The Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers lost a tough soccer match to Jackson Academy at home Thursday, but Hannah Huddleston still had a reason to be encouraged.
Moments after suffering a 1-0 defeat to JA, Huddleston went to several of her Starkville Academy teammates, gave them a high five and told them they played well.
"Even though we lost, I know we all gave 100 percent and that's all we could do," Huddleston said. "I was so proud of us and I couldn't ask anything more."
Huddleston could see improvement with the stamina and overall technical skills of the Lady Vols.
Starkville Academy was locked in a scoreless battle with the visitors from Jackson until 10 minutes left in the match when JA broke through with a goal.
