Bret Harte junior volleyball player Bri Simpson had one of her strongest days on the volleyball court last week. The 6-foot Simpson helped lead Bret Harte to clean sweeps over Mariposa and Argonaut.
Against Mariposa, Simpson recorded a season-high 10 kills and had four blocks. Two days later in a Mother Lode League matchup against Argonaut, Simpson had five kills in seven attempts. She tied a season-high with three serving aces and recorded one block.
“I was very proud of myself for the way I played against Mariposa,” Simpson said.
On the year, Simpson is second on the team with a total of 50 kills. She has 13 total blocks, with nine of them solo and Simpson has seven serving aces.
“I’m feeling pretty comfortable,” Simpson said. “I know that I still have a lot of room to improve, but it’s still early in the season. But I know that I can still get a lot better.”
Simpson and Bret Harte host Calaveras at 6 p.m. Thursday in Angels Camp.
