The Jemison Lady Panthers swept the Thorsby Lady Rebels Monday night, 25-12 and 25-8.

Thorsby was first to put points on the board, but Jemison caught up and was soon off to an early lead. The second set was tied 5-5 at one point, but the Lady Panthers never lost their momentum and secured another win.

“Right now, we have some people out of position because we’re hurt,” Jemison coach Leighsa Robinson said. “We’re having to really communicate on the floor and gel well.”

While younger players stepped up for the Panthers, Thorsby senior Kendra Dawson served in place of fellow senior Holly Smith. Dawson’s performance Monday night drew praise from both coaches.

“I thought she did a good job, and the team did a good job getting the ball to their setter,” Robinson said.

The Lady Panthers were 43 for 45 from the service line with Hallie Amos, Haley Smitherman and Morgan Posey all serving 100 percent. Tanya Liveoak was 5 for 6 with 1 ace.

Emily Smithey had 9 digs; Kasie Wells racked up 6 assists, 4 kills and 2 blocks; Denton Ellison made 4 kills; Kortney Robinson had 2 blocks and a kill; and Ashley Evans had 4 digs and 2 kills.

For Thorsby, Dawson was credited with 6 assists and Desiree Evans had 5 digs.

“At times tonight we looked very good,” said Thorsby coach Ginger Williams, adding that consistency is the team’s biggest goal.

Thorsby won their junior varsity match against Jemison, 25-12 and 25-18, and the Thorsby Middle School team won two out of three games, 25-17, 21-25 and 15-12.
