Amber Morrow and Megan Haytack had an opportunity to represent Navarre in the Subway All-Star Volleyball Game Tuesday night.
That in itself is a big deal. The deal was made even bigger by the fact that they were able to play in their home gym.
Normally played at the University of West Florida Fieldhouse, a scheduling conflict with a men’s basketball game forced the Pensacola Sports Association to move its annual event to a different location. That was just fine with Morrow, who helped the East top the West in four games.
“I really liked the idea of getting to play in our own gym. I saw that as an advantage because we didn’t have to get used to it,” Morrow said. “It was a fun time. We weren’t worried about winning. We just enjoyed playing together as a team.”
But the East did prevail, winning 25-16, 25-18, 25-17 and 25-21 over the West. The game features seniors from Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton and Escambia county schools.
“It was good. We all worked hard and played together well,” Morrow said. “It was a good team win for us.”
