How to use volley in a sentence?

  1. Dan Gainor:

    This is just the latest volley in Hollywood's war against faith, rather than simply deny the divine, ‘Angel From Hell’ seeks to denigrate it. They picked 'Glee' veteran Jane Lynch, who hates conservatives, to portray a disgustingly foul and perverted ‘angel.’.

  2. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky:

    Kharkiv is a peaceful city. There are peaceful residential areas, no military facilities. Dozens of eyewitness accounts prove that this is not a single false volley, but deliberate destruction of people : the Russians knew where they were shooting, there will definitely be an international tribunal for this crime -- it's a violation of all conventions. No one in the world will forgive you for killing peaceful Ukrainian people.

  3. Polk County:

    At that moment in time, we heard another volley and a woman scream and a baby whimper.

  4. Gilles Muller:

    If I were coaching a young player I would teach them to serve and volley, 95 percent of the top 100 are not doing it so that means they never practise to prepare for a serve and volleyer coming at them. If you mix it up and throw in some serve and volley it makes the returner take more risks.

  5. Florida State Attorney Jeffrey Ashton:

    ( Todashev) went down, but Ibragim Todashev was not incapacitated. Ibragim Todashev came up again in an aggressive manner, and the officer then fired the second volley of three or four shots. Which at that point essentially incapacitated Ibragim Todashev, it would seem almost superhuman, but everything that we have learned in the investigation would show an individual who has a great deal of tolerance of pain and would more or less fight beyond it.
