Volleyball team competes in APS tournament

The Grady volleyball team played in an Atlanta Public School tournament on Saturday September 26th at North Atlanta High School. The team finished in 3rd place, with Therrell High School in 2nd and North Atlanta High School in 1st.

“Overall, communication and coverage was good, which is one thing we’ve been focusing on as a team,” sophomore varsity player Callie Thweatt said.

Word has passed through the team that the seeding of the tournament may not have been entirely fair. The forfeiting of one team led to an upset in the tournament’s brackets, making the honesty of tournament come into question.

“Just the way it was set up seemed a bit unconventional compared to previous hosts of the APS tournament,” senior and varsity player Jewel Smith said “Also NAHS seemed to be placed in the easiest bracket, then a team didn’t show up to the tournament.”

Grady played five teams and won four matches. The knights lost to NAHS in the semi-finals, landing them in 3rd place.

“They [NAHS] played a good game, out hustling us and picking up every ball and they won,” Smith said.

Tomorrow, the team will take on Arabia Mountain at home.
