White House Heritage volleyball coach Brandon Niblock made perfect use of his timeouts Tuesday night at Greenbrier.
The Lady Patriots took the first set 25-17, but when his team slipped and Greenbrier took leads in the second and third sets, Niblock hit the reset button.
The strategy worked.
Heritage (5-4) regained its footing to take a 3-0 match victory over the Lady Bobcats.
“There’s no magic to it,” he said. “It just slows the game down and gives the kids a chance to reset. I looked like a timeout genius the last two sets, but that’s not how it normally works.”
Heritage responded well after both timeouts. After falling behind 16-13 in the second set, the Lady Patriots overcame a few serving errors to take a 25-21 victory.
