LAUREL HILL — Things are shaping up for Laurel Hill School’s volleyball team as it opens District 1-1A play at Central on Thursday.

The Hoboes are coming off a 2-2 showing in the Chipley tournament over the weekend. Monday they wrapped up a grueling stretch of nine matches in a little more than a week with a pair of wins over Rocky Bayou Christian and Florala, Ala.

Monday’s matches were a part of a three-team setup that had the Knights play the Wildcats and then the Hoboes. Laurel Hill and Florala finished the day’s play. The matches were the best two out of three rather than the normal three of five.

The Hoboes (8-4) beat Rocky Bayou 25-12, 25-17 and then finished off the day with a 25-16, 25-20 win over the Wildcats.

“We’ve played a total of about nine games in eight days so we’ve come together as a team and I like that,” Hobo coach Kent Zessin said. “The chemistry is really building up. We showed a little bit of that tonight, but we got sloppy at times.

“When we focused and played like we are supposed to play we did things right. We just lost our focus at times and we just have to do a better job and be more consistent throughout the whole entire game, but that will come.”

Lauren Gordon, Morgan Meeks and Ashley Hatfield paced the Hobo attack against Rocky Bayou.
