East Coweta battles back to bounce Brookwood

The East Coweta volleyball team is trying to stay focused on next week’s Area 2-AAAAAA tournament at Luella.

The Lady Indians prepared for a postseason run on Thursday with victory at home over Brookwood, dropping the first set in the best- of-five match before winning in a close contest (23-25, 25-17, 25-19, 25-17).

It was the second meeting between the two schools. East Coweta swept the first meeting early in the season.

“I think it was a really good measuring stick to see how far both teams have come,” first-year East Coweta head coach Amber McClure said.

April Schmitt led the way with 18 digs. Savannah Freeman and Jessi Bartholomew contributed 15 digs each.

Dominique Ingram had four blocks.

Offensively, Bartholomew led the way with 27 kills. Sydney Winters added 9 kills and Ingram finished with 8.

Sydney Mauer and Haylea Mannebach finished the match with three aces each.

Mannebach also added 47 assists.

East Coweta improved its record to 33-6.

The Lady Indians participate in the Walker School Playdate this weekend. East Coweta opens the region tournament as the No. 1 seed on Thursday against No. 8 seed Tri-Cities. Newnan is seeded second and will open against No. 7 Westlake.
