Desoto Times Tribune > Sports > Lewisburg Tops Horn Lake

The match was the season opener for Horn Lake. The two squads battled back and forth in set one before Lewisburg held on for the first set victory. Set two also was contested closely with Lewisburg holding a 10-9 lead early in the set. The Lady Patriots won two of the next three points for a 12-10 edge, but Horn Lake brought the set back to 15-14 Lewisburg. The Lady Pats would win 10 of the final 15 points for a 25-19 win and a 2-0 lead in the match. Lewisburg came out roaring in the third set, winning the first five points before Horn Lake coach Janna Thompson would call a timeout. The Lady Patriots continued to hold off Horn Lake before Alexyse Thomas block at the net gave Horn Lake the serve, trailing 16-10. The block seemed to spur the Lady Eagles, who then rallied to take the lead at 20-18 after a rally ball ended in the net. Lewisburg would come back with a service ace from Hannah Waddell to tie the set at 20-20 and win the last five points to finish off the match. First year Lewisburg coach Gary Hentz said he saw improvement in his team from a 3-0 loss to open the season earlier in the week at home against DeSoto Central. Tuesday was not what we were hoping for, losing in three sets, although they (DeSoto Central) are really good, one of the best teams in the state, Hentz said. This was a really comforting turnaround to take it 3-0 going into the weekend, going to Jackson (Set-It-Off Tournament) and playing some really good teams. Thompson was proud of the way her team competed against Lewisburg, considered a strong Class 5-A club. I think they made a little noise tonight, Thompson said. So just the fact that were competing and hopefully going to get better, Im excited.

Hornish hoping to finally win in his home state – Yahoo Sports

”All that being said, I feel pretty good about the car that I have.” Hornish, with no fulltime sponsor but driving this week for Joe Gibbs Racing in the Monster Energy Toyota, has dreamed of winning at the twisting track located in picturesque farmland midway between Columbus and Cleveland. His odds improved when Allmendinger elected to focus on the Sprint Cup race in Michigan this weekend. Hornish was third during Friday’s practice behind Justin Marks and Chris Buescher. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/hornish-hoping-finally-win-home-212640031–nascar.html
