Rebel volleyballers fall to Farmville

FARMVILLE -- Emily Deibert and Jamie Vinson combined for 17 digs on defense as North Duplin fell to defending Carolina 1-A champion Farmville Central 25-19, 25-13, 27-25 on Thursday afternoon.

"We played pretty good in game one and three," Rebels coach Heather Best said. "Farmville Central is a good team and we had a problem producing hits because their coverage was so good. We had good hits, but they got returned."

Bethany Malcolm provided four kills and two blocks. Sierra Ward added two kills, three aces, three digs and four blocks.

Vinson had a kill and two blocks. Deibert contributed one kill and two aces, while Brittany Carr served three aces.

"We've got one more match before the conference tournament, so we still need to work hard to finish this season on a positive note," said Best, whose team entertains Rosewood next Tuesday.
