The Andrews High School varsity volleyball team swept past Georgetown 25-16, 25-12 and 25-10 on Aug. 22.

It was the first match of the regular season for the Georgetown County rivals.

“We were a little nervous but I thought we played well in big points,” Andrews Coach Jarod Soucie said. “It’s all about consistency.”

He's starting to see improvement during games on things the team works on in practice, Soucie added.

“They played very, very well first game out,” Georgetown Coach Amy Youmell-Soucie said. “We’ve got a little bit to work on, but I’m very, very happy.”

Youmell-Souice said the team struggled in the preseason, but played better against Andrews.

“We’ve definitely taken steps in the right direction,” she added.

Youmell-Souice also said she was proud of Sydney Daniels, who twice during the match alerted the referees that she had touched the ball on an Andrews shot, reversing incorrect calls that would have given Georgetown points.

The Lady Bulldogs will try and avenge the loss to the Lady Yellow Jackets on their home court on Oct. 4.

Andrews and Georgetown were the only Georgetown County teams playing on Aug. 22. Waccamaw was scheduled to open its season at Carolina Forest on Aug. 23, and Carvers Bay was scheduled to travel to Loris on Aug. 24.
