On what Jefferson coach Mike Paul called “an electric night,” the Dragon volleyball team (9-2, 2-0) picked up two wins Thursday, beating East Hall (25-12, 25-21) and West Hall (25-3, 25-19).
Jefferson was decked out in special pink uniforms to support breast cancer awareness. During the second match against West Hall, the Jefferson marching band arrived and “added a new dimension to the atmosphere,” Paul said.
Statistical leaders for both matches were Cassie Metcalf (two aces, five kills), Amanda Daniel (four aces, three kills, 34 assists, one block), Taylor Cramsey (six aces, 16 kills, three blocks), Eden Starnes (two aces, nine kills), Sarah Wood (three aces, five kills, one assist) and Savanna Holland (two aces, eight kills, one assist, one block).
"Both of these wins were against quality teams,” Paul said.
Jefferson’s next match is Saturday at the Georgia Challenge in Marietta where it will face two AAAA teams — Kell and Lambert — in the morning pool play.
