Lady Blues defeat Krum, earn trip to regional quarterfinals
After the Lady Blues’ victory over Gatesville in the bi-district championship coach Marci Faulk said it would take a near-perfect effort against Krum. A near-perfect effort is what she received as the Lady Blues defeated Krum 3-1 to advance to the regional quarterfinals for the first time since 2017.
The Lady Blues gained confidence early in their rematch from the 2019 area championships by jumping ahead 9-4 and forcing the Lady Cats into an early timeout. Addison Kimberling and Rachel Grimsley each had kills. The run was compounded by six errors by Krum.
Out of the timeout, the Lady Blues continued to expand their lead. They outscored Krum at a 9-5 pace before a second timeout. Back-to-back kills from Hannah Isom as well as an ace from Lily Gregory led to the stoppage.
