On Thursday, the junior varsity Lady Mustangs volleyball team left the court defeated by the Newnan Cougars. Though Coach Mindy Martin made many substitutions to rejuvenate the game, the team still fell short.

“The season is going very well and we have a very talented group,” Coach Martin said.

The first of two games the ending score was 16-25 Newnan. Ansley McCreary, sophomore, scored three consecutive points with her serve, causing Newnan to ace.

Throughout the game Coach Martin was very engaged in the game. McCreary and Peyton Holder, sophomore, dominated the second game making many key plays and giving the team hope for a third game.

“[Our strength is] Every athlete brings something valuable to the team, so there isn’t just one valuable player,” Coach Martin said.

Despite their best efforts, Ola fell short and ended the game with a score of 22-25. Jayla Jenkins, freshman, feels that the team’s digging and passing skills are their forte.

“We have to work as a team,” Coach Martin said.

After the game ended Coach Martin encouraged the team with talks about future games.

“We are a team, we do everything as a team,” Coach Martin said.
