In the games against Northwest and Pickens on September 15, the Generals did not disappoint with wins in both games.  The scores in the game against Northwest were 25-19 and 25-21.  The scores in the game against Pickens were 25-6 and 25-7.   They took both games in two sets, which seems to be a common thing with our talented volleyball team; however, Northwest is the only team to have gotten the upper hand in the end the whole regular season.  Coach Cooper, who has already shown her great coaching through the Generals’ amazing record during her first year as a coach at Heritage, said that going into the game against Northwest, the game plan was to control the pace of the game from the start.  She also said that in order to win, the team would need to avoid the same mistakes they made in the previous game against Northwest.

Even though every set they played in was claimed by Heritage, the games were not just a breeze.  In order to win, the team had to stay together and stay focused during the whole game, which is much harder than imagined.  Occasionally, their opponents got small runs of two or three points, but they continued to be stopped by Heritage.  The Generals did, however, have some serving errors, but they were not enough to keep the team from stealing two wins for the day to help them add two more wins to their record.
