2020 Not Going To “Net” Jr Lady Bulldogs


With a new year and a new head coach, the Waldron Jr High Lady Bulldogs are rip roarin’ and ready to go. Under the leadership of coaches Hannah Scantling and Bailey Moore, the girls have been spending a large amount of time in the gym perfecting their skills for the upcoming season. Waldron will be taking on other heavy-hitting teams like Hackett, Booneville, and Charleston in 3A conference play this season. But in true Lady Bulldog spirit, the Jr High squad isn’t afraid to leave a lasting impression in the minds of their competition so that they will never want to see the colors orange and black again.

When it comes to which teams Coach Scantling is looking forward to squaring off against in conference play she says. “Honesty, I am just excited to be squaring off with any team. With all of the uncertainty going on, we weren’t really sure that we would even be having a season. I’m so excited to get the season started!”

With a roster loaded with plenty of talent, the Jr Lady Bulldogs are ready for any challenge served their way. “For my Jr. High team, I’ve had my eye on a couple of girls that I think will do big things for us,” explained Coach Scantling. “Lily Woodard, a middle hitter, and Kylie Coker, an outside hitter, have been putting in some serious practice minutes by showing up to both senior high and junior high practices. I am beyond proud of the entire team and I think there will be many many more girls that stand out this year.”

Deciding to have a little fun in the closing interview, Coach Scantling was asked “If the AAA volleyball rules required the coach to eat something from the concession stand during the match, what would you pick and why?” she responded with a laugh “That’s a tough question. But, probably a snow cone, to ensure we stay COOL under pressure!!”
