Squaws sweep district,
head to playoffs

From Coach Bryan Masse

The JV and varsity volleyball teams worked hard to complete a sweep of Dimmitt there Saturday. The JV had to overcome a change in their lineup but adjusted fine to win 2-0.

The varsity swept Dimmitt 3-0 to win the outright district championship.

All three teams were victorious Tuesday night in Friona. The C team started off the night with a 2-0 sweep of the Tulia Lady Hornets. With this victory the C team became district champs. I think the C team became better as the year went along and everyone improved on their skill level. Congrats Coach Moreno.

The JV team also won over Tulia 2-0. The JV continued their dominance over district opponents and were also district champs. The JV team did not lose a district game. Well done. JV Coach Ray continues to do a great job developing players for the varsity level. Great job Coach Ray.

On senior night the varsity team came out with a lot of fire. The girls put together the best two games of the season for 25-10, 25-16 wins in the first two games. In game three the Squaws lost momentum and had to fight back from behind. Tulia began to serve better and pick up everything on defense.

The Squaws fought back and had chances to win in three but fell short 27-29. In game four the Squaws had to fight from behind again but they were determined to go undefeated in district and rose up to pull out the win 25-23. The Squaws finish the regular season with a 24-11, 8-0 record.

We play a warm-up game against Dalhart at 6:30 p.m. Monday October 29 at River Road. The area playoff game will be at noon Saturday November 3 with the site still to be determined.
