Lady Net Dogs Season Ends with Heartbreaking Sweet 16 Loss to ACE Charter

Lyons, GA – October 24, 2022 | Coach Terry Goodwin

The Toombs County Lady Net Dogs season ended on Saturday in a tough match-up against the Academy of Classical Education or ACE Charter in Macon on Saturday. ACE Charter won 3-2 in best-of-5 sets that could have gone either way with the set scores ending up 24-26 25-15 13-25 26-24, and 14-16. Coach Brodnax and Coach Goodwin were extremely proud of the effort and the Lady Net Dogs played with on the day.

Leaders for the Dogs on Saturday were Seniors, Zariaha Newkirk (9 service points, 4 aces, 14 digs, and 15 kills), Vivianna Rodriguez (11 service points, 5 aces, and 4 digs), Kortney Mahone (4 service points and 9 digs) and Sarah Morris (2 digs). Alayah Servin wasn’t able to play. Thank you Seniors for all you have done and the 4-peat to the Sweet 16.

Other contributors on Saturday were made by Anabel Cruz (9 service points, 5 aces, 14 assists, and 1 dig), Martasia Burton (11 assists, 1 dig, and 1 kill), Scarlett Stanley (1 Dig and 2 kills) Makayla Brewton (11 service points, 3 aces, 1 dig, and 1 kill), Makenzie Kilgore (4 service points, 2 aces, 1 block, and 2 kills), Arianna Hill (3 service points, 1 block, and 3 kills), and Anna Patrick (4 blocks, 1 assist, 1 dig, and 12 kills). Madison Brown did not play.

While the Lady Net Dogs did come up a little short on Saturday, they played with incredible passion and the coaches expressed their gratitude for the effort that was displayed throughout the year. We are going to miss our graduating Seniors, but do feel like we’ve got a great group of girls that will return next season to continue to build on what was accomplished in 2022.
