Hailey Thomas Hailey Thomas At the net, the offensive attack was by Tori Combs and Kenzie Stoltz.

“Combs and Stoltz both have great vertical jumping and power which helps them compete against much taller opponents. Both players are a threat,” Scott said.

The Clover defense was spearheaded by Hailey Thomas, who led in digs and serve reception. Stoltz was second.

“Hailey is a great front row player and I was hesitant to keep her in the back row as libero,” Scott explained. “But, once the switch was made two games ago, it is obvious that she needs to stay in the back row to improve our game. Haley can play any position on the floor, so it’s about deciding which area needs to improve against which opponents. The team has a lot of athleticism and have not yet peaked at their potential.”
