“M-U-S-K-O-GEE. DOUBLE E MUSKOGEE ROUGHERS!” The Roughers chant as they fall into position across the net from the Broken Arrow Lady Tigers. They may be the Roughers, but the Lady Tigers were the ones who made it rough for Muskogee on September 8.

It was just another Tuesday for any other student in school, but for the Lady Tigers it was something else: it was game day. Game day is a highly anticipated day for any student athlete out there. As the Lady Tigers boarded the bus to Muskogee, the excitement level was high. In the past, a win against Muskogee had been a piece of cake; however, the Lady Tigers did not want to take this game too lightly. Senior Lindsay Derricot had high hopes for the game.

“Our expectation for this game is to play hard and come out with a win,” Derricot said.

The first set of the game had been all about aggressiveness and power. Senior Taylor Bailey and junior Mia Bledsoe led the offense with amazing kills that pummeled the Lady Roughers defense. When the Lady Roughers fought back with their offense, senior Claire Turner was right where she was supposed to be at defense and was able to pass perfect passes to the setter. Lady Tigers won this set with a score of 25-19.

The aggressive energy seemed to simmer down, however, in the second set. With the Lady Tigers heads held a little too high, they seemed to think that this second set would be a breeze. The Lady Roughers took advantage of this and started to gain points on the Lady Tigers’ mistakes. The energy near the end of the game became very intense and the score was very close, but Broken Arrow ended up following this set with another win at 25-20.

By the third set, the Lady Tigers were even more determined to achieve a win. This time the tension was gone and the sensation of reassurance of winning had come over each and every player. The score was 25-18 by the end of the set, and the Lady Tigers had added another win to their 14-5 record.

“Our intensity and how we didn’t play selfish really helped us win the game,” Bailey said.

Bailey collectively had 10 kills along with 3 blocks while Mia Bledsoe led the hitting stats with 17 kills. Claire Turner had a team high of 19 digs and Kamryn Smith added on 6 digs.
