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.
After falling behind early, the fourth-seeded Dickson County High School Lady Cougars stormed back for a 5-1 victory over Northeast in the opener of the District 10-AAA soccer tournament Monday. The Lady Cougars got goals from five different players and settled down defensively to close out the Lady Eagles after giving up an early goal. Kat Andrews tied the match for DCHS and the Lady Cougars moved ahead to stay on a goal by Taite Hedrick. Payton Crider added a score before halftime for a 3-1 edge. Dickson County found the net twice in the second half on goals by Makenze Inman and Katie Kruse to wrap up the victory and advance to Tuesday’s 6 pm semifinal at Henry County. The Lady Patriots eliminated Northwest Monday. The other semifinal has Clarksville taking on Rossview Tuesday. Clarksville pounded Kenwood 7-1 Monday while Rossview blanked West Creek 6-0. Creek Wood’s Lady Red Hawks got goals from Kaitlin Siddall and Liz Goggans to top Macon County 2-1 in the District 10-A/AA tournament opener. Creek Wood advances to face Harpeth at 6:30 tonight.
