Lady Wave volleyball making positive strides

COVINGTON – The Lady Wave varsity and junior varsity squads competed in a Tuesday night quad volleyball scrimmage at the home of the Covington Lady Buccaneers.

“Overall defensively the effort was great,” said first year varsity assistant coach Jim Hardesty. “Got a little tired there towards the end which we expected because of the late start we got with them.”

“Defensively they did really good on the blocking part of it,” continued Hardesty. “We got our hands on a lot of balls. We work hard on that. Hitting wise we were a lot stronger. We got away from a lot of the tipping game they used last year.”

The first year Lady Wave husband and wife team of head coach Michelle Hardesty and husband Jim was well pleased with the team’s effort on the court.

“Their effort was spectacular,” Hardesty noted. “We watched them play a couple times last year – not that they weren’t strong, their effort wasn’t there all the time and I would say tonight ninty-five percent of the time they did a great job.”

“I would say on a scale of one to ten – I would rate that about eight-and-one-half tonight on just what we wanted out of them,” added Hardesty.

“They did a good job and actually we had a freshman out there setting for a little bit – and she did a great job,” concluded Coach Hardesty. “We have a lot of young girls that are coming up. These seniors are doing a good job bringing them up and no animosity working everybody in.”
