Lady Roos fall to talented Granbury squad

Staff Report

Word of mouth was that Granbury has a proficient setter and good middle, and Weatherford’s Lady Roos found out the rumor was well-founded as they took on the Lady Pirates on Tuesday. The Lady Roos put up some resistance, but fell in three games to Granbury, 25-19, 25-18, 25-14.

The WHS girls started out flat in the opening set, but fought back in the mid-game to make a contest before Granbury closed it out. After a trying second game, Weatherford ran apace with the Lady Pirates in the final game before a Granbury surge ended the match. 

The Lady Roos hope to have an opportunity to face the Lady Pirates again this weekend as they play in the Granbury Tournament.


Springtown varsity sweeps Paschal

Staff Report

The Lady Porcupines improved to 5-3 on the season, outlasting Paschal’s Lady Panthers on Tuesday to win the match, 25-22, 25-21, 25-17.

Springtown used aggressive serving and a fast-paced game to top Paschal in a non-district match. Plagued with some recent injuries of late, Pojo has held up well, despite its front line not always being available.

Shelbi Meek led the Lady Porcs in kills and assists, recording 9 and 12, respectively. Ashley Mainord led defensively, with 18 digs and three blocks. Brooklynn Dauenhauer continues to contribute to Springtown’s effort. The junior had eight kills, as many assists and went to the floor for six digs.


WHS 9th-grade teams split with Granbury

Staff Report

In its 3rd pre-district game, Weatherford’s 9th-grade volleyball A-team swept the Lady Pirates in two games on Tuesday. Gracy Hardy had nine kills to help WHS beat Granbury, 25-15, 25-20. 

The B-team did well for its first outing, but made a few too many unforced errors in their 17-25, 18-25 losses. Brianna Aguilar was  a bright spot for the Lady Roos, serving up eight points, with Riley Melton, Allison Belcher and Lauren Lightfoot each recording four kills.
