The Tishomingo County volleyball team traveled to North Pontotoc this past Saturday along with Alcorn County squads Corinth and Alcorn Central and won their first two matches of the 2017 season.

The Lady Braves topped the host Lady Warriors 2-1 (25-14, 22-25, 15-11) in the opener before taking care of Amory 2-1 (25-18, 22-25, 15-10).

“I’m very pleased with the way the girls played,” said head coach Becky Middleton. “We started off well in both matches before slipping a bit in the middle. But our players showed heart and determination and bounced back and did what they had to do to win.”

In the opener against Pontotoc Bailey Reece led the way with five blocks and eight assists while Casey Johnson had seven kills. Christian Bobo recorded four aces against the Lady Warriors and Briley Hill was solid with a pair of digs.

Facing off against the Lady Panthers, defense was the name of the game as four different TC players had four kills including Briley Hill, Casey Johnson, Brittany Newcomb and Christian Bobo. Ashleigh McRae had a solid outing with three blocks and five assists while Molly Powers finished with three aces on serve.

We really dominated against Amory even though we lost that second set,” said Middleton. “We actually led that set 20-13 at one point but we bounced back really well to win in three.”

Tishomingo County returns to action on Thursday with a road date at Belmont beginning with the JV game at 5.

Kossuth sweeps Potts Camp

It took the Lady Aggies nearly the entire 2016 season to win their second match but they have already equalled that after their 3-0 win at Potts Camp on Monday.

Kossuth won by scores of 25-16, 25-17 and 26-24.

“It’s a good start definitely,” said head coach Hopper. “We didn’t play our best tonight but the girls always showed unity and pulled together and that is a big step for us.”

The Lady Aggies return to action Thursday as they host Hickory Flat at the KHS gym. As an added bonus the newly-formed junior high team will play their first game ever starting at 4:30 followed by the JV and varsity.
