Lady Bucks win District opener over Tigerettes
BRECKENRIDGE – A solid start by Jacksboro was more than countered by Breckenridge’s volleyball team Friday afternoon as the Lady Bucks posted a 15-25, 25-15, 25-12, 25-20 win here.
The young Tigerettes, who had a very rough non-district campaign, looked to turn it around quickly. A four-point Brailyn Tullous string, with help from a pair of Rylee Mathis kills, put the visitors up 7-2 in the opener and forced a Breckenridge timeout. Zena Ragle rolled off three straight to get within 8-9.
Game one would remain close with singles by Avery Bennett and Kylie Tullous keeping the Tigerettes on top before a three-point Teagan Reynolds swing forced another Breck timeout down 10-17. Lilly Woodward came out of the timeout and brought the hostesses within four but it would be as close as the Lady Bucks would get.
Brailyn Tullous served up five straight points with some help from a Rachael Chalmers block and a Mathis kill to put Jacksboro up 23-13. Tigerette senior Lilli Gonzales would put home the final point for the game one win.
