On Feb 2-3, the Mansfield Lady Tigers that make up volleyball team Velocity traveled to the Fort Smith Convention Center to play in the Battle at the Fort. The girls started out great in pool play on Saturday going undefeated and earning a spot in the Gold bracket for Sunday’s competition.
Although the girls gave it everything that they had, Team Velocity ended up falling from Sunday’s bracket play after only winning one game. They finished tied for ninth place out of a total of 40 other teams that competed. It was still a victory for Team Velocity because this was their highest finish in this particular tournament.
Executing more hits than the mafia was Skylynn Harris with 51 kills, Natalie Allison with 20, and Brooklyn Adams with 17. Assisting with the set-up was Kynslee Ward with 41 assists and Natalie Allison with 35. Providing top-notch service with their amount of serving aces was Brooklyn Adams with 13, Natalie Allison with 7 and, Skylynn Harris with 6. Playing in their own version of Mission Unblockable was Skylynn Harris with 9 blocks and Alyson Edwards with 3. Can you dig it? Bringing in the most digs in the backcourt was Brooklyn Adams with 79, Skylynn Harris with 71, and Kinley Hanfelder with 39.
Team Velocity will travel to Hot Springs this weekend, February 9 and 10, for the Hot Springs Classic.
