After the battle of Wildcats, Alivia Bowen, Gracie Anderson and Az’ja White were all honored
“I am extremely proud of Gracie Anderson and Liv Bowen for being named both All-District and All-Tournament. Our offense was at its best when we could work through the middle hitters. In addition to their offense, both Gracie and Liv harassed opposing teams with their blocks, and took advantage of opposing teams’ overpasses,” Head Coach Dan Lynch said.
“Also making All-District was senior outside hitter Az’ja White. Az’ja more than anyone else took to my philosophy of ‘no free balls’,” Lynch said. “Az’ja worked very hard on her approach this season and it showed in the improvement in her hitting percentage through the entire season.”
“I think the girls showed great progress this year,” Head Coach Dan Lynch said. “The first round match verses Marshall County in the district tournament showed what we were capable of doing.”
The Lady Wildcats finished their season 6-6 in the region and plan to improve more next year with more aggression to bigger opponents.
