GEN­TRY — The Gen­try Lady Pi­o­neer vol­ley­ball team hosted Shiloh Chris­tian on Thurs­day, Sept. 7. The girls lost, but they played their hard­est and kept Shiloh’s score close.

“We knew what we needed to work on to get stronger as a team, and we prac­ticed all week on it,” said fresh­man Han­nah Jackson. “Dur­ing the game, we got to see the pos­i­tive ef­fect of what we had been work­ing on, and we held our own against them,” she added

The girls lost by scores of 25-14, 25-19 and 25-14.

The game was a good learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, and the Lady Pioneers are proud of how they played.

“Af­ter the game as we high-fived and said ‘good game,’ the Shiloh coach told us we made them play for the win and it was a game both teams de­served,” Jackson said.

The girls’ next game was at Prairie Grove on Tues­day (af­ter press time).

On Tues­day, Sept. 5, the Gen­try Lady Pioneers played the Elkins Lady Elks. Though the girls played to their full po­ten­tial and it was a tough game, the girls lost.

“Even though we lost, we still played as a team,” said sopho­more Madi­son Stan­fill. “We worked to­gether, com­mu­ni­cated and gave it our all.”

The Gen­try girls lost to Elkins, 25-18, 25-14 and 25-16.
