Lady Hornets begin district play with straight-set win over Mexico

The Fulton Hornets volleyball team bested Mexico for the second time in four days, beating the Bulldogs in straight sets in the quarterfinals of the Class 3, District 9 play at Roger D. Davis Gymnasium on Monday. The Lady Hornets downed No. 7 seeded Mexico by scores of 25-16 and 25-7.

Junior defensive specialist Billie Klutts had three aces and two digs, senior middle blocker Corri Hamilton had five digs and two blocks and sophomore middle blocker Kendall Love had a block.

Fulton, the No. 2 seed, improved to 17-13-2 on the year and await North Central Missouri Conference foe Kirksville in Wednesday's semifinal.

The Lady Hornets were 2-1 against the Tigers in the regular season.

"Luckily, we have the home-court advantage and they have a 2-hour drive but I think it'll come down to who is tougher mentally," Fulton head coach Megan Youse said.

No. 3 seed Kirksville beat the No. 7 seed Southern Boone 25-16 and 25-9 on Monday night. Fulton and Kirksville play at 6:45 p.m. on Wednesday.
