Last night the Rich Hill Lady Tigers traveled to Osceola for the Semi-finals in the district volleyball tournament. The Lady Tigers were coming off a hard fought three set win over the Lady Vikings from Lakeland on Monday night. In the semi finals the Tigers faced the Lady Bulldogs who were seeded number 2 for the tournament. The first set started off fast and furious with both teams determined to win. The Lady Tigers were trying to avenge an early loss this season to Appleton City. The game would continue to go back and forth with neither team giving any breathing room to the other. The final score was Rich Hill Lady Tigers 25 Appleton City 23. In the second set Rich Hill wanted to end it here and Appleton City knew a loss would send them home so the game was intense from the first serve. Appleton City took a early lead but the Lady Tigers refused to fold and fought back to keep it even. An injury forced the Tigers to go to the bench but the girls kept right on going. The team rallied together and the bench contributed a couple of phenomenal plays to win in two sets to advance to the championship game.
Wednesday October 25th during the parent teacher conferences Mrs. Nicholas and Mrs. Kassner from the Ellis Foundation will be in the HS computer lab to help any parent who wants to get started on the FAFSA application. The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
Rich Hill Volleyball won the first round of district play last night against Lakeland in three games. The girls will play Appleton City tonight at 5:45. A win against the Bulldogs will take the girls to the championship round. Good Luck Tigers!!
