Kilgore’s season under way

The Kilgore High School volleyball program played in a play day (a series of scrimmages) last weekend at Henderson Middle School, and at press time Tuesday night, the Lady Bulldogs were set to open their season at home against Nacogdoches.

See a story now on kilgorenewsherald.com, and coverage in Saturday’s News Herald print edition.

The Lady ‘Dogs, led by first-year head coach Madeline Harris, are to play in a tournament at Garland this weekend (varsity only), and will host John Tyler next Tuesday, starting with freshmen at 5 p.m. (junior varsity and varsity will follow).

Harris’s team plays in a tournament at Troup next weekend, and visits Sabine on Tuesday, Aug. 20.

District play doesn’t begin until mid-September, at Henderson on Sept. 17.
