SEVEN SPRINGS – The Hobbton Wildcat volleyball team traveled to Spring Creek Thursday, getting losses in both JV and varsity. The Lady Wildcat varsity is now o-6. The Wildcats had some great play by several young ladies, as Arianna Corbett’s play was outstanding.

After losing the first two sets to Spring Creek, 25-20 and 25-9, Hobbton fought back in the third set, 25-21, before giving up the fourth set to Spring Creek, 25-19.

Statistically, Kameron Lee had three aces, Delaney Thornton had eight kills, Laken Stewart had two blocks, Sarah Suggs with three aces, Abby King had one block, Sarah Daughtry had five kills and Arianna Corbett had 16 kills.

The JV lost 2-1, winning the first set 25-17. However, Spring Creek took the second and third sets, 25-17 and 25-14.

For the Wildcats, Jada Parker had two blocks, four aces from Laney Pope and five kills from Emily Sneed.

“She finally got up on that net,” said Coach Tori Reynolds about Corbett.

“Our JV started out strong, however, we lost it with our serves and our passing,” continued Reynolds. “Basically they played well as a team, communicating more.”

“The varsity started off weak, but came back strong. They played Hobbton volleyball and finally figured out what we were doing,” she continued. “The girls worked really well together covering each other. They called the ball, smiled and actually had some fun tonight.”

The Wildcats will host Rosewood on Tuesday to start conference play.
