Kemp Lady Yellowjacket Kandace Rose (14) goes up to block a hit by Edgewood Lady Bulldog Chelsey King (4) during Edgewood's 3-0 win over the hosting Lady Yellowjackets Tuesday.

The Lady ’Jackets fell 3-0 to the hosting Cross Roads Lady Bobcats Aug. 13 by 25-13, 25-14 and 25-15.
New Kemp coach Kelly Grady’s old team, the Scurry-Rosser Lady Wildcats, came calling and defeated the Lady ’Jackets 3-1, winning the first two games 25-20 and 25-9 before the Kemp girls rallied to take a 25-20 win in the third game.
Scurry-Rosser took the deciding fourth game 25-6.
At home Tuesday night, the Lady ’Jackets had trouble containing Edgewood’s Susan Agesen, who racked up 13 kills, four aces and two digs to lead the Lady Bulldogs to a 3-0 win, 25-12, 25-15 and 25-7.
“We are getting there, but it’s a long process,” Grady said later. “These girls work so hard for me, and I am sure that if I asked them to serve backwards, they would try to do so.
“Our motto is ‘get better every day’, and we are working on that,” Grady added.

Mabank Lady Panther Brittany Findley makes a hit during Mabank's 3-0 loss to the visiting District 10-5A Naaman Forest Lady Rangers Tuesday.

Veteran Mabank coach Stacy Shelton traditionally seeks a killer non-district schedule, and through Tuesday night, the Lady Panthers had yet to face a 3A team.
Tuesday night, the taller and more athletic Naaman Forest Lady Rangers handled a scrappy Lady Panther squad 3-0, winning 25-17, 25-17 and 25-21.
That third game was highlighted by a seven-point Mabank run behind the serving of senior Megan Royal, which gave the Lady Rangers some anxious moments late in the contest.
After the Lady Rangers crushed District 15-4A’s West Mesquite, the Lady Panthers handled their one-time district foe 3-0, winning 25-17, 25-16 and 25-16.
Tuesday’s split followed a 2-4 showing at the Garland Invitational tournament last weekend.
Mabank opened with a 2-0 loss to District 3-5A Midland Lee Lady Rebels, 25-21 and 25-8.
They followed that with a 2-1 loss to the McKinney North Lady Bulldogs of District 10-4A, falling in the first game 25-15 before rallying to take the second game 25-19, forcing a deciding third contest, which McKinney North won 25-14.
The Lady Panthers then put together back-to-back wins over Dallas Skyline’s Lady Raiders of District 9-5A and West Mesquite.
Mabank knocked off Skyline 25-18 and 25-17 before taking care of the Lady Wranglers, 25-15 and 25-12.
Two more narrow losses were to come at the Garland tournament, as the Lady Panthers fell 2-1 to former district foe Forney and then fell 2-1 to Cedar Hill.
The District 15-4A Forney Lady Jackrabbits took the opening game 25-19, but the Lady Panthers came back to take a 26-24 win in the second game. Forney took the deciding third game 25-18.
Against the District 5-5A Cedar Hill Lady Longhorns, the Lady Panthers again fell in the opener, 25-10, only to rally for a 26-24 win in the second game. The Lady Longhorns won the deciding third game 25-20.
