Veterans honored six senior players and three senior managers during its Senior Night Tuesday.

Players were: Sydney Hudson, Sophia Lopez, Katie Reiff, Abigail Thompson, Abby Cross and Kelsey Medders. Managers were: Baylor Garret, Kaylyn Rourke and Grant Morgan.

The Lady Warhawks hosted two for the night, Jackson and Perry. They beat both. The first went down in sets. Jackson won the first 25-23. Veterans took the next two, 25-14 and 15-12. It swept Perry in two, 25-18, 25-16.

Reiff helped lead the offense with 18 kills. Sydney Jones had seven. Lopez contributed 28 assists. Hannah Gardner and Kaylee Jones had six aces each. Hudson and Cross led the defense with nine digs each.

With three weeks left in the regular season, the Warhawks are “well-positioned” for the postseason tournament, said Coach Marlene Rogers. “Based upon the results of the 5A Region 1 seeding playdate held Sept. 12 at Ware County, Veterans will be seeded first in the region tournament.”

The Lady Warhawks went 3-0 during that venue. They beat Ware County 25-16, 25-17, Wayne County 25-11, 25-16 and Warner Robins 27-25, 25-22. Cross led the defense in that last matchup with 27 digs. Hudson had 20 whereas Reiff led the offense with 19 kills and 13 aces.

Madi Townson also contributed 16 kills and Lopez put up 35 assists.

The region tournament will be hosted by Warner Robins Oct. 10.
