Tiger volleyballers crush Travis in three

Nearly every player on the roster recorded time on the court Friday as the Dripping Springs Tigers opened district play with a 25-9, 25-11, 25-8 sweep of the Travis Rebels at Tiger Gym. 

Twelve Tiger players recorded at least one kill in the match with sophomore Madi Lund recording a game high nine kills. Freshman Maya Clausen finished with eight kills, while freshman Karley Sledge had seven kills. The Tigers only committed seven hitting errors out of 74 total kill attempts. 

Dripping Springs (26-10, 1-0) finished the match with nine aces; Haley Foster led the team with four. Tiger Alissa Johnson had 25 assists, while senior Sarah Nading finished with 15 assists. 

On the defensive side, the Tigers had 39 digs, including nine from junior Nicole Herbert and eight from Johnson. 

The Tigers, now ranked 4th in the Texas Girls Coaches Association’s Class 5A state poll, extends their win streak to five matches, dating back to late August. Dripping Springs has not dropped a set during that time period. 

The Tigers host LBJ Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Tiger Gym.
