Volleyball: Beginning of Season Until Now

Geneva opened the season by going 2-2 at the Kingston Amelia Rhoades Tournamnet on August 24th. In pool play, the Panthers beat New Brockton 26-24, 26-24 and Zion Chapel 25-18, 25-22 and lost to Kinston 25-13, 25-18. They lost in the semifinals to Opp 25-18, 25-19.

Geneva improved to 4-2 on the season, downing Goshen on Monday, August 26th home 18-25, 27-29, 19-25, and Samson on Tuesday, August 27th on the road, 25-16, 25-18, 25-21.

Daydee Holt has five aces, five kills, and five digs, Chloe Nance had seven kills and five assists and Madison Johnson three aces, four kills and 12 assists. Emma Griffin had the team highs of nine kills and 10 digs. Addyson Martin and Shelby Hammock both had four kills and Hammock also had three digs. Pazley Lamb had three aces and Six digs and Camryn Sanders has two kills.

Since then, the Panthers are now 4-3 by losing to Houston Academy on September 5th in Dothan. Geneva’s rough day started from its opening serve, which went into the net. Two straight Panther hitting errors on kill attempts – one going long out of bounds, the other out of bounds on the side – gave HA a quick 3-0 lead. The Panthers closed to 12-7 off a couple of HA errors, but the Raiders ripped off 13 straight points to finish it out 25-7.

Daydee Holt’s serve

Houston Academy grabbed a quick 2-0 lead to start the second set with Nelson earning an ace on one of the points. The Raiders extended the margin to 5-1, but Geneva, in one of its better spurts on the day, came back to tie it at 6-6. An ace by Daydee Holt and a nicely placed two-hand touch shot to HA’s back end by Addyson Martin sparked Geneva.

Madison Johnson led Geneva with four assists and three kills and Chloe Nance had four kills and two assists. Emma Griffin had two kills and Holt had the lone ace. Houston Academy ended up winning in three sets, 25-7, 25-10, 25-9. 

The Panthers play Straughn next on Tuesday, September 10th at 4:00pm in Geneva.

NFHS Network season pass price increase!

This year the NFHS Network has increased the price of their year pass from $60.00 to $69.99. They have also removed the season pass as a purchase option as well, so now the only two choices you have are a month to month pass for $9.95, or an annual pass for $69.99.

But PSN has a LIMITED number of discounted annual passes available for only $55.00! This is a discount of over 20% off of the new annual price. We only have a few of these discount passes left, and when they are gone, they are gone, so stop by the Geneva City Board of Education as soon as you can if you’d like to get one.

PSN NEEDS YOU!!

Well…we need people. It might not be you, lol.

But, neither of us will know if you don’t let us know you’re interested. Starting next school year the Panther Sports Network will need game commentators, camera operators, people that can help us manage our social media, people that can write with some semblance of eloquence and grammatical correctness (for our blogging).

If you would like to be a part of what we do, click on the contact page here and drop us a line. It doesn’t pay anything unfortunately, but you do get in free to the events we cover, we usually get to mooch free concessions, and of course all of the prestige and stardom that you can hold!

And did I mention the biggest perk of all? You get to hang out with ME! A lot! More than anyone could ever want!
