On Tuesday night, the Lady Lions Volleyball team played against the Round Rock Dragons. Both JV and varsity lost, as well as the freshman teams.

“I think our team is filled with so much potential,” junior Madison Berglund said. “Even though we didn’t pull out a win, we fought and are ready to play them again in district.”

The first set for the JV girls resulted in a loss with a score of 15-25. The second set’s score was 12-25, causing the JV team to take a loss.

“We just need to grow together as a team [and] be more tight knit,” sophomore Amanda Larson said. “[We need to] know each other’s patterns and how to read the other team.”

… Even though we ended up losing, we never stopped fighting as hard as we could.

“We really just gave it our all that game,” junior Pilar Gobanza said. “[We] had a lot of fun with each other and the crowd, and even though we ended up losing, we never stopped fighting as hard as we could.”
