After winning against Fairview 3-1, the Lady Red Hawks improve to 8-0 in District 11AA. The Lady Red Hawks overcame an early struggle, and the experience of playing hard volleyball never dies. “A high level of concretion helped us focus in to win.” Coach Tom Mullinicks saw in the early sets that his team was in a struggle against Fairview with two, big blockers for the Lady Yellow Jackets. “(We) have not seen the experience of struggling at the net. There is a reason why they were able to win.” Coach Mullinicks also said the team “did not play like we have in the last few weeks, but the experience at the net helped us.” The experience against the Lady Yellow Jackets helped the Red Hawks learn to fight through the challenge, and the hard work of sweat symbolizes a tough victory won by the Lady Red Hawks.
Two hours and twenty minutes after the first serve, the Lady Red Hawks volleyball team finished their fourth set to win over Cheatham County, Tuesday at Creek Wood High School.
After losing the first set in a thriller (34-32), Creek Wood slammed the door on Cheatham Co., winning three straight sets (25-20, 25-11, 25-20). Major contributions came from Samantha Davenport’s defensive blocks and Rebekah Petty’s spiking ability.
The Lady Red Hawks will travel to Fairview this Wednesday, and then to Harpeth on Thursday.
Creek Wood volleyball wrapped up a very successful season in the Region 6-AA tournament recently, coming up short against eventual champ Page out of Franklin. Page swept our Lady Red Hawks before sweeping the Harpeth Lady Indians in the title game. Creek Wood comes up just one win shy of the title game, and as such the sectionals, so the Lady Red Hawks have nothing to be ashamed of. Rest assured, however, that Creek Wood volleyball will use this as motivation–after all, when they end their season so close to a goal, the girls will naturally strive to take that next step.
