Ward shoots career best
Emerson Vanzant shot a 44 as Davie’s golf team finished third in a conference meet at Maple Chase on Sept. 27. Her 8-over score was good for eighth out of 31 players.
Sophomore Reece Ward had her best day as a War Eagle with a 50 that put her in 11th place. She birdied the par-4 No. 3 hole.
The team scores: Reagan 1-under 107, West Forsyth 122, Davie 150, Mt. Tabor 168, Reynolds 181, East Forsyth 197, Glenn 197, Parkland 198.
Volleyball falls to 4th
The gap between second and third place in the Central Piedmont Conference in volleyball is substantial.
When Davie’s varsity hosted East Forsyth on Sept. 27, second place was on the line. But it wasn’t closed. East pounded Davie 25-8, 25-10, 26-24 to end the War Eagles’ five-match winning streak. East’s second convincing win over Davie lifted it to 13-3 overall and 7-2 in the CPC.
Two days later, the War Eagles traveled to meet one of the state’s finest teams, Reagan. The Raiders rolled 25-17, 25-6, 25-10. How powerful are they? Not only are they 27-0 overall and 10-0 in the CPC, they’ve captured 73 of 74 sets, including wins over teams from Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee and Alabama. McMichael (21-2) is the only team to take a set from Reagan.
While Davie (8-7, 6-4 CPC) dropped to fourth in the CPC, it still has a shot to claim third. East Forsyth (8-2) and West Forsyth (7-3) entered the week holding the second and third spots, respectively.
Varsity soccer winless in CPC
Parkland’s varsity soccer team picked up its first CPC win by trouncing Davie 7-2 in Winston-Salem on Sept. 26. The Mustangs built a 3-0 halftime lead and improved to 2-10-2 overall and 1-5 in the league.
Davie’s goals were scored by Nick Ruff and Justin Rayas, who also had an assist.
Davie’s home game against Glenn on Sept. 28 was 0-0 at halftime, but in the second half the Bobcats (6-5-3, 3-3-1 CPC) exploded to a 5-0 win. Davie fell to 2-12, 0-6.
JV volleyball splits 2
The first time around the CPC, Davie’s JV volleyball team lost to East Forsyth and defeated Reagan. The outcomes were the opposite last week. The War Eagles beat East and lost to Reagan.
The War Eagles grabbed the last two sets to beat visiting East on Sept. 27.
“We are battling some injuries, so we struggled in the first set with a new lineup that we only practiced once,” coach Tabatha Lyons said. “We really turned it on in the second set.”
Nora Barringer, Addison Wilson and Lanah Kruger were instrumental in Davie’s third straight win.
“East has a heavy-handed outside that got shut down by big blocks from Nora, Addison and Lanah,” Lyons said. “So that gave us some energy and momentum to finish strong.”
Three weeks after beating Reagan, Davie lost to the Raiders in two sets on Sept. 29. The scores were 25-20, 25-17 as Davie slipped to 6-5 overall and 6-3 in the CPC.
JV soccer loses to Parkland, Glenn
Davie’s JV soccer team lost 5-1 at Parkland on Sept. 26. Isaiah Beaty had the goal with an assist from Bryan Reyes.
Davie dug a 3-1 halftime hole and lost 3-2 at home to Glenn on Sept. 28. Abdullah Guver and Reyes had the goals. Davie tumbled to 1-9-2 overall and 0-5-1 in the CPC.
