BY girls volleyball

Junior Tamia Ross (6), Elizabeth Proctor (3) and Ashlyn Sheppard (14) anticipate a Reidsville return in a game earlier this season. The Bucs cruised past Morehead, 3-0 Wednesday night.

The Bartlett Yancey volleyball team seized the momentum early with a first-set win and never looked back in a 3-0 victory over Morehead Wednesday night. 

BY (4-2, 1-1 Mid-State 2A) won a thrilling first set by a score of 25-22. The Bucs made sure the second set wasn’t as close, recording a 25-18 victory before taking the final set to complete the sweep. 

Senior Lanie Ouzts paced BY's offensive efforts, recording 17 kills and junior Tamia Ross finished with six. Sophomores Lizzie Proctor and Faith Upchurch each finished with double-digit assists. 

Defensively, BY was paced by junior Emma Jones' nine digs, while junior Paige Lee chipped in with seven service aces. 

The Bucs finish off a three-game week tomorrow when they make the trip to Burlington for a conference showdown against Cummings at 6 p.m.
