In the most recent Texas Girls Coaches Association Volleyball Poll, the Wortham Lady Bulldogs are ranked No. 30 in Class 2A with a 25-12 record, but it's actually 31-12 after this "dark horse" of a team - one of the comments made in the poll this past Monday - knocked down and swept the No. 10 Frost Lady Polar Bears, 25-13, 25-19, 25-16, Monday night.
Right now this team has the capability of going deep into the Class 2A playoffs, especially the way their front line of Elisha Libhart, Kate Vogel and Trinity Shivers is playing.
Against Frost, Libhart, Vogel and Shivers combined for 29 kills and 15 blocks. Libhart also had 10 digs, was 14-15 serving with two aces, Vogel had eight digs and was perfect at the service line (10-10) and Shivers hit on seven of eight serves in the match.
"Our girls are continually outhustling our opponents," said coach Johnny Ward.
