State-ranked Ladycats sweep Boswell to stay on top of 5-4A

September 21, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo senior middle Jordan Jacobs had a match-high 15 kills and four blocks and senior outside hitter Christa Daniel added 12 stoppers to help the state-ranked No. 14 Ladycats to a 25-16, 25-12, 25-17 victory over Boswell Tuesday night in District 5-4A volleyball action at Boswell.

The win raises the Ladycats district mark to 4-0. Aledo is alone in first place after Nelson defeated Azle. The Ladycats have a one-match lead over Azle (3-1) and Springtown (3-1).

Aledo (22-8) will continue 5-4A play at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24 at home against Keller Timber Creek.

In addition to solid play from the two senior hitters, sophomore middle Briana Sharratt recorded eight kills, senior outside hitter Lindsey Baird added seven stoppers and junior outside hitter Tyler Gromann finished with three kills.

Sophomore setter Mallory Powell registered a match-high 38 assists, and defensively, senior libero Taylor Brown recorded a match-high 22 digs with Daniel providing 13 digs.

In sub-varsity action, the Ladycats junior varsity dropped its first game by a 25-20 count, but rallied to win the next two games 25-7 and 25-21 to seal the match and stay undefeated at 4-0 in 5-4A.

The Ladycats freshman "A" team raised its district record to a sparkling 4-0 as well after sweeping Boswell, 25-14, 25-17.
