Habersham headlines volleyball success around area
The Habersham Central Lady Raiders are off to a blazing start to the 2019 season, as evidenced by the flawless 11-0 record and #1-state ranking according to MaxPreps. The girls headline the local volleyball scene, but they’re not alone. Let’s see how the local programs are faring so far.
Dawson County is 9-8 overall and started out 5-0 right out of the gate. After four straight losses, the Lady Tigers got back on track Tuesday night with a split.
The Lady Raiders are #1 in the state, and 11-0 overall. Lindsay Herrin’s group is phenomenal, and is led by such talent as reigning BLITZ Player of the Week Alexandra Shalikashvili and Sydney Brookshire.
At 12-3 overall, the #6-ranked Lady Dragons are having another great year. Impressively, the girls are 5-0 in true away games, and 9-2 in all games away from home. Jefferson has won eight of its last nine and recently had a seven-match win streak.
14-9 is Lumpkin’s record to date. That’s really good and momentum is swinging in the right direction with a Tuesday night sweep over Chestatee and Flowery Branch.
The Lady Cats are 5-10, and are actually still in the top-10 in Class A/AA according to AJC’s latest poll. Three straight losses have dampened the record, but Rabun has proven it’s a legitimate playoff team each year.
The Lady Indians are off to a 3-8 start overall, and a win Tuesday night over Prince Avenue Christian might be just what they needed to get back on track.
Tallulah Falls is 6-8 overall, and are ranked in the top-10 among 1A private schools. They had a four-game win streak before dropping six consecutive. This team is too good to get down about that, as the Lady Indians will assuredly rise back up any day now.
The Lady Panthers are 3-8 overall and are looking to get back in the win column after two straight losses.
White County is 3-4. The Lady Warriors fell in a tough one, 2-1, to North Hall. However, a rebound win over West Hall gives the girls plenty to be excited about.
