HATLEY – The Hatley Lady Tigers were swept by Itawamba AHS on Thursday night 3-0 by scores of 25-22, 25-20, 25-20 but found plenty of improvements as their first season as a team starts to come to a close.
“We were in there for all three sets, and we competed hard,” Hatley coach Chris George said. “Our serves are getting better. We are communicating better on the court, and we gave ourselves a chance tonight. Unfortunately we came out on the losing end, but I have zero complaints about tonight’s game. I’m proud of the girls and the way they got after it.”
Hatley jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first set, but Itawamba fought back and took a 7-6 lead. The Lady Tigers weren’t done, going back on top both at 10-9 and 12-11 and getting back up by three.
