Highland Park kept up its solid start to the year

winning two big matches during a triangular at the Caprock Activity Center on Tuesday night.

The Lady Hornets won the first match against Class 4A Canyon in a come-from-behind five-set thriller, 27-25, 18-25, 21-25, 25-14, 16-14. Highland Park fell behind only to rally back in the final two sets. In the night cap, the Lady Hornets (17-7 overall) quickly regrouped to sweep Class 5A Caprock, 25-22, 25-19, 25-13.

Outside hitter hitter Nevaeh Rodriguez was stellar in both matches totaling 42 kills, 26 of those against Canyon, with 20 digs and seven aces.

Teammate Mercedes Harton 9 handed out a combined 64 assists in both victories.

The No. 2-ranked Hereford Lady Whitefaces backed their state ranking by going on the road and earning a hard fought five-set win at very talented Lubbock-Cooper, 22-25, 25-16, 25-11, 23-25, 17-15.

The Lady Whitefaces had a 2-1 lead during the match, however, the Lady Pirates forced a fifth set. Down the stretch Hereford (29-2) showed its resiliency putting the match away to break an 11-11 tie to go on for the 17-15 victory.

Middle blocker Taytum stow was a force as usual knocking down a game-high 25 kills with four blocks. Teammate Bonnie Vallejo finished with a double-double hitting the floor for 18 digs, adding 10 kills.
