Girls Volleyball

Week in Review

Varsity VB beats Homewood, Tuscaloosa County, Hartselle, Guntersville, Huntsville and Grissom. Varsity VB lost to Montgomery Academy, Blessed Trinity (twice), Hazel Green and Huntsville. The record from the past week was 7-5 and our overall season record is 11-5.

Week in Review

Three key wins for the Lady Warriors came by beating Tuscaloosa County on the road, beating Hartselle, who beat us soundly the last 2 seasons, and then beating Huntsville in three sets in their gym. The road to the State Tourney goes through many good teams in the North Region and earning a win over Huntsville gives the Lady Warriors confidence. Outstanding offensive performance for Thompson was outside hitter Mikayla Touhey, who led the way with 112 kills, which is an average of four kills per set. Jaila Williams had 39 aces and 79 digs and setter Kirsten Boyd handed out 278 assists.

This Week

Varsity and junior varsity plays host Huffman and Shelby County on Thursday in a tri-match. Junior varsity travels to Muscle Shoals for a tournament on Saturday and the freshman team plays at Huffman on Wednesday.

Coach Speak

“This past week was a grueling one for our team as we played 11 matches in four days, but we wanted to be tested both physically and mentally. And we responded well. I feel like we continue to grow. We are learning how to compete point for point with good teams and are learning to embrace that mentality. As long as we keep focused on our growth as a team I feel like we will continue to evolve. It's a fun group to coach that is for sure. It was also very positive to get our first Area 5 win on the road at Tuscaloosa County.” – Head coach Judy Green.
