With the driving sound of George Clinton and Parliament’s Atomic Dog playing during the warm- up, the energy level was high. The Test Tigers were loose, relaxed and dancing. The Franklin County Bulldogs were visiting and the ferocious felines were set to devour their second canine in a week. The anticipatory lyric “Do the dogcatcher, dogcatcher, do the dogcatcher” roared from the speakers and the team was about to fulfill the Mothership’s request.
The young Tigers roared onto the floor and never looked back. Team co-captain Abby Nesessary immediately began the onslaught. Serve, ace, serve, ace, serve, ace… six back to back and the Bulldogs knew they were about to be caged. A timeout by Brookville, in an effort to slow things down, was futile. Abby returned to the service line and the aerial assault resumed. Four serves later and the Tigers had generated a commanding 11-1 lead.
After two exchanges of servers, co-captain Rylie Kidd rotated back to initiate play. The score stood at 13-4 and her terminal blitz began. She confidently and consistently directed ball after ball into the doomed ‘Dogs. Timeout and multiple substitutions did not deter the Cats. Reeling off the final 12 points of the set, the Tigers demonstrated their determination and finished game one in dominating fashion 25-5. There was no doubt, the Tigers had definitely caught the dog.
Game two was an opportunity to pass the leash. Scoring opportunities were dispersed throughout the Tiger lineup. Hylie Bradburn dished up three points, followed by three more from Aubree Falcone. Continuing to score points a few at a time, the Tiger cubs slowly, but consistently built a controlling lead. Three points by Addy Crass built the Test lead to 18-12 and the progression toward victory continued. Game two was an exercise demonstrating the team aspect of volleyball. Contributions came from everywhere on the court resulting in a 25-20 game two win. This victory puts the 7th grade Tigers at an astounding 6-1 for the season.
