Lady Gator Volleyball Team Thumps Appling and Lowndes in Opener

Last year, the Lady Gator won back-to-back matches in their season opener. Yesterday, they duplicated their opener with back-to-back wins again. The Lady Pirates of Appling County and the Lady Vikings of Lowndes County traveled over to the Gator Den for a three team play date. The Lady Gators faced off against Appling County in the first match. Game 1 was won by a score of 25-6 and game two by a score of 25-10. In match 2, the Lady Gators defeated the Lady Vikings in two straight games as well. Game 1 was won by a score of 25-17, and game 2 by a score of 26-24. "As a team, we made several mistakes, but somehow, we found a way to overcome the mistakes to win the match," said Coach Alesia Gibson.

On a side note, we would like to thank everyone for coming out to support us. For the first game of the season, we had a good turnout of family, friends, and fans. We even had a few Lady Gators seniors (Jayme Russell, Lauren Walker, Kiersten Moye) from last year to come out and support the girls as well
