With only three games under their belt, the Hackett Lady Hornets are already flexing their volleyball muscle and letting it be known that they mean business. With their second week of conference play behind them, Hackett sits comfortably at the top with a conference play record of 3-0. In week one, the Lady Hornets owned Alpena and Eureka Springs in two “close but no cookie” volleyball matches. And on September 3, the girls overpowered their latest victims, the Mulberry Lady Yellowjackets, with a scorecard reading 25-13, 25-4, and 25-13.
Bringing in a top-notch kill record for their Mulberry face-off was Rain Vaughn with 8, Kandace Byrd with 3, Madeline Freeman with 2, and combining for a total of 6 with one each was Kayla Richardson, Kenadi Wright, Jamye Durham, Jordyn Null, Kadence Glass, and Sophia Neal. When it comes to the “Aces” department, these Lady Hornets have no problem telling the competition “You’ve Been Served.” Shayla Foster earned 7, Madeline Freeman and Rain Vaughn each obtained 5, Kandace Byrd netted 3 and bringing in a combined total of 7 was Kayla Richardson, Kenadi Wright, Sarah White, and Emma Infalt.
The Sr High Lady Hornets will hit the court again this Saturday, September 7 for the 2019 Alma Invitational. Hackett will enter into pool play with Paris, Farmington, and Clarksville and will have their first match at 9:30 a.m. against Farmington.
