Lauren Henderson earns All-State honorable mention

By Jay Davis

After leading the Lady Tigers to sixth in state, junior Lauren Henderson has been named honorable mention to the Class A All-State Volleyball Team.
“It’s an honor to have someone from our team to be picked on the all-state team and Lauren is very deserving of the honor,” said Lady Tiger coach Rose Henderson. “She strives to be the best player she can and she does this by working hard in practice and going the extra mile by participating in camps out of season. It shows in her season stats as she led our team in kills and blocks and was third in digs.”
Henderson was the leading hitter for the Lady Tigers from her middle hitter position, where she scored 235 kills. As a defender, Henderson had 89 blocks and 179 digs. She did her part serving with 31 aces. “Way to go, Lauren,” said Henderson, “What an awesome honor.”
The Region 6A champion Lady Tigers finished the season with a 24-8 record.
