“I was really pleased with how well the team passed in serve receive and how well they gelled on the court, after just one practice with everyone,” said Barrett.

“Our defensive specialists, Jenny, Marisol, and Aviana, really stepped up to the plate with their passing and defense to give us the opportunity to run our offense.”

The match, which was first played in 1997, was sponsored by SpaceCoastDaily.com, Space Coast Sports Promotions and the Friday Night Locker Room. All proceeds from the game will be donated to the Brevard Schools Foundation.

Steve Wilson and Orville Susong of the Friday Night Locker Room called all the action as they live streamed the game on SpaceCoastDaily.com.

“The North team defense couldn’t contain the big hitters at the net,” said Patrick.

“The North was stronger on the outside and right side with Skylar Lierse, Summer Seage and Rasheena Mansel leading the offense. Kiersten had a lot of new hitters to work with and her first time playing with them was in the match due to being out of town for the holidays. Considering that, she did a great job. Rachel Petkosh (MIHS) did a great job on defense and serve receive.”

Eastern Florida State hosted the match at the college’s Melbourne campus athletic facility, and the competition once again features a North – South format.
