Signal Mountain Volleyball 3-1 Over GPS

Thursday, August 21, 2014
The Signal Mountain volleyball team held off the visiting Bruisers 3-1 Wednesday evening.

Signal Mountain opened with a 25-19 win, but allowed GPS to take the second set 25-20. Signal then went on to finish off the match 25-14, 25-23.

Taelor Kellum led Signal Mountain with 16 Kills, 8 digs and 4 blocks. Aubrie Johnson added 12 kills. Amanda Thielges handed out 20 assists and picked up 10 digs for the Lady Eagles.

For GPS Reagan Williams, Jenna Simpson, nad Lilly Berger each had 5 kills. Williams had 14 assists and 11 digs. Courtlyn Martino had 21 digs, Simpson had 20 and Lilly Berger had 14.

Signal Mountain is now 2-0 on the season while GPS has two losses.

GPS' Coach Brock is relying on play from several freshman because of injured upperclassmen. He was excited about the defensive play he saw from Martino and Simpson and expects the struggles in these early games to strengthen his team in the long run. "We are 0-2 but have had good chances to win both matches, but poor ball control and serving has let us down at the end of some of our games," said Brock.  " You can still see the improvement each week and we are headed in the right direction," 

He and his team turn their focus to the Early Bird Tournament in Knoxville this coming weekend.

Signal Mountain will travel to Red Bank on Thursday.
