She may not have scored as many points as her dad (Wilando "Chop") or her uncles (Kenny and Hollis) or aunt (Beverly) did at Taylor County High School in basketball, but Teona Bridgewater does not have to take a back seat to her relatives when it comes to her domination of a high school volleyball match.


Bridgewater shined brightly as Taylor County improved to 3-0 vs. 18th District foes and 4-1 overall with a 25-20, 25-12 triumph at cross-town rival Campbellsville on Monday night in Paul J. Coop Gymnasium.

After a fierce volley to start the match, Taylor County used three Bridgewater serves to lead 3-0.

However, Campbellsville took a 6-4 advantage on three consecutive serve points from Mary Brower.

But Taylor County, which has defeated its three district foes on the road, reeled off eight straight points, seven coming on serves from Maridith Willett.

The Lady Eagles (1-5) crept within 20-15 on a serve by Anna Haley and two by Miranda Willis, but Taylor County's lead was too large and they held on for the five-point, first-match victory.

Seven straight serves by Hope Wigginton propelled the Lady Cardinals to a 12-5 second-set start.

Bridgewater put the game away with three kills and four serves before Ashley Hatfield's serve was the match winner.

The Lady Cardinals also triumphed in the junior varsity match 21-9, 21-12.
