The 7th Grade Tigers knew they were in for a battle and were well prepared for the confrontation with the marauding Spartans from Connersville. The atmosphere in the gym was very serious and the warm up was purposeful. The Tigers had every intent of imposing their will on the unsuspecting victims.
Game one started with four quick points served by Abby Necessary. The Spartans came back with a four point salvo of their own tying the score a five apiece. Ariana Santos Mendoza rotated back to the service line and added two, followed by three from Rylie Kidd and the point spread was suddenly five. The teams alternated sideouts for a couple rotations and Mendoza returned to the line. She added two more and the gap had widened to 21-12. The Tigers played steady, fundamental volleyball the remainder of the set and won 25-15.
Set two of the matchup proved to be the downfall of the Spartan nation. Necessary served the first seven points of the set and the rout was on. The Tigers had a couple of four point runs that provided the death knell of the Spartan’s chances. Four by Rylie Kidd, four more by Molly Clark and the Spartans were near defeat. Rylee Seal finished the job with two of her own culminating in a dominant 25-12 victory for Test. This competition was an appetizer for the Spartan Tournament repeat that will occurs in two days.
