The Scottsboro volleyball team picked up a win over a county rival on Thursday.

Scottsboro won 25-11 in Game 1 and 25-21 in Game 2 before Pisgah won Game 3 25-12. The Wildcats closed it out with a 25-20 Game 4 win.

“That match was a microcosm of our season. We just have not played with good consistency from one set or match to the next,” Scottsboro head coach Patrick Kritner. “Pisgah played well. They have good players. We just have to be more consistent in our physical and mental effort.”

Abby Jones finished with five kills, seven blocks, 20 assists and six aces for Scottsboro while Caitlin Terrell recorded five kills, one block, five digs and four aces.

The second set their were some struggles but the girls regained momentum in the third and fourth set to make it a close game,” said NSM head coach Samantha Alsobrook. “We are finally adjusting to our new rotation since the ankle injury of our middle hitter Jasmine Higdon a week ago. The girls showed just how resilient they can be. They fought hard and that is all a coach could ask for.”
