Farmersville wins season opener against Bonham

by | Aug 11, 2021 | Uncategorized

Volleyball action returned yesterday to Farmersville, as the Lady Farmers opened the season at home against Bonham. Farmersville was able to capture the first win of the year, sweeping the Lady Warriors 25-9, 25-19, 25-15.

Thoughts from Coach Harold Davis

“I’m very excited for where we started,” Davis said. “I saw some good things out of each and every one of them. There are obviously some areas of improvement, but we’re excited about our development and moving forward.

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. Leading 7-5, Farmersville found its groove over Bonham, scoring eight consecutive points to put themselves up double-digits. Finishing on an 8-4 scoring run, the Lady Farmers used this early rally to set up the season-opening sweep.

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.
