Squaws sweep Plainview, Brownfield

From Coach Bryan Masse

The Squaws volleyball team traveled to Plainview Saturday for a match with Plainview Christian. They put together one of their best matches of the season and swept the Lady Eagles 3-0.

The Squaws won on basic serving, passing, hitting, and blocking. We did a good job of hitting our target areas serving and keeping our errors to a minimum. Passing was another bright spot for the ladies as they kept their errors down and made good passes to keep their teammates in system.

Our hitters did a good job hitting smart and making very few errors. The setters also played a smart match. The front row had several key blocks and never allowed Plainview to get comfortable. Overall we showed improvement and that is a big plus going into district play.

On Tuesday evening the Squaws hosted Brownfield. In the first match the C team fought hard but lost two close games 23-25, 21-25. The JV girls played as well as they have all season in a first game 25-11 win and won the second game 25-23.

The Squaws played well enough in game one to win 25-20, even though we missed 6 serves. In game two the Squaws showed poise in coming from behind to win 25-22. After getting off to an 8-3 start the ladies cruised to a 25-14 victory and won the match 3-0.

I thought we settled down some and played better as the match went on. Our net play was good with several key blocks and hits and we passed the ball well enough to stay in the system.

The JV and varsity host Olton for the district opener Saturday September 22. Game times are 12 noon and 1:30 p.m. The C team travels to Plainview Christian for an 11 a.m. match.
