The Wortham Lady Bulldogs didn’t come away empty handed at the Groesbeck Varsity Volleyball Tournament held over this past weekend (Aug. 22-24).

The team ended up in the consolation finals where they defeated the Coolidge Lady Yellow Jackets, 25-22, 25-10, taking home a trophy in what head coach Johnny Ward saw as a valiant effort on his girl’s part, especially after their match with Grandview Saturday morning.

“We played very well against them,” Ward said. “Although we did not come out on top, I was pleased with everyone’s play.”
Grandview swept Wortham, 25-23, 25-20, 25-12.
