Lady Tigers thump Red Hill in opener
Sports Editor

It may not have been perfect, but first matches rarely are.

Still, Hutsonville-Palestine's volleyball team played well in their season opener Wednesday (Aug. 28) and rolled to a two-set win over Red Hill, 25-5, 25-12.

"Overall I'm very pleased with how the girls played," HHS-PHS head coach Shandy Matthews said. "There were first game nerves for everyone, but they settled down and played ball. The second set for varsity got off to a slow start, but they got back in the groove. Our service was good. We played well as a team. Hopefully, we can build from here and keep improving."

Ashlyn Matthews led Hutsonville-Palestine with 13 points on 13-13 service, along with 12 spikes with four kills and seven digs. Marah Matthews posted 10 points on 10-10 serves, 19 good sets and 10 digs, Katie Draper totaled eight points with one ace, nine digs, six spikes and one stuff block, Paige Matthews contributed eight points on eight good serves, eight digs and six good sets and Isabel Sheets collected three points on four good serves, 13 spikes with five kills and five digs.

In the junior varsity match, Hutsonville-Palestine rolled to a 25-10, 25-9 win.

McKenna Love led Hutsonville-Palestine with 17 points on 18-18 service and collected 17 good sets, while Emily Knecht posted six points on eight good serves and four spikes, Gwen Lathrop contributed four points on five good serves, six spikes with two kills and three digs and Reese Williamson netted four points on five good serves, three spikes with one kill and six good sets.
