus on our next game, and then we'll worry about St. Stephens."
The Pioneers travel to Hibriten Monday before they return home to play the Indians Wednesday on Senior Night in the regular-season finale. But win or lose, the Pioneers have sewn up the No.1 seed among the class 4A schools in conference play.
WHS will open the playoffs at home next Saturday, October 22 against a wild card team. The Pioneers have made it to the Class 4A sectional finals the last five years. Kristen Carter backboned WHS in Thursday's win against South Caldwell. She had 30 assists. Channing Hagaman and Colby Combs each had 11 kills; Hannah Stewart had nine kills, 11 digs and nine service aces; Anna Church had nine digs and Skylar Hicks had 16 digs.
WHS won the JV game in two games by identical 25-11 scores. Whitney Dunnigan had 11 assists and four kills; Kiersten McClannon had four aces and five kills; Andrea Foster had four aces and Meredith Farthing had four kills.

WHS CROSS COUNTRY TUNES UP FOR SATURDAY

 

The Watauga High men's and women's cross country teams basically used Wednesday's United Way Invitational as a tune up for Saturday's Mile Stat Invitational in Richmond, Va.
WHS coach Randy McDonough kept his top runners out of the championship races. Instead, those runners competed in the men's and women's development races. And the Pioneers had strong showings in both events.
"I told you we would mix some things up," said McDonough. "We wanted to keep our top runners fresh for the race in Virginia on Saturday. Virginia is light years ahead of North Carolina when it comes to distance running. It will be a great chance for us to test ourselves against what will primarily be a Virginia-domianted race."
The Pioneers will be one of two schools from North Carolina competing in Saturday's invitational. In Wednesday's race on the women's side, Darby Middlebrook led the way winning the race in 18:47.72. The Pioneers had the top four finishers in the race and six runners among the top ten finishers. Hannah Barbour was second (19:11.68), Madison Harman finished third (19:55.72), Hailey Middlebrook finished fourth (20:01.42). Team-wise, the Pioneers bested the field with 18 points; T.C. Roberson finished a distant second with 40 points.
On the men's side, the Pioneers had three of the top four runners. They were led by Peter Vandenber, who won the men's development race in 16:20.48. Josh Anderson was third (17:11.61) and Andrew Vandenberg finished fourth (17:15.21). Team-wise, T.C. Roberson won the race with 35 points, but WHS finished second with 45 points.
Bryan Brackney finished 35th (17:23.74) in the men's championship race; Anna Schultz-Coulon finished 30th (20:58.83)  in the women's championship race.
