The Farmville Central team relied on Savannah Whaley to perform at her best, and she delivered.
Whaley’s impressive performance of 21 kills and 18 digs led the host Jaguars to a dominant 3-0 victory against Bunn in the first round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association 2A volleyball playoffs on Saturday. The final scores were 25-19, 25-22, and 28-26.
These numbers were sufficient for a match consisting of four or five sets, but UNC-Pembroke did not require that many to fend off a determined Wildcats team.
Bunn finished the year with a record of 11 wins and 10 losses.
In the upcoming round, the Jaguars (20-4) will be on the move, heading to Midway, who were the runners-up in last year’s East regional. This year, the Raiders were victorious in the Southeastern Conference and have only been defeated by 4A and 3A teams.
