BLOUNTVILLE— Johnson County’s volleyball performance at Tri-Cities Christian on Monday was smoother than a new pair of nylon pantyhose. Several nice “runs” allowed them to “sheer” the Lady Eagles 25-17, 25-16 and 25-15.
It was the second win in two days for the Lady Longhorns. They had knocked off West Greene on Saturday in three straight sets.
Head coach Donna Poteet was proud of her team’s play. She touched on several players who stood out in the game.

“I thought our serves were the key,” said Poteet. “That got a lot of points for us. Sarah Carlton, Lexi Little and Caitlin Leonard really had their serves going and Aisia Robbins provided several kllls. Everybody that played contributed.”
The Longhorns jumped out to an early lead getting key points from Carlton, Rebecca Adams and Robbins. Midway through the match they extended their advantage at double digit sparked by some hustle plays from Eden Fenner.
“Eden got a lot of hustle points by diving for the ball and making some great saves,” said Poteet. “She’ll come out of nowhere and get balls that everyone else has given up on.”
They continued their excellent play in the second and third matches. They knocked off TCC by nine in the second set and 10 in the final one.
Adams’ play stood out during those two matches. She provided several key assists after hammering home 12 against Unicoi County on Thursday. Faith Poteet stepped up big and so did Carleton and Robbins. Lily Osborne also had a pair of key plays.”
