“The girls played together and worked as a team,” Prestonsburg Coach Bobby Hackworth commented. “Alexandera Goble averaged about six blocks a game and played the net with about five kills per game. Kirstin Raines averaged about three blocks and four kills per game and Allison Hall averaged about six kills a game, hitting it very hard. Olivia Lowe did a great job of finding the open spaces on the floor and setting. Sara Boyd did a great job of digging and setting. Taylor Meade came off the bench and gave us a spark with her serves. She averaged about two aces per game and the other teams had a difficult time of digging her ball.”
