The Lady Tigers hold steady at 17-17 and 5-4 in third place in District 10-3A with four matches left to play.

“We played complacent,” said Rockdale Coach Jnnifer Keen. “ I think we thought we were going to walk in and take an easy win and that wasn’t the case. Our passing was not where it needed to be and our offense was too inconsistent.

“We are going to go back to the drawing board and adjust some things that we are doing and figure out a way to get refocused moving into the remainder of our games.”

Rogers leads the district, followed by Academy, Rockdale and Jarrell.

The Lady Tigers fell to Lexington 13-25, 25-22, 25-21, 25-17 Tuesday night on the road as Hanna Jimenez punched out 11 kills with four digs as Lyndsey Kolar slammed four kills and two aces.

Reese Weise dished up 19 assists and five digs, Emma Pickett nine assists and Kaylee Criswell four digs and two blocks.

Rockdale was swept out by Academy 25-14, 26-24, 25-14 on the road Friday.

Weise squeezed off eight assists and two service aces, Pickett had 10 assists, Jimenez seven kills and one dig, Criswell two blocks, Kolar six kills and Kylie Eubanks four assists.
