Havelock falls to West Craven in Singleton's final match

Published: Thursday, October 10, 2013 at 09:17 PM.

“We got down and had a hard time getting back up,” Havelock coach Amy McCutcheon said. “We had a few spurts here and there where we would get some plays. We just weren’t consistent throughout.”

In the second set, Singleton helped serve the Rams out to an early 5-2 lead behind spikes from Frazier and Kristina Markward.

West Craven responded with five straight service winners from Sarah Manning to pull ahead 9-5. Kills from Raynor and Manning helped the Eagles close out a 25-12 victory.

“We talk about points earned versus points given by our opponent and with what we do, and I’m pretty happy with what we did as far as points we earned,” Holloway said. “I thought we did real well playing some off-speed balls, and I thought we did pretty well on our tip coverage, and the defense as a whole made me happy.”

In the third set, Holland served West Craven out to a 10-0 lead. Kills by Markward and Singleton, and four straight service winners by Brown pulled Havelock within 16-10, but Kaylee Koerperich settled the Eagles with a service winner and Gray added a kill as West Craven closed out the match, ending Singleton’s high school career.

“Our senior played her heart out,” McCutcheon said. “She got quite a few hits in and sets in. I was happy she got a lot of touches in.”

Despite Havelock missing the playoffs, Singleton said she enjoyed the year with her teammates.
