Jackson helps VT volleyball move to 2-1
Virginia Tech volleyball has had its next four matches postponed, but that doesn’t mean Douglas High grad Talyn Jackson hasn’t made an impact thus far.
The junior setter had 32 assists in the Hokies most recent five-set win over North Carolina.
The former Douglas High standout sits with 56 assists through three games so far this season.

Sports may be on temporary hold in the western part of the United Staes, but Clarke University freshman Vaneza Diaz and company are out to a 5-1 start in the early going.
The former Douglas High forward has an assist and eight shots so far for the Pride.
Her first collegiate point couldn’t have come at a better time as her assist helped give Clarke a 3-2 overtime win over Evangel University.
