This Saturday, September 7th, the Lake Belton Lady Tigers A team 7th and 8th grade Volleyball teams traveled to Robinson High School to compete in their annual tournament.
The 7th grade A Tiger Volleyball team was in action at the Robinson JH Volleyball Tournament. The Tigers started out strong and hungry with a great win over host school Robinson. North Belton was our next opponent. The back and forth battle ended with North Belton as the winner of that match. On to match 3 for a chance at 3rd place overall. Lake Belton would face a scrappy Salado team and had to work hard to earn every point. We played hard and came away with the “W” and as 3rd place in the tournament. Players of the tournament include Aniyah Victorian, Gabby Jones, Kali Mayberry, and Natalie Maldonado.
The 8th grade A team had an educational day of volleyball working out some kinks in the rotation, as well as learning to play defense and move much quicker to the ball. They faced Robinson first in the day, and Robinson brought the heat. Taking a loss in their first game of the day North Belton was slated to be their next opponent. Having already faced North Belton in regular season and losing, Lake was ready for some redemption on the court. Each point was a battle, as both teams were working hard to get those points. North Belton broke away at the end with some solid serving and took the win. Lake Belton 8th grade was done for the day, having walked away with 2 losses and some lessons. Ready to improve their game in practices in the upcoming week. Player of the tournament was Aijah Bailey-Ray for aggressiveness and hustle at the net.
