The Jacksboro Tigerette volleyball team hosted the district-leading Henrietta Lady Bearcats Friday afternoon, hoping to upset the current front runners and move back into the post season race.
The JV Tigerettes got the afternoon off to a good start as they defeated the Bearcats in three games.
The varsity Tigerettes matched the Lady Bearcats hit-for-hit in the first game.
However, Jacksboro was unable to overcome one last surge by Henrietta and dropped the first game 25-19.
The Tigerettes put together one of their best games of the year in game three.
A kill from Brooklyn Green put the Tigerettes back in front and Jacksboro went on to win game three 25-23.
The Tigerettes fought back from a slow start in game four to pull to within a point.
However, Henrietta put together a run that gave the Lady Bearcats a five point lead that was stopped by a kill from Laake and the Tigerettes were able to close the gap to 11-8.
The Lady Bearcats then went on a run that the Tigerettes were not able to answer and Jacksboro dropped game four 25-9.
The Tigerettes will travel to Nocona Tuesday evening.
