The Mansfield Sr High Lady Tigers spent this past Monday and Tuesday fighting tooth and nail in the 2019 District Volleyball Tournament held in West Fork. The #4 Lady Tigers first took on the #5 Booneville Lady Bearcats where they left them high and dry taking the 3-0 win. Moving on the Round 2, Mansfield was slated to face the #1 Paris Lady Eagles but after giving it all that they had, the Lady Tigers fell 3-0.
Totals after their two days at District left Haylee Helms with 17 digs and one ace. Vanessa Noblitt with seven digs, one block, and one ace. Natalie Allison earned five digs and two kills. Sadie Roberts grabbed eight kills, three blocks, and two digs. Kiara Thomas netted eight digs, one kill, and one ace, Maggie Strunk made four digs. Danielle Lillie earned one kill.

All is not lost though because not only will the Lady Tigers move on to vie for the third-place seat in District but they hitched a ride headed to State as well. On Thursday, October 24, Mansfield will battle the #3 Waldron Lady Bulldogs for third place starting at 5:30 p.m.
