The Pantherettes only real problem Tuesday night was their own mistakes. North Lamar committed 12 serving errors in their three-set sweep over the Kilgore Lady Bulldogs. North Lamar defeated fourth place team coming out of district 16-4A 25-18, 25-18 and 25-17.

"They will correct it," Coach Kathy Barker said of her team's errors.

North Lamar, the first place team in district 15-4A had five players with at least five kills in the game. Bailey Foy led the team with 10. Bailee Nickerson had nine while Bill Jones and Sydney Foy each finished with seven. Karlie Ewell had five for Coach Barker's Pantherette team.

The Foy sisters along with Bill each had four total blocks to lead the team. Haley Porter led the team with 19 assists. North Lamar will now face Rains in the Area round of the playoffs. That game will be played Thursday night at 6:30 in Greeneville.
