REGION II, 3A BI-DISTRICT VOLLEYBALL: AHS eliminated by Spring Hill, 3-0

WHITEHOUSE — The Athens Lady Hornets found out just how tough the No. 3-ranked Spring Hill Lady Panthers are Tuesday night as they were eliminated in the bi-district round of the playoffs at Wildcat Arena.

The Lady Hornets lost in three straight by scores of 25-14, 25-22 and 25-9.

With the loss, coach Liz Ramsey’s Lady Hornets finished the season with an overall record of 16-22. Spring Hill improved to 35-2 overall with the win.

The best game for the AHS came in Game 2 as both teams battled back-and-forth as Spring Hill held a 14-11 lead behind a kill from Mikai Brown off an assist from Rachel Riestenberg.

AHS would battle back behind the serving of junior outside hitter Sarah Red as she blasted two aces past the Spring Hill defenders to tie the game at 14-14.

Later in the game, Athens was looking to gain some momentum off a kill from Cari Aguilera off an assist from senior Hannah Feinsod for the 22-21 lead.

But Spring Hill was able to close out the game as Brown smashed an ace, followed by back-to-back kills from sophomore Ann Hollas to close out the game.

In the third game, Athens could not figure out how to stop Spring Hill’s Jenna Hampton – who had six kills during the game – along with strong net play from Hollas, Brown and Jacey Fleet. Hollas closed out the match with a strong kill right through the heart of the AHS defense for the 25-9 finale.

Note: Tuesday night’s match was the final volleyball contest for seniors Elizabeth Hilliard, Aguilera, Krystal Davis and Feinsod.
