KAYSVILLE -- It is a tough act juggling volleyball and tennis, but Darts junior setter Kendall Sargent would not have it any other way.
On Tuesday, Sargent and her Davis High teammate, Kira Sparks, swept No. 1 doubles at the Region 1 tennis tournament. Two days later, Sargent saw the defending state 5-A champion Darts go undefeated in the first half of league play with a 25-17, 25-21, 24-26, 25-21 victory over Layton in 1 hour and 38 minutes.
"Yes, we are all alone in first place," said the 16-year-old Sargent, a two-year starter. "I'm glad we won, but we could have played better. I think we could have served and passed better and gone back to the fundamentals.
"I think we lost some of our drive after losing set 3, but we got it back in set 4," she said. "It's always nice having three hitters on the front row, and I like alternating setting with Jamie (Selleneit). It works really well."
The Darts' Camille Walker had 19 kills, two assists, nine digs and one ace; Kaylie Kamalu had 11 kills; Tanisha Langston had nine kills, two assists, 10 digs and two aces; Marissa Todd had five kills, eight digs and four aces; Sargent had 13 assists, five digs and three aces; and Selleneit had 16 assists, nine digs and one ace for two-time defending league champion Davis (24-1 overall, 5-0 league).
"It's crazy balancing the two sports and I can't imagine doing just one sport," Sargent said.
