Lady Mavs show how to get hardware in the Bluegrass State

The Anderson County High School volleyball team made a trip to Kentucky over the weekend, and the Lady Mavericks returned with a tournament championship when action had concluded Saturday.

ACHS (17-8 overall, 5-0 in District 3-AA) lost its first two matches in Georgetown, Ky., as it fell to Scott County (Kentucky) and Marion County (Kentucky) in three sets, in matches contested in the best-of-three format.

But the Lady Mavericks would bounce back Saturday and win a pair of matches to claim the tournament’s Bronze Division Championship.

ACHS defeated Trimble County (Kentucky), 25-14, 25-8, as Emily Mustard had seven kills and one block.

Alyssa Meier chipped in with five kills, and Gracie Hayes served up five aces.

Shelby Kelly came up with six digs, and Jaylynn Bullock dished out 17 assists for Anderson County, which also won district matches against Sequoyah and South-Doyle last week.

The Lady Mavericks closed out their stay in the Bluegrass State with a win over Southwestern, claiming a 28-26, 25-20 victory.

Meier had seven kills, and Mustard added five.

Kelly finished with four aces and five digs, while Bullock recorded 23 assists.

Anderson County played Loudon Tuesday, but results were not available at press time.

The Lady Mavericks will play at Kingston Thursday at 6 p.m.
