After Paris High took the 15th ranked Pleasant Grove Lady Hawks to a thrilling five games last Friday, the game against North Lamar was shaping up to be a good one. The game, itself, didn't quite live up to the height, though, as North Lamar defeated Paris in three sets (25-15, 25-20, 25-20).

Karlie Ewell was dominant against Paris as she finished with 11 kills and went 17/17 from the service line. Bailey Foy continued her great play as well. Foy had 10 kills and 13 blocks (five solo). Haley Porter led the team with 28 assists on the night. 

The North Lamar JV defeated Paris in three back-and-forth games (23-25, 25-13, 25-21). Tatum Rekeita had 10 kills and eight digs. Emma Stewart finished with seven kills and 16 digs. Madelyn Clark had 16 assists and four digs while Kimber Scott had 15 assists for North Lamar.

The North Lamar Freshman defeated Paris 25-20 and 25-14. Skylar Coursey finished with four kills and five aces. Macie Pointer led the team with eight kills.

North Lamar will travel to Pleasant Grove on Friday night.
