It’s official! Volleyball season has begun. The Mansfield Lady Tigers recently held their always exciting “Red and White” volleyball scrimmage and by the end of the night, fans were left wanting more. With back to back matches, the Jr High squad took to the court first. The girls competed with a fierce nature nicely coupled with encouragement for a fellow teammate if a mistake was accidentally made. The match ended with a close final score and the tone being set for the rest of the night.
The Sr High Lady Tigers were up next and they hit the ground running. Showing off their polished skill set sprinkled with a touch of competitiveness, it was evident that this season is not going to be a walk in the park for teams stepping up to face the Lady Tigers. Returning coaches Kaylie Pyles and Erica McKay were made proud of the hard work that the girls had put into the “Red and White” game along with the incredible turnout of the community.
By the end of the night, the Sr High Lady Tigers who had represented the teams “Keep It One HundRED” and “Serves You White”, had left an empowering and optimistic feeling in the air with what’s in store for the upcoming season. The Sr High team will play in a benefit game in Arkadelphia on August 22 at 5:30 p.m and on August 26, regular season play will start at 4 pm at Lavaca against the Lady Arrows.
