Adairsville volleyball swept at home

Posted

The Adairsville volleyball team dipped back below .500 on the season with a pair of home losses Monday.

Against East Paulding, the Tigers nearly managed to force a decisive third set but wound up coming up short in a 25-18, 27-25 loss.

Later in the evening, Adairsville faced off with Sonoraville in a Region 6-AAA contest. Although the Tigers fought hard, they ultimately fell 25-22, 25-18 to the Phoenix — who are coached by Trace Vaughn, father of Adairsville head coach Kailey Vaughn Martin.

Autumn Henderson recorded seven kills, while Kaylee Jordan (four) and Brentley Durham (three) combined for the same number in the East Paulding match. Against Sonoraville, Hannah Hollingsworth was the lone Tiger to have multiple kills. Grace Collins posted two aces in each match.

Aaliyah Applin paced the backline with 10 total digs, including seven versus the Pheonix. Jordan added five digs against Sonoraville, and Katlyn Burnett led Adairsville with six versus East Paulding. Annie McCormick handed out six assists in Monday's opener, while Lexie Childers led the way with four in the nightcap.

Adairsville (11-12, 3-5) will look to bounce back Thursday, when it hosts Dade County and Hiram in a pair of non-region matches.
