Van’Go’photo This week was huge for Buffalo volleyball, and the Lady Bison answered with a big win over Trinity to remain in playoff contention. Buffalo also picked up a non-district win over Wortham prior to the homecoming football game.

Both teams were 1-1 in district play when the Lady Bison and the Trinity Tigers took the floor. It was a match for the record books as Buffalo slipped away with a five set win 16-25, 25-19, 25-21, 8-25, 15-13. The Lady Bison and New Waverly are 2-1 in district play while Anderson- Shiro and Centerville are undefeated at 3-0.

Karlee Ferguson served for eleven points, including six aces. Brooke Trahan and Kylan Ferguson served for eight and seven points, respectively. The two setters also combined for twentyfour assists in the match.

Kaila Grissett put on an exhibition offensively, nailing twenty-kills in twentythree swings. Meredith Shaw downed seven kills, and Desiree Worthy added five. Jordyn Briscoe landed three kills, served four aces and contributed twelve digs. Lindsay McGill scrambled for sixteen digs in the match.

Worthy also provided four blocks in the match. Karlee Ferguson, Kylan Ferguson, Shaw, and Grissett came up with one block.

The Wortham match was squeezed in between the pep rally and senior walk Friday. The Lady Bison have six seniors on the team who were scheduled in the pre-game activities. Buffalo remained focused on the goal of winning the match in three sets, and did just that, 25-22, 25- 19, 25-17. The Lady Bulldogs were scrappy, and did not give in easily.

Grissett returned to the serving line up after nursing an injury, and led the team with thirteen service points. Briscoe and Kylan Ferguson served for nine and eight, respectively. Briscoe played one of her best matches of the season, landing eleven kills and serving three aces. She also contributed ten digs and scored on a block. Grissett nailed nine kills and recorded nine digs. She also had three aces and a block. Shaw landed four kills in only seven swings. Kylan Ferguson and Erica Jones each managed two kills while Tristan Brewer and Karlee Ferguson added one each. Brewer, playing a stint at middle blocker in the absence of Worthy, came up with two big blocks.

The Lady Bison host Groveton on Tuesday and Onalaska on Friday. Buffalo will wrap up the first half of district play the following week with matches against Centerville and New Waverly. RIGHT: Senior Tristan Brewer goes high for a block for the Lady Bison. Van’Go’photo
