Walker County Messenger - - Sports - By Scott Herpst

It took a lit­tle longer than ex­pected, but that elu­sive first win of the 2017 sea­son fi­nally ar­rived for the Ge­or­gia North­west­ern Lady Bob­cats this past Fri­day as they picked up a hard-fought 25-21, 25-23, 25-23 vic­tory at The Crown Col­lege in Pow­ell, Tenn.

Jamese Miller and Anna Schorle paced the of­fense with five kills apiece. Miller also had four blocks, while Schorle blocked five shots, served up two aces and col­lected three digs.

Tori Hall came through with four kills, 10 digs and an ace. Kayleigh Goff had a solid night with three kills, three aces, four digs and a block. Mor­gen Sim­mons had a team-high 13 digs to go with a kill and three aces.

Also con­tribut­ing in the win was Shanna Burk (9 digs, 5 as­sists, 1 kill), Jesse Owens (3 digs, 1 ace), Mia Clark (4 as­sists, 2 kills, 1 dig) and Kaylin Gra­ham (2 digs).

Last Mon­day, the Navyand-Sil­ver put up a fight, but ul­ti­mately fell in four sets to the Covenant Col­lege ju­nior var­sity squad, 25-16, 19-25, 25-19 and 25-22, in a match atop Look­out Moun­tain.

How­ever, the home team would stave off the rally and send the Lady Bob­cats back home with a loss.

Miller had seven kills and a block for the Lady Bob­cats. Hall fin­ished with seven digs, four kills and an ace. Schorle racked up seven kills, five digs and a block, while Goff added nine digs, two aces and a kill.

This year will fea­ture a tri­match with Pen­sacola Chris­tian Col­lege out of Florida and An­drew Col­lege from Cuth­bert, Ga., start­ing at 1 p.m.

All do­na­tions and money raised dur­ing the event will go to ben­e­fit the Mary Ellen Locher Can­cer Cen­ter of Chat­tanooga.
