Piedmont volleyball coach Grace Strott continued to experiment with her lineup while the Bulldogs played in the Lincoln tournament Saturday.

Strott said Tuesday she had moved Mallory Roberts to setter, Torre Roberts to middle and Bre Green to libero during the day Saturday and like the preliminary results.

“I think we have figured out what six is going to pull it through for me,” Strott said as the Bulldogs prepared to head to Ranburne for a tri-match with their hosts and Faith Christian.

The Bulldogs opened the tournament with losses to Brooks (26-24, 25-10) and Ohatchee (25-20, 25-21) in pool play. After some shuffling, Piedmont completed its pool play matches with a 25-12, 25-8 win over St. Clair County.

In their first bracket play match, Piedmont downed Vincent 25-14, 25-13. Carbon Hill then ended Piedmont’s day with a 25-19, 25-16 victory over the Bulldogs.

For the day, middle Carlie Flowers had 26 kills, three blocks and seven service aces. Outside hitter Riesha Thompson recorded 20 kills and four digs. Torre Roberts had eight kills, 16 digs and one block. Mallory Roberts finished with 38 assists, 17 digs and two blocks. Green had seven aces, 15 digs and eight assists. Ashlynne Rivers contributed 13 digs and Jaylen Major had 11 digs.

Piedmont hosts area foe White Plains and Pleasant Valley Thursday. Piedmont will play in the Cedar Bluff tournament Saturday. The Bulldogs start next week on the road at Weaver for an area match Monday. Hokes Bluff comes to Piedmont on Sept. 17.
