Impact Scoring Run: Farmersville closes first set on 18-4 run

To open the contest, the Lady Farmers were in a close battle in the early stages of the first set.

Lady Farmer of the Game: Rendi Fetty

Farmersville had big shoes to fill coming off of last season, including the replacement of district MVP Reese Fetty. In the first game of the season, sophomore Rendi Fetty eased into her sister’s role, playing the entire game in the all-around position. Rendi was dynamic in this role, playing well at both the net and the back line while helping lead the Farmersville offense.

Farmersville returns to action this weekend, competing in a tournament at Princeton Aug. 12-14.
