The Lady Tigers from Houston swept the Thayer Lady Bobcats in South Central Association volleyball play last week.

Houston took both sets in the JV game, 25-15 and 25-12.

In varsity action, the Lady Bobcats made it close, but the Lady Tigers took the first set 25-21.

With good high setups from Thayer's Amber Whitem and Courtney Horton, along with floor-diving digs from Lesley Jones and Breanna Krusen and blocks at the net from Laken Martin, the Lady Cats got spikes to the open court from Courtney Hargrove and Emily Eckman to win the second set 25-21, forcing the third tie-breaker set.

Although momentum gave the Lady Bobcats an early lead, the Lady Tigers came roaring back to take the game-winning final set, 25-11.
