Falcons Win in Volleyball, Tennis
The O'Neal volleyball team stayed undefeated with a 25-20, 25-15, 25-21 win Thursday over visiting St. David's .
An injury to stater Caroline McHenry in the second game forced the Falcons to shuffle their lineup and showcase the versatility of the roster.
Katherine Kelly moved from outside hitter to middle blocker, and Katie Tighe played back row middle and KellyAnn Miller played front row right side hitter.
Falcon coach Kendall Harper said her team, now 2-0 on the season, didn't miss a beat after McHenry went down.
Alex DiMaggo had nine kills, six digs, Ellen Cowherd had five kills, Meri-Liz Faulkner had five kills and three service aces.
Overall the team had 13 service aces.
The Falcons hope to have McHenry back on Aug. 26 when they travel to play Union Pines. The Falcons (2-0) defeated the Vikings (0-3) in the season opener for both teams.
