This season has proven a tough one, as the Lady Lions have struggled to secure a win in almost all of their games except for the game against Marble Falls last month. The girls won all three matches with an average score of 25-12.
In the classic rivalry, the Lady Lions have won 1-10 in the past 10 years the two teams have played.
Unfortunately, the Lady Lions were not able to secure a victory for any of the 3 sets that were played.
In the first set, the final score was 18-25. The final score for the second set was a close 25-27, and the final score for the third set was 16-25.
A few of the ladies gave an outstanding performance.
Senior Autumn Lockley had 13 kills (an attack that results in an immediate point or side out), 3 aces (a serve that is not passable and results immediately in a point) and 8 digs (passing a spiked or rapidly hit ball).
Junior Anna Gallagher had 3 blocks (a defensive play by one or more players meant to deflect a spiked ball back to the hitter’s court), and senior Callie Prather had 13 assists (passing or setting the ball to a teammate who attacks the ball for a kill).
“[The girls] fought really hard,” Head Coach Atkinson said. “[They] worked really hard on defense in the game against Cedar Park.”
The Lady Lions will play their next game against the Georgetown Lady Eagles tonight at 6:30 pm. Come out and support your Lady Lions!
