Burke volleyball loses three

By Allen Smith True Citizen Staff Writer

Burke County volleyball dropped to 9-11 last week after losing three straight matches. They fell to Lakeside, Cross Creek and Josey in action last week. Because of fuel conservation and school closings, the volleyball schedule is a bit up in the air. Games cancelled over the weekend and the first part of this week will have to be rescheduled.

In last week’s action, the Lady Bears lost to Lakeside 2510 and 25-10. Cashayla Sharpe, Jamika Harvey and Jasmine Roberson all recorded a pair of aces each in the matches. Harvey had four kills, Sharpe had three, and Roberson had two kills.

Against Cross Creek, the Lady Bears lost two close games 2624 and 25-19. Harvey had three aces and six kills. Brittny Jordan had a pair of aces and one block. Sharpe had one ace, three kills and a block. Yasma Lynch recorded four kills and a block.

On Thursday, Burke County hosted Hephzibah and Josey. The Lady Bears played Josey and lost 25-23 and 25-19. Roberson had a pair of aces, seven kills and a block. Harvey had three aces and four kills. Sharpe had one ace and three kills. Both Brandy Agner and LaShawn Johnson had three aces.

Power failure during the Hephzibah-Josey match canceled the rest of the matches, so Burke County and Hephzibah did not play.

Effingham County has cancelled its games with Burke County on October 6, so Burke County does not have any more home games.

Last Saturday’s trip to St. Vincents’, Tuesday’s games at Aquinas and Thursday’s games at Evans all face rescheduling. The matches at Evans this week were cancelled because of Homecoming activities. STAFF PHOTO BY Brittny Jordan returns a volley against Josey.
