At the beginning of the year, Kingman Academy volleyball coach Jason Judd wasn't sure of the identity of his team.

After Friday's wins over Peoria Accelerated and South Ridge, he has a better idea of the direction the Tigers are going.

"I would say we are close to finding it," Judd said. "I think we have our rotation figured out. People are finding more holes and we know who our hitters are and who our blockers are and the players that can come off the bench."

KAHS (7-0) easily took care of Peoria with a 3-0 win (25-10, 25-11, 25-12) and easily cruised to a 25-10 win in Game 1 of its match with South Ridge.

However, in the second and third games, the Tigers had to battle to a 25-19 win in Game 2 and a 25-23 win in Game 3.

"Overall, the girls played really well," Judd said. "It was a letdown in the final game of the second match, but prior to that I was very impressed with their movement."

KAHS improved to 5-0 on Thursday with a 3-0 win over Maya (25-16, 25-22, 25-9). But despite the 3-0 wins, Judd is seeing a much-improved competition compared to years past.

"It is nice because we get to see where we are doing wrong or what we are doing right," Judd said. "It is nice to play and the teams are getting better in terms of fundamentals."

The Tigers will host Mesa Heritage at 5 p.m. today. KAHS beat Heritage in the semifinals of the 3A Charter Athletic Association state tournament before falling to Mesa EVAC.
