The Johnson County volleyball team is finding wins hard to come by, yet they’re gaining some valuable experience this season. That was the case in their past two matches with Sullivan North and Sullivan Central.
The freshman team played well in their win over the Golden Raiders. They dominated both sets 25-8 and 25-9.

The team got some great play from their leading hitters, Channie Herman and Margaret Morrow.

Kaylee Witteburg had a solid all around game as did the back line of Hannah Osborne and Lindsey Wills.
Kelly Dugger, Reme Morrow and Maddie Icenhour all picked up several points on their serves.

The junior varsity dropped a close contest to North with Courtney Brooks and Shannoa Greene leading the way.
The team had a tough time against Sullivan Central on Monday but did manage to put up double-digit points during the varsity sets.
Head coach Donna Poteet touched on her team’s play.
“It’s hard because we are playing against older girls with lots of experience,” said Poteet. “We’re scoring points but not enough.”
