St. Pius X Golden Lions
Volleyball Opens Season With Four Wins
August 9th, 2014
The Lady Lions opened their title defense in fine style with a four match day full of victory. The team beat Gilmer County, Cherokee, Woodstock and Hillgrove high schools in consecutive matches today. The team was led by their captains, Molly Gunn with 43 assists and Ryan Boykin with 32 digs. In order to replace the offense they lost in state MVP Leah Hardeman, this years team is going to rely on a more varied attack. The first day of that went very well as the top three hitters were separated by only two kills. Jessica Onuorah, Kathryn Maloof and Camila Zimmerman had 22, 21 and 20 kills respectively. Clare Naughton added 14 kills of her own including 8 in the only three game match of the day against Woodstock. Aubrie Lombardo also had an outstanding debut with 10 aces to lead the team and 35 assists, she also came up big in crunch time against Woodstock. The team is next in action Saturday at Marist where they play three other defending state champions, including AAAAAA champ Walton in the opening match at 8:00 am.
