Lady Tigers fall in Bi-district
Monday, 12 November 2012 by Grayson Edds
The Belton Tigers Volleyball team made a huge comeback from last year's 0-13 season. With a new coach and a fresh start, the Tigers made it to the bi-district playoffs on Tuesday night, but lost in three to Cedar Hill: 14-25, 21-25, 21-25.
"Cedar hill was the best offensive team we have played all year," said Coach Stacy Meyers.
Kinzie Williams, junior middle hitter, had nine digs, while Brieanne Brown, junior outside hitter, had five, but it just wasn't enough to shut down their offense.
"We played hard and didn't make a large number of mistakes," said Meyers. "They earned their points, and we didn't give up."
Teamwork was the name of the game for Belton as they put of a fight to put points on the board. Madelyn Graves, senior setter, had seven assists, Maggie Kramer, senior setter, had six assists, and Machaela Moore, junior setter, had five.
Kyler Watkins, senior, middle hitter, led the team with five kills, followed by Brown, Savannah Frick, senior right hitter, and Monica Gonzales, junior middle hitter, all of whom had four kills each.
Although they will lose six seniors this year, they have a handful of juniors that will step up as leaders of the team and a promising bunch of freshmen and sophomores to compete for the remaining spots on varsity.
