If there’s one thing that the town of Mansfield can say about their Sr High Lady Tigers, it would be that although they have hit some bumpy spots in the road this season, they continue to play as if it has been a smooth ride. The Lady Tigers laugh in the face of adversity and walk into every match with the same amount of ferociousness and concentration as the time before. Mansfield started their week off with a rough go losing 3-0 to Hackett on Monday and Paris on Tuesday in close sets. The Lady Tigers now sit 12-11 in total season play, 5-6 in conference, and hold the fifth position in the 3A West standings.
The totals from both Hackett and Paris games, show the Lady Tigers delivering some impressive blows. When it comes to killing it, Brooke Wright led her team with 14 kills while Sadie Roberts followed with eight. Danielle Lillie earned seven and Vanessa Noblitt, Kiara Thomas, and Maggie Strunk brought in one each. Combining for a total of six aces were Thomas, Strunk, Lillie, and Wright.
With more blocks than an ice factory was Roberts leading with seven, Wright with four, and Noblitt with one. And with more digs than an archeologist was Haylee Helms with a whopping 29 followed by Lillie with 16, Thomas with 10, Noblitt with nine, Strunk with eight, and Wright with two. The Mansfield Lady Tigers will be hosting the 3-8 West Fork Lady Tigers in their annual “Pink Out” volleyball match tonight starting with Jr High at 4:30. The Lady Tigers are asking all fans to wear pink in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
