Lady Net Dogs Advance to Sweet Sixteen for Fourth Straight Year

Lyons, GA – October 20, 2022 | Coach Terry Goodwin

The Toombs County Lady Net Dogs traveled to Augusta on Wednesday to play in the first round of the State Tournament against Richmond County Technical Career and Magnet School.

After a slow start and being down 0-5 in the first set, the Lady Net Dogs turned it on and picked up the victory winning three straight sets. The turnaround started when McKenzie Kilgore served 5 straight service points for the Net Dogs to make it 6-5. From there, the Dogs would win the first set 25-23. The second and third sets were all Toombs County with the Dogs winning 25-13 and 25-11.

Kilgore would finish the night with 8 service points and 1 ace, but it was the first five points that provided the spark that Toombs needed to advance to the second round.

Anabel Cruz would end the day with 13 service points, 5 aces, 11 assists, and 2 digs. Vivianna Rodriguez had 15 service points with 3 aces. Zariaha Newkirk had 9 service points, 2 aces, 1 block, 3 digs, and 7 kills. Others that contributed on the afternoon were Sarah Morris (5 kills), Anna Patrick (4 kills, 1 block, and 1 assist), Martasia Burton (9 assists), Makayla Brewton (3 digs and 1 kill), Kortney Mahone (3 digs and 1 ace), Scarlett Stanley (3 service points, 1 ace, and 2 kills), Arianna Hill (2 kills), and Maddie Brown (1 Dig and 1 kill).

Congratulations to the Seniors as they are the first Toombs County Lady Net Dogs senior group to advance to the sweet 16 four years in a row.

The Lady Net Dogs advance to a match on Saturday against ACE Charter School in Macon. The match time has not been set at this point.
