Published 10:16am Thursday, October 3, 2013

The Dadeville Tigers improved to 14-5 on the year with a victory over 6A opponent Opelika this past Wednesday.The victory came despite the Tigers being shorthanded due to various outside commitments.
“I had a few girls that couldn’t make it, whether it was choir practice or whatever,” said Dadeville volleyball coach Sabrina Milligan. “But we were able to pull it out.”
Hallie Cocx continued her exceptional all-around play, leading Dadeville’s charge over the Bulldogs.
“She played unbelievable again,” Milligan said. “She was making blocks all by herself. We didn’t have to put anyone on the front line with her. She’s been playing the best volleyball of her life lately.”
In addition to Cocx, the Lady Tigers were able to get some production from members of the junior varsity team that were called into action due to absences.
“Maliyah Williams and Amaya Hatcher played really well for us,” Milligan said. “We only had six on our B-Team that we could choose from. But they came in and stepped up when we needed them to.”
Dadeville will travel to Central High School of Coosa County for a road match versus the Cougars on Thursday at 4:30p.m.
