WEST POINT — After spending the greater parts of August and September on the road, the Point University volleyball team is in the midst of a six-game homestand.

The Skyhawks are scheduled to continue to play at the West Point Gym today at 1 p.m. against St. Andrews University. Any pending status of the game due to the weather was unknown as of Wednesday press time.

On Tuesday night, the Skyhawks fell to Reinhardt in three sets of 19-25, 20-25 and 18-25. The win marked No. 16 in-a-row for the Eagles, who are 20-4 overall and 11-0 in conference play. Reinhardt remained in first place in the conference’s south division, while Point sits behind the Eagles with an 8-2 conference record.

Senior tri-captain Tatianna Dale led the Skyhawks’ offensive attack with 10 kills and five total blocks. Junior tri-captain Julia Felix set 34 assists to go along with 10 digs, three kills and two blocks. Junior tri-captain Charlotte Harvisik had five kills, five digs and one ace.

Local freshman Sarah Baucham, from Columbus, had eight kills and four solo blocks in Tuesday’s match as the middle blocker. Senior Karen Souza had six kills and four digs.

On the defensive side, junior Tessa Burns had 17 digs and went 10-for-10 in service receptions. Sophomore Te’a Owens was 25-for-25 in service receptions, with five digs and three kills as well. Freshman Rachel Ellis had seven kills and went 23-for-24 in service receptions.

The Skyhawks now host third-place St. Andrews, who carry a 5-7 overall record and a 2-2 conference record into the match.

The volleyball team will also be at home this Saturday against Allen University at 11 a.m., next Tuesday against Columbiana International University at 6:30 p.m., next Wednesday against Talladega College at 6 p.m. and Friday against Truett-McConnell University at 6:30 p.m.

The Greater Valley Area Chamber of Commerce’s Junior Ambassador Committee helped spread some holiday cheer earlier this week when it passed out Valentine’s Day cards at area nursing homes. The junior ambassador committee is made up of ninth graders through twelfth graders from area high schools. Carrie Royster, marketing and events manager for the chamber, said about 45 students participate in the junior ambassadors. Local elementary school students made the Valentine’s Day cards and the junior ambassador committee took them to the assisted living and nursing homes in the area. Valentine’s Day cards were taken to LaFayette Nursing Home, LaFayette Extended Care, G.H. Lanier Nursing Home, Diversicare, Sylvia Word Manor, Lakewood Senior Living and Valley Park Manor. “I think the importance is having our youth go into the nursing homes,” Royster said. “A lot of times our youth doesn’t get that experience, and the nursing home residents absolutely love having the kids come in and getting to communicate with them.”
