Luck was not on the side of the Northview Lady Chiefs volleyball team Thursday night as the Warriors of Pensacola Catholic High School defeated them in three straight games.
The Chiefs (2-2) fell to PCHS 25-21 in the first game, 25-13 in the second game and 25-9 in the third game.
Head coach Betty Heaton said that the Lady Chiefs did not have the focus that they had shown in their previous victories.
The Lady Chiefs fought hard against the Warriors with several players putting up strong efforts.
Junior Caitlin Hall was the Northview player of the week and had three blocks, three assists and two digs in the match up with PCHS.
Heaton said Hall was chosen as player of the week because of the job she has done as a setter.
Senior Brittney Thompson led the team in aces with one and also had four blocks, three kills and six digs.
Sophomore Shawna Montgomery had six digs, one block and one kill, while her sophomore counterpart Ashley Digmon had eight digs and junior Amber McMillan had four digs.
Heaton said she reminds her girls after any game win or lose that it is already in the past and it is time to move forward.
The Lady Chiefs next game is against W.S. Neal at Northview High School Tuesday with the junior varsity beginning at 4:30 p.m. and the varsity at 6 p.m.
Northview vs. Flomaton
The Northview Lady Chiefs volleyball squad picked up their second victory of the season after they defeated the Flomaton Hurricanes three games to two on Sept. 8.
The Lady Chiefs (2-1) were led by senior Brittney Thompson (4-blocks and 9-kills) and juniors Caitlin Hall (4-aces, 11-assists and 1-block) and Angela Rodriguez (5-aces and 2-kills).
Head coach Betty Heaton said that her team’s victory was not a shock because of the way they work together in practice.
There was not one single person that put the team on their back and led, according to Heaton.
Heaton said that the win was a much deserved team effort.
