Tommie Sledge and her Lady War Eagle Volleyball squad are the best kept secret at Oak Ridge high school. SHHH, don’t tell anyone because we don’t wanna jinx ’em.

It seems as if the major fuss early in the school year has been that “Oak Ridge football” and “winning” have been used in the same sentence four weeks in a row. You should already know this….. If not because you have been presumably off of the planet, just brace yourself because the football team is going to keep on winning. Oh, you need some smelling salts?

As for Oak Ridge Volleyball, they win all the time anyway so just kick back and keep enjoying them. Presently, the ladies are 19-6 and 1-1 in the district.

The Ridge is coming off of an impressive win over Magnolia and have an away tilt with the Lady Tigers of Conroe tonight.

Victoria Harris leads the team in kills with 373. Brooke Clarke and Hannah Wehring have 184 and 80 respectively.

Jaclyn Ward leads the team in aces with 35 followed closely by Nikki Testerman with 34 and Clarke with 33.

Up front… Morgan McCoy leads the team in Blocks with 13.

As for digs, human zamboni and Libero, Whitney Wofford has a whopping 324. Harris has 289 and Clark with 205.

The most generous player on the team with 424 assists is Ward… Wofford has 146.

Victoria Harris leads the district in hitting percentage at 363. You’re thinking…is that good? Yes, that number is excellent in baseball and also good in volleyball.

The top of the District 14-5A standings reads like this:

TWHS: 27-0, 3-0

TWCP: 16-7, 2-0

A&M  : 17-12, 1-1

ORHS: 19-6, 1-1

Stay tuned for more Oak Ridge volleyball success!

Doug Sarant, Oak Ridge Now

Born and raised in New England, Doug promises he got to Texas as fast as he could. He earned the much needed "piece of paper" from Sam Houston State, proving to himself he could start and finish something. Doug's interests include coaching and playing any sport and still plays lacrosse competitively. He also enjoys going to dinner theaters, though he complains there just aren't enough of them in the area. Doug was brought up in a cultured environment, having suffered through dozens of symphonies and operas with his way too over-educated mother. At the end of the day, Doug is just a dad and husband and claims to be good at both.
