Fredericksburg takes all four middle school volleyball matches

The Lady Badgers’ eighth-grade “A” team played two very close sets but lost 24-26, 25-23, 9-25 to Fredericksburg on Monday.

Coach Christy Wiley said Lampasas “showed great skill.”

“We had consistent passes and great net play,” Wiley added. “I am so proud of the effort shown in the first two sets. We fell short in the third and let down, not able to pick it back up. Even though we lost, I am so proud of the effort and their improvement!”

Fredericksburg also won the eighth-grade “B” game.

“The girls had a rough time getting started in the first set, and fell behind early and never recovered,” Wiley said. “The second set started off better, and I saw some spurts of greatness, but we just couldn't maintain it.”

Taran Garnett delivered four unanswered serves, and Wiley said several players hustled after every ball.

Fredericksburg won 25-11, 25-21.

The LMS seventh-grade “A” had "one of those days,” Wiley said, and “struggled to get into a groove.”

Fredericksburg easily took the first set, although the second set was closer, with the Lady Badgers falling short 14-25.

Lampasas’ seventh-grade “B” team fought hard but fell short, Wiley said.

“These girls moved their feet, talked, backed each other up and fought like a Badger!”

Breanna Quarles and Kylie Grantland served well, Wiley said.

“I am seeing more and more confidence in all these girls,” the coach added.

Lampasas is scheduled to compete in the South Belton tournament today and Saturday.
