In one of the best matches of the young season, Kerens held off Frost Tuesday night in a dramatic five-game match that saw Kerens come back to win the final two games.
Both teams had their moments, but Kerens survived, 21-25, 26-24, 23-25, 25-11, 15-7.
“We started out slow and finally turned on the heat in Games 4 and 5,’’ Kerens coach Kristen Lynch said.
Kerens is still unbeaten, but Frost, which was coming off winning the title in the Dawson Tournament over the weekend, showed why it may be the best team in its district later this season.
Kerens is now 4-0 and all the wins have been on the road. The Lady Cats were led at the net by Breanna Baxter (8 kills, 9 blocks) and Marqueshia Kelly (10 kills, 9 blocks). Baxter also had three digs and was 26-of-27 serving with two aces. Kelly had four digs.
Taylor Ames was 20-of-26 serving with two aces and had three kills, six blocks, four digs and led the team in assists with 22. Kayla Kilcrease was 8-for-10 serving and had 13 digs. Cambree Betts was 14-of-17 serving with an ace, and had three blocks, four digs and a kill. Tinesha Tolliver was 31-of-36 serving with four aces, and had 11 digs and three kills. Emmanuella Armant was 6-of-6 serving with an ace, and had seven blocks and a kill.
Kerens is in the Eustace Tournament on Thursday and Saturday.
Frost was led by Jae Moore, who had 10 kills, one block, six digs, and four aces, and Madison Revill, who had eight kills. Her coach Elaine Woods said, “she played a stellar game.’’
Heather Montgomery had three kills and two aces and Hillaree Schwartz did a little of everything. She had seven assists. four aces, two digs, a block and a kill.
Kaycee Bowling had 11 assists. a dig, an ace and a kill, and Maria Suaste had six digs.
Frost is now 5-2-1 and plays at Dawson in a non-district game on Friday.
