MARSHALL -- The Green Forest Lady Tiger volleyball team put up their first win of the young season last Thursday during a road trip to Marshall.

The varsity took 25-16, 25-17, and 25-15 wins to take their match, while the JV lost in three games, 25-18, 9-25, and 14-16. The junior high also went three games and won, 25-10, 20-25, and 25-22.


Lady Tiger coach Trista Killingsworth said this was "a good, solid win, although we didn't get many kills. Marshall covers the floor really well. Our record now is 1-2."

In the first game coach said Emily Campbell served for 5 points in a row, that Carley Arnold had some good sets, and that they all had good serves.

"In game two Becca Larimer had some good serves, Jackie Webb had some good digs, and Jackie and Tiffani Tibbets had some hits from the back row," Killingsworth said.

In the third game, Kara Heads, who was the only Lady Tiger with kills (2), served 7 points in a row, from 13 to 19, to help the team keep the lead.


"We played really good the first game," Killingsworth said. "Megan Ness scored eight points in a row off her serve, and Kasey Young had some good sets. This group is inexperienced but really improving.

"The second game we didn't communicate and stood around. The third game, Yennifer Lopez, an outside hitter, was diving on the floor all the time and Lizet Guerrero, a first year player, had some really good passes."


Lady Tiger Makynna Jorgensen set the tone for this match when she used her jump serve to score 9 points in a row the first game. Coach said the second game the team (2-1) wasn't getting on the floor to save balls and lost.

"The third game was close," Killingsworth said. "Vanessa Etchison had some good passes, got on the floor, and Kaleigh Evans, our captain and a good leader, worked hard."
