The Kilgore Lady Bulldogs have situated themselves squarely in the playoff picture in District 16-3A, and a big reason is the play of setter Sarah Mendenhall.

Mendenhall, a senior, earned Player of the Week honors from the Longview News-Journal after helping lead the Lady Bulldogs to a pair of wins that moved Kilgore to 4-3 in league play. Mendenhall opened the week by distributing 19 assists to go along with seven aces and four digs in a 25-18, 25-15, 25-14 win over Chapel Hill.

On Friday, the Lady Bulldog standout recorded a career-high 42 assists and added four aces and 10 digs in a 25-19, 19-25, 25-19, 13-25, 15-12 win over Bullard.

For the season, Mendenhall has 519 assists, 31 aces, 29 kills, 10 blocks and 147 digs.
Kilgore’s Annie Mehringer had a combined 26 kills, five aces and 35 digs in wins over Chapel Hill and Bullard. Teammate Tony Burks had 24 kills for the week, and Nichole Flores finished with 47 digs and eight aces
