The Lady Mavs Chomp the Gators
The 7th and 8th Grade lady Mavericks volleyball teams competed against the Mayde Creek JH Gators on Wednesday, September 11th.
The 7th graders visited the Gators' home, and came out with two teams winning their matches. Coach Elrod's 7C defeated the Gators in a 2-0 sets, and Coach Hamilton's 7B team defeated them in hard fought 2-0 sets. The 7A team showed a lot of talent and knowledge of the game. They fought hard, but were defeated by the Gators in a 0-2 match set.
The 8th grade vets showed no mercy to the Mayde Creek Gators. All three teams came out with a win. Coach Alford's 8A team smashed the Gators in a 2-0 set, Coach Harris' 8B team defeated MCJH in a three games winning the first and last set, and Coach Eisenach
Our principal, Mr. Mark McCord, commented that the 8th grade girls really showed some great talent.
"Fans were packed in the stands, and the noise volume was astronomical!" he stated.
The girls hope to see even more fans for the 7th grade HOME game this coming Wednesday, September 18th, as the Lady Mavericks take on the Cardiff Colts. 8th grade will, therefore, take their talents to the Colt's den. Game times are 4:30pm, 5:15pm, and 6:00pm.
