D-B roars past rival South in rematch

KINGSPORT — The Dobyns-Bennett volleyball team made short work of Sullivan South on Monday evening with a 25-14, 25-17, 25-22 non-conference win.

The matchup was a contrast from last Monday when both teams fought through a five-set marathon that saw South come out on top.

What was the difference from a week ago? 

“We were a bit more focused tonight and a little more rested,” said D-B coach Wendy Baker. “The girls have prepared for it and I think it is just the tip of the iceberg as to what we can do.” 

From the first serve until midway through the third set Monday, D-B was in total control.

Taylor Henry led the way for the Lady Indians, recording 16 kills to go with 27 assists.

South attempted to gain momentum in the third set. The Lady Rebels managed to take a 21-20 lead, but D-B reeled off four straight points before taking the match.
