When most people think of fall sports, football is the first thing that comes to mind. However, the high school volleyball season is also underway.

The Isabella Mustangs varsity volleyball team has gotten off to a good start this year with a 2-1 record coming into a Thursday night match-up with a Chilton County team still searching for its first win.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, they will have to continue looking for their first win, as the Mustangs would shut out the Tigers in three straight sets.

The Mustangs got off to a great start by starting the first set on a 16-0 run and would easily cruise to a 25-6 win in the best-of-five series.

The Tigers started Set 2 with an early 4-0 run before the Mustangs would tie things up at 4-all and go on a 10-3 run, ending the set at 25-13 and putting the Tigers down two sets to none.

Facing a match-deciding Set 3, the Tigers could do little to slow down the Mustangs. With both teams tied at 4-all, the Mustangs closed out the match on a 15-2 run, ending the third set and the match with a 25-10 win in Set 3.

The Mustangs were led by Erika Brascome with 10 kills, two blocks and four aces. Landy Griffith added seven kills and seven aces.

Mackenzy Right led the Tigers with 16 serves received, and Kyla Corley added five assists.

The Mustangs host a tournament this weekend that will get underway at 9 a.m. Saturday. LAMP, Akron, Horseshoe Bend and McAdory will all compete in the tournament.
