Ladycats back on winning track after 25-21, 25-23, 25-12 sweep of Midlothian


Senior hitter Hannah Jones recorded a match-high 13 kills and junior middle hitter Daleigh Ellison finished with a match-high seven blocks as the pair helped the Aledo Ladycats to a 25-21, 25-23, 25-12 victory over the Midlothian Lady Panthers Tuesday night in a non-district volleyball contest at Midlothian.

The win raises the Ladycats overall record to 16-13. Aledo will play next at home on Friday against Midlothian Heritage. The match is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. at the AHS gym.

Evelyn Torres finished with 10 kills and led the Ladycats defensively with 16 digs, while Lilly Taylor added eight kills.

Aledo used a 4-0 run to clinch the opening game, sparked by two kills from Torres, an ace by Jones and the game-winning kill from Taylor. In game two, Aledo trailed 23-22 before a service error by Midlothian tied the game at 23 and sent service control to the Ladycats.

A kill by Ellison followed by a kill by Torres - both on sets from Maggie Wackerhagen - sealed the second set and gave AHS a 2-0 lead in games.

The Ladycats never trailed in game three, taking leads of 10-4, 15-6, 19-10 and 23-12 before a back-row kill by Jones followed by a Lady Panthers' return error clinched game three and the match.

The Ladycats sub-varsity teams also defeated Midlothian. The junior varsity cruised to a 25-11, 25-16 victory, while the freshman ladies won in three sets, 25-17, 22-25, 25-23.
