The Ohatchee volleyball team’s strong start to the season continued Saturday as the Lady Indians got all the way to finals of the Supreme Courts Tournament before suffering their first loss to the season in the title match, 2-0 to Guntersville.

The Lady Indians (9-1) beat St. Clair County, Spring Garden, Boaz, Oneonta and DAR before losing to the Lady Wildcats 25-14, 22-25.

“My girls played absolutely lights out all day long,” Ohatchee coach Rebecca Hughes said. “I was so proud of them for coming out and dominating so well.

“We basically ran out of gas towards the end and couldn’t get anything going for us against a really good Guntersville team.”

Jorda Crook had 74 kills, 21 blocks, 22 digs and six aces in the tournament for the Lady Indians.
