The Farmville Central volleyball team walked away celebrating a win and its seniors on senior night Tuesday after the Jaguars defeated Beddingfield 3-1 (24-26, 25-19, 25-14 and 25-19.

The night began with FC (12-7, 6-3) recognizing its four seniors, Abby Foster, Ja'Shyra Carmon, Keyley Shackleford and Sydney Wade.

"These seniors have meant so much to this team," FC head coach Alyssa Pitts said. "They have been great captains and leaders of this team."

Pitt led the way for FC in the win, recording seven kills and a block. Foster recorded five assists and three service points, which included an ace.

The Jaguars came out flat in the first set, allowing the Bruins to earn a 9-4 lead, as FC committed error after error. They battled back late in the set, pulling within four points, 22-18. FC then got even closer, using a three-point run to make the score 22-21, but errors once again went against the Jags, allowing Beddingfield to steal the set win.

"We just didn't come ready to play (in the first set)," Pitts said. " We should have won in three, but we'll continue to work to get better."

The Jaguars then used an eight-point run to pull away late and win set two, before playing a more impressive set three.

The final set proved to once again be a battle. with both teams using big runs to keep things competitive, but the Jaguars led from beginning to end, using runs of five and three points to close out their 2-a Eastern Plains Conference opponent.

The hunt for the 2-A EPC title is over for FC after SouthWest Edgecombe clinched the regular season championship for the first time in 25 years. With just one game remaining in the regular season Pitts will work to solidify the final pieces on the court to prepare for a postseason run.

"We're just going to look back and work on those things we've struggled with throughout the season," Pitt said. "We going to focus on playing to win, rather than playing not to lose the game. We have to work on having that mentality."

FC will close out the regular season tomorrow when they travel to face North Pitt.
