Jr Lady Hornets Continue To Walk The Walk

When it comes to volleyball, the Hackett Jr High Lady Hornets, continue to set their opponents up while then turning around and knocking them right back down. Adding to their list of most recent victims, the Jr Lady Hornets chained up the Waldron Lady Bulldogs when they took both sets with scores of 25-14 and 25-6. The girls then turned around and asked the Lavaca Jr Lady Arrows to “bring it” but quickly grounded Lavaca and took yet another victory 2-0. The Hackett Jr Lady Hornets now sit UNDEFEATED in season play 12-0.

“I would say that these are some of the hardest-working kids I know,” exclaimed Coach Bridget Freeman. “They have excellent attitudes and come prepared to work hard literally every single day. They work a lot in off-season playing club volleyball (which means they have dedicated core talent too) and they are always ready to work hard during the summer practices. I cant wait to see what senior high holds for this group of 9th graders.”

From their last two successful matches, Alona Rothwell netted 3 aces, 9 kills, 3 blocks, 4 digs, and 3 assists. Prairie Vaughn earned 8 aces, 5 kills, 3 digs, and 18 assists. Lexi Gann scored 4 kills, 1 block, and 1 dig. Aubree Ruggles made 5 kills and 3 digs. Makenzie Freeman obtained 9 aces, 3 kills, 2 blocks, and 7 digs. Michaelyn Freeman grabbed 1 ace, 5 kills, and 9 digs. And Jessie Mendenhall and Aaliyah Escoffier got 2 and 1 assists respectively.

The Hackett Jr High Lady Hornets will hit the court again tonight, Thursday, October 8 when they host the Booneville Lady Bearcats.
