Northampton completes sweep

Northampton County High School – East finished last week undefeated on the volleyball court.

Alexus Shoulders had three aces against Southeast Halifax.

The Lady Eagles defeated KIPP Pride to begin the week, the downed non-conference foe Rocky Mount Prep in straight sets before beating Southeast Halifax in the same manner.

Against Rocky Mount Prep, East scored an easy victory by counts of 25-13, 25-11 and 25-20.

“We did most of our damage at the service line led by senior Brandi Keeter,” Rams’ Head Coach David Hasty said.

Keeter recorded five aces for Northampton-East. Senior Patrice Williams added three aces to go along with two kills and orchestrated an 11-point run in the second game during her serve. She also had a key block.

Last Thursday, the Lady Rams finished the unbeaten week by topping Tar-Roanoke Conference foe Southeast Halifax 25-17, 25-7 and 27-25.

Northampton was paced by Williams and sophomore Bianca Anderson. Williams had five kills while Anderson recorded four.

Junior Marendy Cannon added to the offense with two kills.

On the serving end, it was Cannon, Keeter and junior Alexus Shoulders who recorded three aces each.

The Lady Rams are back in action today (Thursday) as they travel to league rival Gates County High School.
