Last week in Lambert sports: Week 1 and 2


Lambert softball has had a solid two weeks. They are 6-3 through these first two weeks.

    The week of August 7, 2017 was the start of a brand new year for Lambert athletics. The girls have dominated the headlines for the last two weeks.


Volleyball: Last week had volleyball players working around the clock playing a total of five games in just two days. They participated in a Friday neutral tournament where they played River Ridge and Brookwood. Lambert pulled out on top in both games with a score of two sets won to the opposing team’s zero sets won. On the attack Ally Hall led both games with the most kills, racking up a total 16.


The following day Lambert again won both games 2-0 in similar fashion. Ally Hall led the attack, with Amanda Sinning providing 11 serving aces. Bella Tolone stole six spikes from the opposing FPCA Highlanders which translates into six digs. Lael White was feeling especially generous adding up 10 assists for her team that greatly contributed to the Lambert win. The next game against Columbus was mainly won by defense. Lambert had six solo blocks vs Columbus’ zero. However, the attack still pulled through giving Lambert the edging victory making them 4-0 on the season.


Going up against the undefeated Pope resulted in a exciting game. Lambert grabbed the first set by a score of 25-23 making it their sixth consecutive set won. During the second set though, Pope was able to reverse the score onto their side, winning it 25-23, as well. Both teams attack and defense were on their A-game, but sadly Pope was able to steal the third and final set by a score of 15-11. All in all, Lambert’s Volleyball team can easily call this week a win by ending it all with a winning record of 4-1.


Softball: The Softball program kicked off their year with two wins and two losses at the Peachtree Ridge Tournament. They had their first game against the Peachtree Ridge Lions, which they won with a final score of 7-2. The star of this game was Brooke Miller as she went three and four with two runs and one RBI. Ansley Dean had a solid day as well with three RBI’s. The next game did not go as planned when the Longhorns took the loss to the Social Circle Redskins with a score of 4-2. Lambert tried to make a comeback in the sixth inning but they came up short.


The next game was much closer but the Longhorns took the loss once again while losing to the Buford Wolves 6-5. A late rally by the Wolves doomed Lambert as they allowed 3 runs in the last inning. The last game of the tournament was against the Evans Knights. Lambert crushed the Knights with a score of 11-0. The Longhorns got out to a huge lead, 10-0 after the second inning, and this put the Knights in a hole that was far too big to climb out of. Multiple girls had more than two RBI’s and Kassidy Krupit had a HR. Brooke Miller had a complete game with a no hits and three strikeouts.


The week of August 14, 2017 was a series of double headers for the volleyball and softball players.


Softball: After the tournament ended on August 12, the Longhorns played at the GADC Leadoff Classic. Their first game was against the Wesleyan Wolves and they pulled out the victory with an 8-3 win. Lambert was in a hole early losing 3-0, but they rallied behind a strong performance from Kassidy Krupit. The ladies played on August 18 twice and won both of the games. They routed the Ware County Gators with a score of 15-0. They also beat the Pinewood Christian Patriots with a score of 8-2. They also played another two games on August 19. They split the two games 1-1 as they crushed Johns Creek 19-4 and they lost 7-0 to Lovett.


Volleyball: This season is off to a fast and great start. The girls were able to take home yet another two wins in a doubleheader on Tuesday. The first game against Woodstock was won by the team’s defense. The offense was able to keep up scoring constantly while the defense was able to hold Woodstock to just 13 and 14 points out of 2 of the three sets. That same night Lambert challenged Woodstock and beat them by a large margin. Again defense came in strong and held Gilmore to just only 9 points in the two sets. As of now Lambert’s volleyball team has an outstanding record of 6-1.
