Volleyball Results
Vs. Salado
Last night we hosted the Salado Eagles. We came up against a very scrappy Salado team.  We were able to get some very strong serving down the stretch and pull out a close win.  We had very good net play by Greenhaw, Moore and Perez!  Great passing and hustle by Faris, Shackelford, Lenz, Wendt, and Graves.  Also great Setting and Hitting by Courtney, Ford, Shackelford, and Walker.  Very proud of the girls and the way they played together and pulled out a very good win!

vs. Salado
The 7th B Lady Dawgs hosted the Salado Lady Eagles Monday night. The first set started off close and it was back and forth for the first 10 points, but with 6 straight unanswered serves from Leah Ng, the Lady Dawgs got the momentum going! Tatum Davis, Stephany Garcia and Jessenia Garcia hustled after many tough passes to the back row. Elizabeth Nash and Kendal Connolly played aggressive at the net with great blocks and hits. All the girls contributed to a big 25-13 win!
The second set was all Lady Dawgs! Salado struggled to get serves over and the Lady Dawgs were on fire! Taylor Mullins stepped up getting some service points along with great net play! Marissa Miller and Emma Nisely put up some big serves to get us up by 6. Baylae Breeden and Elizabeth Nash sealed the win with 6 aces each with a final score of 25-6.
I cannot say enough about this group of girls and their love of the game! They are working hard this week and will get ready to take on the Liberty Hill Lady Panthers in our final volleyball game of the season. Come support our volleyball girls as we finish our season strong!

The 7th grade girls’ volleyball Spirit and Pride teams played their last intramural game of the season last night. The first game was back and forth with neither team taking a strong lead.  Then Pride took a lead behind the powerful serves from Kya Martinez.  Spirit made a quick come back behind serves from Shayna Bartlett, Juleya Crawford, and Audrey Miller, which gave them the lead and Spirit won the first game.  The second game started off just like the first game with back and forth leads.  Both teams battled it out with great passing from Yamille Ramirez, Crystal Beam, Carrie Guthrie and Anna Barrios for Spirit and Kathryn Perkins, Leslie Rodriguez and Rebekah Weir for Pride. Pride finally took the lead with Kya Martinez serving 9 straight points in a row. Spirit was unable to recover and lost the second game.  This took us to a third game!  The third game was a different story, Pride jumped out to a dominating lead behind unbelievable serving from Lesli Rodriguez. The Spirit could not return the serves and lost the final game.   I am so proud of how hard the girls have worked this season and how much they have improved!!  It has been a pure joy watching the girls grow and enjoy playing the game!  Way to go Lady Dawgs!!

Vs Salado
We hosted a good Salado team last night.  After getting ourselves into an early 6-0 hole the girls really stepped up to the punches thrown by the Eagles and then started jabbing back!  The girls really played hard and never gave up!  Then trailing 17-12 Makenna Edwards stepped up and served 8 straight points to help us pull ahead 22-17.  After a small rally by Salado we were able to keep the lead and get the first game 25-22.  The 2nd started off going back and forth without either side gaining an advantage.  After great hustle and great passing by Beyer, Markgraf, Robison, Whitus, and Russell we were able to keep the score close with Edwards stepping up to serve again and once again she delivered with 8 straight points to help the Lady Dawgs pull ahead.  After a trading points back and forth and with some great net play by Greenwell, Hurst, Wilson, and Romero we were able to slow down the Salado run of 7 unanswered points.  With the game tied 24-24 Mikayla Whitus stepped up to serve and finished off the Eagles.  Very proud of  Mikayla for stepping into a very tough spot and coming out in such a great way for her team!  Such a great team win last night for the girls!  We really struggled the last time we played Salado and to come out and get a big hard fought win feels really good!    Next Monday we finish up the 2014 volleyball season in Liberty Hill.

The 8B Lady Dawgs hosted the Salado Lady Eagles last night for their final home game of their Junior High Volleyball career.  The game started off back and forth with neither team taking a lead.  Then Hattie Blair made several crucial serves that put us in the lead.  After great hustle and net play by Makenna Delill, Hattie Blair, Brooke Weller and Kathleen Fipps, we were able to keep a strong lead.  Finally, Brooke Weller stepped up and served 4 straight aces and sealed the game!  The next game started off slow by both teams.  Salado took a small lead at the halfway mark, but the Lady Dawgs weren’t willing to back down.  The girls missed a few serves and were unable to return a few Lady Eagles serves, but finally got the ball back.  At this point, the Lady Dawgs were down 16-17 and Hattie Blair came to the line.   With 10 straight unbelievable serves from Hattie and the amazing teamwork from the Lady Dawgs, we pulled out a fantastic win!  Our front row hitters, Aubrey Losey, Makenna Delill, Hattie Blair, Brooke Weller, Paige Bridgeman and Kathleen Fipps were aggressive at the net.  Peyton Phillips, Lucila Ortiz and Mackenzie Goertz backed their teammates up at the net with great passing and defense and the Lady Dawg setters, Giselle Valdez and McKinley Gonzales gave our hitters awesome sets.  I’m so proud of these young ladies, they finally pulled it all together and played the best they have played all season!  We hope to continue the dominant play when we travel to Liberty Hill next Monday and take on the Lady Panthers for our final game of the season.  Come out and support your Lady Dawgs as they take on Liberty Hill!

The 8th grade Lady Dawgs Spirit and Pride teams played their final game last night! The girls played with a lot of heart and fought for every point. The first set started off slow with many missed serves, but Melissa Sprankle got 4 aces to get the Pride team rolling. The Spirit kept it close with great serves from Fatima Rodriguez and Madison Glaspy. Paige Cheesman and Harli Springer made some great sets for team Pride and Brooklin Sutton and Brie Wathen made great back row passes to help out team Spirit. But it was team Pride that would take the lead and keep it with a final score of 25-18.
The second set was even better with some amazing improvement from many girls who stepped up and did some great things! Brie Wathen and Ashley Branson got serves over for the first time in a game! I am so proud of them for accomplishing a goal they had both set! Jennifer Lopez and Sydni Stieler both served well getting many points for their team. Rebekah Hood made some incredible service points for team Spirit, but it was team Pride that would take over and keep a slight lead until the end.
This group of young ladies showed a great deal of improvement from the first week of practice! They all had a fantastic season! Go Lady Dawgs!!!

Football Results
On Thursday night the 8th grade Bullpups Football Teams took on the Gatesville Hornets at home.
White Team
The White team got off to a slow start allowing two first half touchdowns and at halftime found themselves in a 14-0 hole.  Gatesville had a couple long runs to score both TDs, and a few Bullpup offensive drives were stalled by penalties.  At halftime the boys decided that wasn’t how they wanted this game to go and came out very determined on both sides of the ball in the second half.  The offense got going behind the running of QB Zac Esposito, and RBs Wade Nedbalek and Zac Shaw.  Nedbalek squirted through some holes for some big gains and a TD, while Shaw had some bruising runs to delight the crowd and inspire his team.  A second TD by Esposito, and a conversion by Shaw would tie the score at 14.  Robert Nedbalek paced the defense with some big hits and an interception.  In a game that looked gloomy at halftime, the boys rallied, showing great determination and fight.
Green Team
After watching the White team come from behind and refuse to lose, the green team took the field in what would turn out to be a great battle between two good football teams.  The first half was a back and forth affair with the offense moving the ball and the defense coming up with some big stops.  The Pups got on the scoreboard first with a Silver Hinson 15 yard TD run.  Ryan Jackson conversion attempt was stopped short and the lead was 6-0.  The defense made it tough on the Hornet offense all night, but on a 4th down and 6, they were able to break a few tackles and get down the sideline for a long run.  Halftime saw the Pups down 8-6.  The second half was similar to the first with a lot of big defensive plays form both teams causing them to trade punts on the first few drives.  At the end of the 3rd quarter we faced a 4th and 15, and Ryan Jackson avoided tackles for a 17 yard gain to keep the drive alive.  After a couple tough Jordan Foster and Silver Hinson runs, Brynner Shackelford found the endzone to give the Bullpups a 12-8 lead.  The fourth quarter would test us defensively, and the boys passed with flying colors as we stopped the Hornets twice on fourth down.  A couple tough tackles by the linebacking corp of Zach Ferguson, Andre Meredith, Clayton McLaughlin, and Joseph Corona, kept the Hornet running game to a minimum, while key pass break ups by Shackelford and Jess Luther allowed the Bullpups to kneel out the clock for a second straight come from behind win.
The 7th and 8th graders hit the road again next Thursday as we are back in Waco to take on the LaVega Pirates.
