The Hazard Lady Bulldog volleyball team hosted the Knott Central Patriots last week. The Lady Bulldogs opened the season with a win over the Lady Patriots, and were looking to sweep the season series.
The Lady Bulldogs opened the game determined not to let the Lady Patriots think they were in the game (Hazard had to make a strong run to win on the road). Hazard jumped out to the early lead in game one, and did not let up. The Lady Bulldogs went on to win by the final score of 25-10.
The win created a snowball effect as Hazard continued to roll. The Lady Bulldogs took game two by the final score of 25-8, and finished off the match with a 25-6 win.
Hope Clark (12 kills) and Sarah Pratt (19 assists) helped lead the way to the win.
Hazard stats: Sarah Pratt 1 kill, 19 assists and 5 aces, Hope Clark 12 kills and 10 aces, Andrea Stidham 3 kills and 1 ace, Marjorie Hammonds 6 kills, Ashleigh Bryant 4 kills and 1 assist, Brinkley Chitwood 5 digs, and Madison Gadbury 4 kills and 1 ace.
