Despite graduation losses, Class 1A Dodd City has resumed its winning ways in 2023.
Coming off a run in 2022 to the Region III-1A quarterfinals and a 27-12 record, the Lady Hornets ended August already with 14 wins.
Dodd City has been ranked in the Top 5 in all in-season 1A polls by the Texas Girls Coaches Association, including holding the No. 1 spot in the initial.
Returning all-district players from 2022, including superlative recipients, abound: senior Kadyn McCarley, offensive player of the year; senior Addyson Chaney, libero of the year; sophomore Addison Weeks, newcomer of the year; senior Hannah Burney, second-team recipient.
Lindsay Carter Giles, the district's coach of the year, also returns for her third season, as the Lady Hornets in September will continue preparations for defending their undefeated 19-1A championship in October -- and an assured 29th postseason in the sport in the last 34 years afterwards.
