On Monday, Oct. 27, the Lady Lions Seventh Grade “B” volleyball team ended their season with a win over Chapa Middle School, 25-17 and 25-22. The Lady Lions roared back from a tough loss last week to Goodnight Middle School and played an awesome season ending game.
In Game One, the Lady Lions were consistent at the serving line with Halley Schulle, Gabby Ybarra, and Mariah Hill serving several aces on the night. Sinoy Thompson, Raven Reed, and Hanna Clickscales were unstoppable at the net with powerful sets and attacks. Emma Lewis and libero Trena Lorett had multiple digs from the back row to help the ladies secure the win.
In Game Two, the ladies battled point for point with the skilled Chapa Cougars. Dariella Herrera, Kelsey Pittman, and Hill attacked the ball with precision. The Cougars could not handle the wrath of the Lady Lions kills at the net. Amanda Henrichs and Schulle hustled to set the ball well, while Sabrina Gonzalez and Ybarra pounded out accurate serves to lead the ladies to victory.
“The girls really showed all the skills they had learned throughout the season,” Coach Alisha Homann said. “I had a great time coaching such a wonderful group of young ladies.”
The Lady Lions end their season with an overall record of 8-2 and a district record of 5-1. The team is currently in second place in the district standing behind San Marcos Goodnight. Goodnight is two games behind the Lions, so it is possible the ladies could come away with a district championship.
