Both of the Lady dawgs teams defeated the wildcats of Columbiana last night.  The seventh grade team gave up the first game 27-25, then won the second game easily 25-13.  The 7th graders came from behind to take the tie-breaker in a 17-15 victory.  Kailey Boyd was 100% from the line with 19 for 19.  Hannah Locks also served a great game with 12 out of 15 with 6 of those being ACES and 7 of those in a row in the tie-breaker match to help the team fight back for the win.  Teasia Purnell put away 2 KILLS and Paige Johnson also added a KILL.

The 8th grade team came out growling and took the first game 25-17.  They lost a close 23-25 second game, but battled for the tie-breaker and remained victorious with a 15-10 game to win the 2 out of 3 match – Can I get a woof woof!

Allie Tryon once again led the team with 13 out of 15 serves and 6 of those were BULLET ACES, and she also scored 2 KILLS.  Bre Jenkins also served a great game with 13 out of 14 serves.  Alyssa Craig had a stellar game with 7 out of 10 serves and 2 KILLS.  But the secret weapon of the night was Fatima Guteirrez who served 100% 9 for 9 coming off the bench to secure the win!  Way to be a team player Fatima!!!

Way to go lady dawgs!  You have one more chance to see the team in action next Thursday at home vs. West Blocton at 5.

Have a Fantastic Friday
