Hickory Flat came away with a Junior High and Junior Varsity victory over Ripley on Monday as the Varsity girls came up just short in a hard fought match.
The Lady Rebels Junior high and JV won in straight sets on the road over the 4A Lady Tigers.
In the varsity match, Hickory Flat fell in the first game 25-15 but got back to form quickly, winning the second set behind 4 aces and 3 kills from Emma Wilson. The third set was more of the same as the Lady Rebels again got above the net plays from Wilson, Erin Hancock and Kylie Gray and came away with a 25-15 victory.
In the 4th set, the Lady Tigers evened the score with a 25-12 win, setting up a decisive 5th set.
Ripley was able to defend their home court, coming away with a 15-11 match winning victory. Hickory Flat takes on Potts Camp next Tuesday as they look to get back in the win column.
