UGMS 8th Grade Volleyball




The 8th grade grizzly volleyball teams traveled to play the Live Oak Ridge Lobos last night to begin their volleyball conference play.

The B team defeated the Lobos in two straight sets 25 -10 and 25-11 to win their first conference game and improve their over-all record to 5 and 0.  Top server of the match was Cassandra Vazquez with 10 points.   Kanaiya Blackmon added an impressive 8 points.  Rounding out the scoring was Keni Moore with 6 points; Micayla Reeves and Savannah Seldon had 2 points each; Shakira Shackleford and Lauren Grover served for 1 point each.

Jocelyn Deaton had the only kill of the match.

The B team will compete in the first round of the KISD B team Volleyball Tournament on Thursday at Smith MS with the match starting at 6:30 pm.   The tournament will continue on Saturday at Killeen HS.


The A team played with confidence and poise their first set to defeat the Lobos 25-17.  The Grizzlies played the next two sets with determination but the Lobos were able to squeeze by with the win defeating the Grizzlies 22-25 and 21-25.

Despite this loss the ladies played their best offensive match of the season with several pass, set spike volleys.   Great back row passes were made by Jasmine Johnson, Aryana Martin and Rozalyn Simmons which resulted in kills by Mary Allen, Alexandria Cloud, Lilly Sanchez and Temiya Johnson.  Heads up net plays were made by Evan Fuller.  Team spirit and hustle was demonstrated by Janae Deauvearo.

Top server of the night was Aryana Martin with 15 points.  Mary Allen had 10 points.  Alexandria Cloud served for 7.  Karly Hansen had 5 points while Temiya Johnson had 4.

The ladies have a 0-1 conference record and a 4 and 4 season record.

Both teams will play their next conference match and PINK OUT match at UGMS on Monday October 23rd against the Patterson Cavaliers.    We hope you will come out and support the Grizzlies.   LET’S SPIKE CANCER!
