There was a large crowd for the Lavaca vs Hackett Senior High Volleyball match Tuesday night, October 2nd. This was a much anticipated match up. Lavaca’s only conference loss had come at the hands of Hackett who came into this match undefeated in conference. The atmosphere was electric and it was apparent that Lavaca was on a mission.
The first set was a back and forth slug fest but in the end it went to Hackett 27 to 25. The Arrows battled back dominating the second and third sets winning both by the same score of 25-16. Hackett came back and took the fourth set 25-18 to force a fifth and final set. Lavaca took the rubber match 15-11 to end Hackett’s quest for an undefeated season.
This match was everything you hope for in a high school competition. Both teams stood toe to toe and traded points like punches from two prize fighter. Coach Mark Headley was very pleased with the win and had this to say, “It was a total team effort! I thought the girls played with unbelievable passion tonight and played together as well as they have all year!” One thing is for certain, the Lavaca vs Hackett match number 3 at the District Tournament should be one for the books!
