BALDWIN – Autumn Heighton continues to be a key senior for Baldwin’s volleyball tm this season.

The Panthers will be home on Thursday against Crossroads Charter Academy and continue to pursue a promising season.

She started her volleyball career on the JVs as a sophomore.

Heighton is a libero for the Panthers and plays back row. She made her debut as a libero last year.

“I liked it and was new to it,” she said. “You’re in the back row.”

Heighton takes pride in her bumping and digging. She also serves.

“You have to keep your eye on the ball and focus where you plan to hit it,” he said. “I can get it over the net.”

The more court time the team has the better it should get, Heighton said.
