All county volleyball teams continue to fall below .500 on the season. Last week Munroe split two games, picking up a district win in the process. Both East and West Gadsden were handed losses. 


The Munroe volleyball team won game one but lost the next three in Panama City last week. Maddey Pappadakis led the team offensively with 13 kills and 21 assists, meaning she directly had a hand in 34 of the Lady Cats points. On defense the junior setter also led her team with 10 digs. Victoria Anderson added eight kills and Karleebeth Perkins finished with three service aces. 

TALLAVANA CHRISTIAN VS MUNROE: Tallavana Christian was overwhelmed by visiting Munroe last Thursday. Munroe won in three straight (25-17, 25-17, 25-13) to pick up the 2A District 1 win. Five different Munroe players had five kills each — Anderson, Katie Howell, Pappadakis, Hannah Wilde and Ramsey Higdon. Pappadakis and Wilde each tallied seven aces apiece. Pappadakis also totaled 17 assists. 

The win moved Munroe to 4-11 on the season. 

WEST GADSDEN VS PORT ST. JOE: The Panthers were completely overwhelmed by the Sharks last week, losing in three straight. Game scores were 25-5, 25-7, 25-8.

EAST GADSDEN VS FLORIDA A & M: East Gadsden gave the Rattlers two good games but lost in three straight at home last Wednesday. A close first game finished at 25-21 but lost quickly in game two 25-8. The Jaguars rallied tough in game three but succumbed 25-18.
