It’s never a good thing to see an athlete suffer an injury and have to miss a match.
But it’s a good thing when teammates step up and fill that void and take care of business.
In Thursday night’s home match against Columbus North, the Brownstown Central volleyball team was without middle hitter Regan Harrison.
Doing what seniors are expected to do, Kaylee Bennett stepped into that spot and was a strong contributor — along with a few others — and the Class 3A No. 4 Braves pounded the Bull Dogs 25-13, 25-13, 25-6.
“Bennett did a really good job, and I’m really proud of her because she just started in that position two days ago,” Braves junior setter Nicole Thomas said. “She did awesome, and she really stepped up and competed and played her game.
“We had really good blocking tonight, and our coverage was always there and we were on it,” she added. “We work on our coverage a lot in practice because we focus on our defense, and we just played awesome tonight.”
