BAKER – There was plenty to celebrate for Baker volleyball players Haley Wagner, Katie Wickery, Kaitlyn Rickmon and Falin Lawson as they celebrated Senior Night on Tuesday as the Gators hosted Rocky Bayou Christian.

Surrounded by their family, friends and teammates, the seniors were honored prior to taking the floor for their final regular season match. And, has been the case more often than not in their careers the Gators went on to beat the Knights 3-0 by scores of 25-17, 25-19, 25-13.

Baker coach James Kerrell was relieved to see the curtain call for the seniors go off without a hitch.

“You always kind of worry with Senior Night and all the distractions about how they are going to come out and play,” he said. “But the girls came out and played solid and did what they had to do and it was a good solid win.”

Wagner and Wickery led the Baker attack against a stubborn Rocky Bayou squad.

Wickery had a team-best seven kills and nine digs to go along with seven assists and a pair of aces. Wagner had three kills, five digs, three aces and a block.

The seniors weren’t the only ones turning in a big night for Baker as the Gators closed out the regular season with a 20-2 record.
