The Halifax County High School lady Comets volleyball team traveled to Martinsville High School on Thursday and resumed play after their second match of the double header on Oct. 5 was postponed mid set because of a power outage.

On Thursday, they won in three straight sets 25-13, 25-16 and 25-14.

The Comets had already completed their first set on Oct. 5 and began their second set before Martinsville lost power postponing the match.

The lady Comets resumed their match Thursday with hopes to receive a higher seeding in the regionals tournament they played on Tuesday.

“The girls played well, and we were able to get eyes on some players in different positions so that should be helpful in regional play,” said head coach Sunshine Martin.

Trinity Martin was a threat anytime she was able to get her hands on the ball with 10 kills in the contest.

Sarah Watts had one kill, three assists, one ace and one dig; Martin had 10 kills, six digs and five aces; Shamya Hankins had one ace, two digs, four kills and one block; Madison Barnes had one kill, seven digs and three aces; Emma Payne had one ace, six assists and one kill; Arissa Conner had five digs; Kylie Satterfield had three aces; Kate Jackson had 10 assists, nine digs, one kill and one ace; Jadyn Harlow had two aces, one kill, four assists and four digs; Katie Reaves had five digs; Sarah Vernon had two digs and one block; and Tessy Henderson had four kills, five blocks and three digs in the win.

The lady Comets traveled to Louisa County High School to compete in the first round of the regionals tournament on Tuesday.
