This week the Lady Devils volleyball team came out victorious against the Manti Lady Templars for their homecoming game, taking the win in three sets (25-17, 25-14, 25-19) on Friday, Sept. 21.
The Lady Devils had 23 kills at the net from Jessica Jones, while Kaylyn Watson added 15 and Kendall Cox spiked nine of her own. They also had eight aces as a team in the win.
Before the varsity game began, Grand County High School retired number 20 in its roster of volleyball jerseys. This number belonged to a beloved player named Taylor Jean Bryant, a freshman who passed in an unfortunate car accident on March 5, 2017.
“It’s an honor to be Taylor’s mom, thank you to GCHS, coach Melton and everyone involved in showing and displaying such a beautiful tribute to her. She will never be forgotten,” said Taylor’s mother, Kim Bryant, while retiring her jersey.
Earlier in the week, on Tuesday, Sept. 19, the Lady Devils lost their battle against the San Juan Buckaroos in four games.
The Lady Devils will face Richfield this Friday at home, with junior varsity action starting at 3 p.m. in the Grand County High School gym. They will host South Sevier on Saturday, with senior recognition as the theme of the varsity game, which is set for 3:30 p.m.
