The Bridgeport Sissies dropped their district opener to the Gainesville Lady Leopards Friday. Gainesville swept Bridgeport 25-18, 25-18, 25-16.
The Sissies (13-11, 0-1) were led by Mariah Clayton with 14 kills and two blocks. Jessica Mares had 11 digs. Tiffany Hawkins added 16 assists and eight digs.
“It was a very sluggish start to district,” Bridgeport coach Rebekah Cummings said. “We made a lot of mental mistakes in our passing and our hitting. We just didn’t show up to play. The girls were disappointed in their performance and are working hard this week to get back on top of their game.”
Bridgeport travels to Decatur Friday.
