UPDATE: PSC Volleyball team is headed to Nationals!
Potomac State volleyball has it all figured out this season, and their statistics prove it.
PSC volleyball continues their season with a 17-4 record, which is a .810 winning percentage.
The team consists of 13 players, all in either their freshman or sophomore year at PSC. Each individual player brings something valuable to the team, as they each balance each other out on the court with their strengths and weaknesses.
The team has an overall 11.08 number of kills per set, while sophomore Shayla Hillian tops the list with a total of 148 over the season. Sophomore Anya Murray comes in second with a total of 140 sets, and freshman Erika Gordon comes in third with a total of 120.
Assists per set comes in at 9.80, while freshman Bailey Godlove tops the list with a whopping total of 547, and freshman Noelle Snedon comes behind with a total of 39.
Digs per set comes in at 16.05, as freshman Makaleigh Roberts sets the bar high with 246. Freshman Ericka Gordon comes in second with a total of 162, and behind her is sophomore Sarah Lowery with 140 digs so far in the season.
Sophomore Anya Murray recalls her most memorable game this season against Catawba Valley Community College on Sept. 17.
“It was our most difficult competition so far this season, they beat us but it was a fun and exciting match,” Murray exclaims. “We put up a great fight, and I think we could have beaten them if all of our players were with us – we were missing four.” Murray also recalls their warm-up playlist as being “pretty awesome.”
The team has a “home court advantage” as they have won all seven games they’ve held at Lough Gymnasium this season. But, don’t doubt them at away games either since they have only lost one of the six total.
Teamwork plays a major role in the chemistry these girls have on the court, freshman Bailey Godlove says it’s a key component in their all-or-nothing strategy. “My team has a lot of potential behind it on the court,” Godlove says. “I feel like when the time comes we can all really come together and make it happen.”
PSC volleyball continues their season Oct. 22, in Wilmington, North Carolina against Cape Fear Community College (14-6), and Spartanburg Methodist (15-9) in a duel-game event.
