Trigg County inched their way above the .500 mark on the season with a 25-20, 25-13 win over Reidland Sept. 29 at Wildcat Gym.

Mary Wallace, the team’s lone senior, was recognized in a ceremony held before the game.

Once the game started, the Lady Wildcats struggled to put the contest away with the score tied nine times, the last at 20-20.

The Lady Wildcats forged ahead 22-20 and then put the game away on three straight kills by Cayla Hampton at the net.

Hampton finished the match with 15 kills and three aces.

The second game wasn’t nearly as close as Kalesha Williams served the Lady Wildcats to a 5-0 lead, including aces on her first two serves. She finished with seven aces in the match.

The teams split the next ten points for a 10-5 Trigg lead before Hampton served consecutive aces to spark an 8-2 Lady Wildcat run and extend their lead to 18-7.

Casey Banister had 16 assists, while Stacy Schoneman had three kills and an ace.

Trigg County was able to survive a shaky night of serving (82-percent) because Reidland served worse with a 72-percent success rate.

Trigg County improved to 15-14 on the season. After a pair of games earlier in the week, the Lady Wildcats return to action Monday night in the district tournament.

Reidland fell to 0-11 with the loss.

Trigg’s J.V. team won 21-13, 21-15, led by Kasta Rea’s three kills and four aces, Morgan Parker’s five aces, and Courtney Oliver’s four aces.

Trigg County suffered their first district setback of the season Sept. 27 with a 25-19, 25-17 loss at Caldwell County’s Butler Gym.

The Lady Wildcats could never string together consistent rallies against the Lady Tigers, who they had beaten in three sets Aug. 25.

Cayla Hampton celebrated her 16th birthday with 11 kills and two aces, while Kalesha Williams added four kills and four blocks.

Kasta Rea saw quite a bit of varsity action and responded with three blocks, and Casey Banister dished out 12 assists.

The loss was Trigg’s first in five district games this year, but didn’t affect seeding for next week’s district tournament at Wildcat Gym.

Caldwell County is now 14-13 on the season.

Madisonville showed why they are one of the top teams in the Second Region with a 25-10, 25-21 win over Trigg County Sept. 26 at Wildcat Gym.

The Lady Maroons improved to 26-5 overall and a perfect 10-0 against Second Region competition.

Stacy Schoneman had three kills and three aces for the Lady Wildcats, while Casey Banister added six assists and served three aces, and Cayla Hampton had four kills.

Madisonville also won the J.V. game 25-10, 25-21.
