AYCOCKHIGHSCHOOL• VOLLEYBALL Charles B. Aycock senior Arlanda Faulkner, who holds the program's single-season and career kill records, serves during a match last season. The Golden Falcons lost key components to graduation and will find their path to the postseason more challenging this fall since league foes D.H. Conley and J.H. Rose have dropped to 3-A. News-Argus file photo By JUSTIN HAYES jhayes@newsargus.com PIKEVILLE — It's 9 a.m.on a Tuesday,and Charles B.Aycock vol- leyball coach Tangela Faulkner — "Coach T",to members of her pass- and-block brood —is trying to moti- vate her troupe for a warmup routine it knows cold. "Wait a second,"Hannah Carter says."I'm trying to find my happy place." The group breaks up,including Faulkner,into the type of laughter that lasts only as long as it should. There's muchwork to be done,after all,and before the echo-rings of Carter's quip can lurch into a fit, they disappear altogether. Then the lady Blues begin moving. Really moving. At first,there is drill and rotation work,things like pass-and-run, extended passing and later,some- thing called first-ball kill — but they have to earn their way to that stage. • Part two of the morning is now underway,and a couple ofnotions are apparent —one,Aycock is ahead of the game as a unit,and two,it's Coach T who has penned the script. She is equal parts judge,jury and point-giver,and doesn't mind at all holding her unit to the same perfor- mance scale that earned her All- American honors during her time at the University of Mount Olive. No breaks. No shortcuts. No excuses. "You know I'm not going to take it easy on you,"Faulkner says with a laugh,right before firing a point- blank dart in the general area of Cassandra Lassiter,the outfit's all- everything and record-setting libero. The bullet,part of a terror-ride drill called Texas Tough —is the first of many,and in typical fashion,No.7 Quick burst of laughter fades ■Much work awaits the Golden Falcons on the volley- ball court this season.
