Bronson, Young lead Hernando past Central
Defending district-champion and regional semifinalist Hernando opened up their volleyball season Tuesday night, thrashing Central in four games.
The Lady Leopards dropped the second game of the night 26-24 to the host Bears, but won the other three games by scores of 25-9, 25-6 and 25-8.
Led by reigning Hernando County Player of the Year, Ali Bronson, Hernando started the year off with a win, in hopes of capturing a third-straight district crown.
Bronson, now entering her Junior campaign, recorded 17 kills to go along with one ace and four digs.
Senior Carson Young was also a force last night, recording nine kills along with one block and four digs.
Hernando will look to build on that momentum Wednesday night, as they travel to rival Weeki Wachee High, in a district championship rematch.
