H.S. ROUNDUP: Rock Creek sweeps Pirates

McCoy leads Lions past Charlestown on Monday night

CHARLESTOWN — Susan McCoy smacked 10 kills and made two blocks to lead the Rock Creek Academy volleyball team to a 25-11, 25-22, 25-13 victory at Charlestown on Monday night.

Teammates Kylie Tincher and Marissa Weedin each spiked nine kills, while the Lions’ Holly Whitworth chipped in seven.

Also for Rock Creek, setter Katie Clapp distributed 62 assists and Brittney Page had five blocks.

Despite the victory, Lions’ coach Jennifer Brown saw a lot of things her team needs to correct.

“We are going to have to work harder. We are not passing well, nor are we playing as a team,” Brown said. “I have challenged the girls to really push themselves and to get unified. We have the toughest part of our schedule in front of us, and we won’t be successful playing like we did tonight. We did some great things at times, but let down way too much. This is a wonderful groups of girls, and I have full confidence they will turn this around.”
