Belgreen volleyball wins two matches at Muscle Shoals tourney

The Belgreen varsity volleyball team finished second in its pool in a tournament at Muscle Shoals High School on Saturday before losing to Winston County 2-1 in tournament play.

Playing without injured starters Ansley Tate (outside hitter) and Kaycee Wilson (defensive specialist), the Lady Bulldogs nonetheless went 2-1 in pool play. They lost to Addison 2-0 but earned a pair of 2-1 wins over Mars Hill and East Lawrence.

Freshman middle hitter Emma Dempsey led Belgreen in Saturday’s action with 36 total kills, six aces and five blocks. Sophomore hitter Katie Dempsey added 25 kills and seven aces, and sophomore setter Autumn Bragwell recorded 69 assists and seven aces. Newcomer Kaley Chandler, an eighth-grader, finished the day with 12 kills and 14 aces.

Head coach Teresa Whitten said Tate is expected to return to action Monday, while Wilson will likely miss two to three weeks with an ankle injury. After playing at home this Monday and Thursday, the Lady Bulldogs will host their first tournament on Saturday.
