The Morgan County volleyball team held its annual ‘Pink Out’ night in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness on Tuesday, Aug. 31.

The Spike Dogs started out the night going toe-to-toe with Sandy Creek. They beat the Lady Patriots 25-20 in the first set and dropped the second by a score of 25-17. However, Morgan County won an exciting third set 15-11 to secure the victory over Sandy Creek.

Spike Dogs Haedyn Crumbley led the way with 11 total kills and Presley Hill had two aces. Makenzie Pitzer, Amiya Brown and Chloe Burns all had three blocks, respectively. Addy Christian and Sam Crowley each had 10 digs, while Allie Cox had 24 assists.

Morgan County then suffered its second loss of the season to Athens Academy in the final match of the night. The Lady Spartans took the first set 25-20, but the Spike Dogs fought back hard and won the second set 27-25 to make it an exciting match. Even so, Athens Academy won the third set by a score of 18-16 to secure the match victory.

Regardless of the results, the Spike Dogs raised more than $2,000 for the Morgan County Medical Center.
