LADY EAGLES COMPLETE WINNING VOLLEYBALL SEASON

By: Gerald Doolittle

Mullins, S.C. – The Pee Dee Academy volleyball program had a very successful 2017 season at both the varsity and junior varsity level. Lorie Ann Rogers in her 21st year coached the teams to a combined 35-6 record.

Coach Rogers got great leadership from her six seniors. Anna Grace Johnson played well in her first year playing. “She picked up the game quickly and really helped out at the net,” said Coach Rogers. “She started out playing middle, but moved to outside to help with blocking and defense.”

Brooke Briley played right side and contributed in blocking. She also saw some time playing the middle. Summer Calhoun started the season as libero. “She found a place at outside,” said Coach Rogers. “She was one of our most consistent servers and a real hustler on defense; the player who would provide a verbal spark every time she came in.”

Mallory Carter returned to the team after sitting out the 2016 season because of a torn ACL. She reads the ball very well. She led or was second in most all categories, 8 kills per match and was speaking captain of the team.

The leader in team kills and blocks was Lindsay Martin. She at middle blocker was one of the strongest and hardest hitter in region play. She was very strong at defense. She averaged 10 kills per match.

Brittany Moore also returned this season after sitting out the 2016 season with a broken ankle. She was the setter and led the team in assist with 14 per match.

Other impact players for Coach Rogers were Lilly Caulder (jr), Holly Grice (jr), Katie Wilson (so), Holly Hammond (so), Maggie Jacobs (fr) and Ashley Martin (8th).

Making the All-Region team were Carter, Martin, Moore and Caulder. Carter and Martin made the SCISA North/South All Star match. Coach Rogers was named the Region Coach of the year.
