C.B. Aycock flew over Southern Wayne 25-15, 25-8, 25-9 in Quad County 3A Conference action on Wednesday evening.

With the win, the Golden Falcons improved their record to 11-2 overall and 5-2 in conference play, while Southern Wayne dropped to 2-7 overall and 1-4 in conference play.

“I think the girls played really well. They were on their toes, they were moving their feet, and they were communicating on the court,” C.B. Aycock head coach Jordyn McGhee said. “Very, very impressed with how they played.”

C.B. Aycock was in control from the opening serve in the first set and quickly built up a 15-7 lead.

Back-to-back kills from Gracie Hinson and Amya Smith did cut C.B. Aycock’s lead down to 15-11, but the Saints could not get any closer as C.B. Aycock used a 10-4 run to win the first set.

The Golden Falcons continued to take care of business in the second set with an ace from Gracie Mooney putting C.B. Aycock in front 13-4.

Later in the set, kills from Clara Coles and Laci Best helped C.B. Aycock finish off set two.

“The girls had fun, they had energy, and they worked together,” McGhee said. “It was one of those games that it is fun for them to win. They had fun the entire time.”

Another ace from Best gave C.B. Aycock a 9-4 lead in the third set, but the Saints battled back and won three straight points to trim C.B. Aycock’s lead down to 9-7.

However, the Golden Falcons responded a huge 16-2 run to put Southern Wayne away.

“Our warmup was good, so the girls were ready to play, and they were ready to swing,” McGhee said. “A lot of times in volleyball, a girl will stop swinging if she has a bad ball, but the girls didn’t, and they kept swinging.”

Both teams are back on the volleyball court today. C.B. Aycock hosts Hunt (11-3, 7-0) in a key Quad County 3A Conference matchup, while Southern Wayne travels to East Wake (0-11, 0-6).
