After four weeks on the road, Volleyball returned home last night for a conference match with Louisburg College. The Trojans took all three sets from the Hurricanes making them 2-1 in conference play.
FTCC vs. Louisburg College (W, 3-0)
Hannah Spexarth (Fayetteville, NC) started out hot for the Trojans and never slowed down with 11 kills on the night. She ended set one with a kill for the final point to push the energy for the Trojans into set two.
Set two started off with a service ace by Jaqueline Woosley (Fayetteville, NC), followed by two blocks by Sonjai Guiles (Georgetown, SC) that were assisted by Sydney Conklin (Fayetteville, NC) and Eternitie Denton (Fayetteville, NC). Spexarth continued on offense with three kills in a row for the Trojans. Some miscommunication put the Hurricanes back in the game within one point. Guiles changes the direction of the game with a big kill to put the Trojans back on track. Louisburg calls a timeout after a kill from Morgan Brady (Fayetteville, NC) at 20 points. The timeout didn’t stop the Trojans from finishing set two with another kill from Brady, a service ace by Destinee Harriott (Fayetteville, NC) and a kill from Spexarth. Guiles ends set two with one of her three blocks on the night.
The Trojans took set three and ran with it, scoring five points before the Hurricanes got on the board. The set started with kills by Denton and Spexarth, a block by Guiles and a service ace by Spexarth to get the crowd hyped up for the rest of the game. The Trojans had some big plays by Aliyah Brown (Fayetteville, NC) to make a running save, a smart tip by Jaqueline Woosley (Fayetteville, NC) and some more kills by Brady and Rion Caldwell (Florence, SC). The game ended by a final kill by Spexarth.
The offense was led by Spexarth with 11 kills and Brady with 9 kills. Olivia Johnson (Wilmington, NC) had 2 service aces against the Hurricanes.
