Tigerettes split with Bowie, Henrietta
Locked in a battle for nearly two hours here Saturday afternoon, Jacksboro and Bowie’s varsity volleyballers left everything they had on the floor for their supporters.
Bowie had a 10-9 lead in the fifth set before Jacksboro broke serve and used pairs of points from Jordan Pruitt and Alex Holman, both freshmen, to finish the job in a thrilling 25-20, 17-25, 25-17, 16-25, 15-11 match at Tiger Gym.
Jacksboro is 3-4 and Bowie 2-5 to close out the first round of District 8-3A play. The rematch will be in the regular season finale Oct. 24.
The squads went nip and tuck through game one with neither team getting more than a two-point lead until Jacksboro junior Trinity Tisdale rolled off three straight to put the Tigerettes up 23-18. A Tisdale kill ended the game.
Maddie Baker staked the Lady Rabbits to a 5-0 lead in game two, getting some frontcourt help from Makenzie Gresham. Three Lauren Gill points extended the lead to 12-3. Jacksboro would get no closer than five points at 16-21 to even the match at a set each.
