BRIDGE CITY —
A clean sweep.
That’s what the Orangefield Lady Bobcats accomplished through District 21-3A play.
The 21-3A champion Lady Bobcats wrapped up the regular season by defeating the Bridge City Lady Cardinals 25-16, 25-21, 25-10 to finish a perfect 12-0 in 21-3A play.
The Lady Cardinals (5-7 in district), battled hard, particularly in the second game, but it wasn’t enough to thwart the very experienced Lady Bobcats.
Jennifer McManus paced the Lady Bobcats (26-5). She finished with 13 kills and had nine service points and two aces.
Taylor Benoit posted six kills for Orangefield. Marisa Bishop had five kills. Morgan Moss and Sammi Burgess had four kills apiece. Rylie Granger had three kills and set up the offense well yet again while standout libero Kacey LeBlanc had another strong defensive outing and had two kills.
Sophomore Alexus Henry had a solid outing for the Lady Cardinals, finishing with a team-high nine kills. Jessi Glover had five kills for Bridge City while Hannah McAnelly had four and Katie Laird added three.
Holly Granger and Megan Burton served up 12 points apiece for the Lady Bobcats. Granger had three aces while Burton had two. Orangefield finished with 11 aces while Bridge City had just one.
Haleigh Turley had five points and an ace for Orangefield while Granger had four points and two aces and LeBlanc added three points and an ace.
Baili Thibodaux had six points for the Lady Cardinals. Henry and Sarah Acosta had four points apiece. Destiny Ewing had three points while Olivia Bass had two points and an ace.
The Lady Cardinals led Game One 11-9 but the Lady Bobcats stormed back to take it by scoring 16 of the next 21 points.
Bridge City snared a 10-6 edge early in Game Two. Trailing 17-16, the Lady Bobcats tallied six of the next seven points and then held off the Lady Cardinals.
Orangefield dominated the Game Three action as they jumped out to a 9-2 edge and then ran off eight out of the next 10 points to snag a commanding 17-4 cushion.
The UIL state Class 3A volleyball playoffs will start next week with the bidistrict round Monday and Tuesday. The Lady Bobcats will have a bye that round and will play in the area round sometime between Nov. 1-3 against either the runnerup out of District 24-3A or the third-place team from District 23-3A.
