Skipstone, which plays its home matches at Zion Baptist Church in Hampton, falls to 0-3 on the season.
Skipstone won the first game of the match 26-24, but lost the final three games 24-26, 20-25 and 23-25 for their third loss of the year. Skipstone assistant coach John Hassert was pleased with the team’s effort during the match.
“The girls played very well and have really improved since the Warrior Warm Up Tournament. We have a lot of team unity and the girls aren’t getting down,” he said. “All four games were very close; if we made some plays here and there, we could’ve won the match.”
Hassert said Rachael Conaway and Kailee Turner did a great job setting up hitters Noel Padgett and Kenzie Moody for kills and Keeley Adkisson did a great job coming off the bench.
“Keeley did a great job defensively against Grace,” said Hassert. “She made plays and kept us close all night.”
