Lady Tigers pounced back into action for another win for both the junior varsity and varsity teams as they traveled to Otterville Tuesday night. Junior Varsity took charge winning 25-16, 25-8. Miley Hayes brought her solid serving skills to the line and finished with 5 aces. Macy Reed and Mallory Reed led the offense with 2 kills each and Zakiyah Morse led the way defensively with 4 digs. In the Varsity match Lady Tigers were laser-focused from the service line with 3 players serving aces for a total 15 points: Nevaeh Washington (6 aces), Kayley Goodman (5 aces) and Matti Mergen (4 aces). Strong serving in volleyball often means lots of free balls back and that meams lots of opportunities for offense and Lady Tigers were putting the ball away! Nevaeh again led the way with 11 kills and Kelsey Buxton made her presence known with 8 kills. Kayley Goodman was in hunt as well with 7 kills. Setters Matti Mergen and Sydney Gordon found their hitters. Sydney dished 13 assists and Matti added 11. Topping off the hot offense, Kayley Goodman made some spectacular digs to keep the ball alive and finished with a total of 9 digs. Fun night of volleyball! Lady Tigers retun to action Thursday night taking on Smithton on the home court in The Ridge.

JV Tigers lost 4-25, 19-25 with Grace Warner adding 3 kills, Mikensey Divorss 5 aces, Miley Hayes 5 assists, and Anna Stillfield and Abby Warner each had 2 digs. The Varsity Tigers fired up the offense led by Kayley Goodman with 14 kills. Losing in 4 sets (22-25, 25-21, 18-25, 14-25) the Tigers made it an exciting night of volleyball taking charge in the second set. Adding to the offense Matti Mergen and Kelsey Buxton each had 5 kills and Neveah Washington added 4 kills. But everyone knows an offense needs some defense to get going and Lexi Van Brocklin led the charge covering the court for 10 digs. Mergen and Washington followed Van Brocklin's lead with each of them making 8 digs and Goodman had 5 digs of her own. Mergen dished out 18 assists and Sydney Gordon pushed for 8 assists off of the hot defensive game. Buxton and Gordon then served for 3 aces a piece and Washington got 2 aces. A great way to finish a full week of volleyball! Varsity Tigers will return to the court next Tuesday taking on Tipton in The Ridge.

Coach Doane has some exciting things to say about girls golf! "Yesterday, we had a conference match at Triple Creek Golf Course in Cole Camp. Ashlee Martin shot her season best and finished 2nd overall for the night. Abbey continues to improve each match and I am very proud of her. It is always important to be playing your best golf towards the end of the season and I am excited to see these girls get one more week of prep in before the District Tournament." ⛳ GR8 job!

The cross country team traveled to Hermitage this morning. Despite the massive hill the Tigers had to climb, today was filled with season records(SR), personal records(PR), and course records(CR). For those unfamiliar, SRs are the fastest time for that season for each runner, PRs are the fastest they have ever finished a race, and CRs are their fastest time at that meet. The high school runners ran 3.1 miles while the junior high runners ran 2 miles. Here are their times. High School Eric Thomas-22:59 (SR/CR) Isaac Townsend-23:22 (PR) Savannah Nilson- 27:44 (SR/CR) Junior High Wyatt Crawford-14:41 (PR) Emmit Porter-15:39 (PR) Riley Donaldson-16:33 (PR) Callie Knoernschild-17:05 (PR) Wyatt, Riley, and Callie also earned medals for finishing in the Top 20 of their races. Great job, Tigers!
