The 7-2 Morgan High Volleyball team returned from Southern Utah with first place honors at the Dixie Fly High Tournament over the weekend. The Trojans went undefeated winning six matches and only dropping two sets out of 17 for the entire tournament.
“It was great to go down and play some good teams in St. George,” head coach Liz Wiscombe said. “Going to St. George gives the girls a chance to bond on the overnight trip and to play good teams.”
“Everyone played well and played hard,” she added. “I saw a lot of improvement as they battled hard and played well together.”
Morgan opened with a 2-1 win (25-20, 22-25, 15-8) over Delta. They then swept Kanab 2-0 (26-24, 25-18) and American Leadership Academy 2-0 (25-9, 25-10). The next day they played in the Gold Bracket and defeated Spanish Fork in three games (25-10, 25-16, 25-15) before beating Millard in four (25-16, 21-25, 25-12, 25-18). In their final game of the tournament, the Trojans took down Canyon View (26-24, 25-21, 25-14) to earn first place.
Earlier in the week, Morgan hosted the Farmington Phoenix, registering their first win on the season 25-14, 25-22 and 27-25.
“It’s exciting to see our players coming together and playing well. We’ve got some good competition coming up in the next four games: Green Canyon, Ridgeline, Davis and Union,” Wiscombe said. “We’ve got to keep the gas down!”
Morgan hosted Green Canyon Tuesday and traveled to Ridgeline High School Thursday. They will play at home Sept. 6 and Sept. 7 against Davis and Union.λ
