East Coweta knocks off fourth-ranked Johns Creek

The ninth-ranked East Coweta Lady Indians volleyball team doesn’t back down against top-ranked teams.

Thursday night on the road, the Lady Indians knocked off fourth-ranked Johns Creek (25-13, 25-20).

So far this year, East Coweta is 3-1 against state-ranked teams in the Class AAAAAA poll.

“I couldn’t be happier with our [play in] our non-region schedule,” said East Coweta head coach Amber McClure. “I’m very, very pleased.”

East Coweta also beat Pinecrest (25-10, 25-22) before falling to St. Pius (25-23, 25-23), the No. 3-ranked team in Class AAA.

In its victory against Johns Creek, Jessi Bartholomew finished with 13 kills and two aces. Sydney Winters added four kills.

Sydney Mauer finished the game against Johns Creek with 17 assists.

“The stats don’t really tell the whole story,” McClure said of Johns Creek, which was coming off a big win of its own over state-ranked Walton earlier this week. “We forced them into making a lot of errort.”

Bartholomew added 9 kills in the victory against Pinecrest, and Dominique Ingram added six kills and six blocks. Savannah Freeman finished with 11 digs.

In the hard-fought battle with St. Pius, Bartholomew added 16 kills and Mauer had a team-high 20 assists.

East Coweta improves its record to 14-4 after Thursday’s games.

On Tuesday, the Lady Indians return home for Region 3-AAAAA games against Westlake and Langston Hughes.
