Talk about a great way to open volleyball season. The Waldron Jr Lady Bulldogs spent their first volleyball conference week kickin’ butt and takin’ names. Up first for the Jr Lady Bulldogs was Booneville on August 25. The two teams furiously jousted each other in two sets ’till the bitter end. Although Waldron wangled the win, the Jr Lady Bearcats made sure the Jr Lady Bulldogs worked for it. Waldron took wins in both sets 25-16 and 25-17. Leading in kills was Kyleigh Cook and leading in aces was Cherish Rhinehart.

Next up, Waldron took on the West Fork Lady Tigers.“We traveled to West Fork on Thursday, August 27, and came home with a conference victory,” exclaimed Coach Hannah Scantling. Bursting with excitement over their second conference win of the week, the Jr Lady Bulldogs winning fate was sealed when they earned scores of 25-10 and 25-22. Ranking first in kills and aces was Kyleigh Cook. And top-tier in blocks was Lily Woodard and Emily Powell.

“Coach Moore and I are beyond proud of how our Jr High girls swept both of last week’s opponents. After a tough season last year, I’m thrilled with how well the girls have adjusted to the changes made this season and the intensity they bring to the court. We still have a lot of work to do, but starting off the opening week with two wins is huge for them!” For the upcoming week, the Lady Bulldogs will battle the Lady Tigers at Mansfield on August 31 at 4 pm. Then Waldron will stay home for Senior Night on September 1 to host Elkins at 4:30 pm. To finish the week, the Lady Bulldogs will take a road trip to Charleston on September 3 with gameplay starting at 4:30.
