Tigerettes take road victory

FORT WORTH – Sometimes an individual can be their own worst enemy.

In many cases, that is what is plaguing Jacksboro’s varsity volleyball team in the early going of the 2018 season. The Tigerettes’ mindset on the road here to start Tuesday’s match with Class 5A Fort Worth Southwest allowed the game but outmanned Lady Raiders to stay close throughout the majority of game one.

Once the Tigerettes got out of their own head, the squad played much better and asserted their dominance in what was a 25-21, 25-8, 25-9 victory. Coach Tennessee Arey said confidence is getting better every match.

“Our mental game is coming around, but we still have times where we are our own worst enemy,” Arey said following the 55-minute match. “Once we find our mental place, we’re going to be exciting to see.”

The visitors got off on the right foot, using a four-point string from senior Carly Hart, including an ace, to take a 7-2 lead in game one. Single tallies from Leah Plaster and Trinity Tisdale allowed the squad to maintain its lead.
