Elgin Summary

Elgin Summary
By GALEN WELLNICKI
  It won’t be Gary Cooper reaching for his six-shooter at High Noon on a dusty street in a western town, but Georgetown and Hutto will be facing a 6:30 p.m. Friday shootout in the District 18-5A volleyball chase on the hardwoods of Eagle Gym.
  If the Lady Hippos win, they will take a two-game lead over the Lady Eagles in the district race with each school having four 18-5A matches remaining before the bi-district round of the Class 5A playoffs.  Hutto, 7-0 in district and 31-8 for the season, came from behind to down Georgetown, 3-1, in the first meeting between the two on Tuesday, Sept. 11.
  If the Lady Eagles prevail, it will pull  GHS into a 7-1 deadlock with the Lady Hippos.  Georgetown stands 26-12 on the season, including this past Tuesday’s 3-0 sweep of Elgin at Eagle Gym.  If they lose, Georgetown will retain a slight lead over third-place East View, which takes its bye from 18-5A on Friday.
   The showdown matches two teams ranked in the Texas Girls Coaches Association Class 5A Top 25 — No. 17 Hutto and No. 21 Georgetown.
   Looking at the Lady Hippos and Lady Eagles in more detail. Hutto has swept five of seven district opponents, winning 21 of 23 sets, and Georgetown has swept four 18-5A matches and has won 19 of 24 sets in those contests.
   GHS coach Jenny Richardson was pleased with the Lady Eagles performance against the Lady Wildcats that played out to sets of 25-8, 25-11 and 25-10.
   “I feel we played a real good match,” Richardson said. “We wanted to play a disciplined game and we did. Our offense played well and we were dominant at the net. Every serve was good and when you do that, you can win a lot of volleyball games.”
   Richardson pointed to 5-foot-9 junior Ivey Weber (10 kills) and 6-0 junior McKenna Mokry (6 kills) for leading an offense that had a .481 hitting percentage with 54.4 kill efficiency (43 of 78). Junior Brianna Stovall also recorded six kills on a night when the GHS coach played everybody but two injured players — standout junior setter Emery Herman (ankle) and senior front-row performer Maddie Shock (upper body).
   Other statistical leaders for GHS were junior Taelyn Jones and Stovall with two aces each, senior Kristin Jones with 22 digs and Stovall figuring in three blocks.
   In the opening set, GHS jumped to a 7-1 lead and took the advantage into double digits with an ace by the 5-10 Stovall. The final margin of 17 points was the largest of the set, which ended on a kill by Mokry.
   GHS held a 5-4 lead early in set two, but went on a run of seven consecutive points — six on a service set by T. Jones. The Lady Eagles led by 14 points three times lare before the set point came on a wide Elgin serve.
   Georgetown closed out the match with a dominant third set that ended on another Elgin service error.
   After playing Hutto, the Eagles will travel to Bastrop at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
   In sub-varsity action, Georgetown remained unbeaten in district on both the JV and Freshman levels at 7-0. The JV won, 25-12, 25-10, and the first-year Lady Eagles took a 25-15, 25-18 win. The JV is 16-6 on the season.
