LaFayette Ramblers

The sixth-ranked LaFayette Ramblers closed out a 4-2 regular season mark in Area 6-AAAA play with a pair of home wins on Senior Night Tuesday night in south Walker County.

LaFayette (34-10) scored a 25-22, 25-11 victory over Gilmer before dispatching Southeast Whitfield, 25-19 and 25-18.

Seniors Katie Dixon and Emily Redden showed out for the Orange-and-Black. Dixon had 17 kills and 19 digs, while Redden finished with 42 assists, six digs and three aces.

"Katie is one of the most skilled players in the area," head coach Chris Logan said. "She does all of the little things right and is producing solid numbers in every area. Emily has been a huge leader and has set the tone for many big games. I'm glad we've got some games left with them. We're definitely going to miss them next year."

Gracie Stier returned to the lineup after recovering from a sprained ankle and had seven digs and three kills, while Bailey Tarvin collected 18 digs and five aces. Jillian Morgan had 17 kills, seven aces and six digs, while Blakely Lankford collected a dozen digs.

Other standouts included Elaina Kirkendoll (2 kills, 1 block), Darsey Shields (3 digs, 3 kills), Sarah Ray (5 kills, 5 blocks) and Michaela Hobbs (3 digs, 1 ace).

LaFayette's JV team will play in a tournament at Coahulla Creek on Saturday. The varsity club will join Christian Heritage on Tuesday for a 5 p.m. tri-match at Ringgold in the regular season finale.

The Area 6-AAAA tournament will begin next Thursday and conclude on Saturday.
