Squaws are 2-0 in district

The Squaws JV and varsity opened district play with victories over the Olton Fillies. Since Olton does not have a C team the Squaws C team traveled to Plainview Christian and lost 2-0 to the Lady Eagles.

The JV did not really play well in the first game but still beat Olton 25-21, 25-14. They played better and found their rhythm in the second game and won the match 2-0.

In the varsity match the ladies got off to a slow start also and struggled with inconsistent play. They were able to still win 25-23. In game two the Squaws served and passed better to a 25-20 win. Olton did not quit and made the Squaws earn the third game 25-18. We started getting into sync the last game and had some really nice passes to our setters who were able to run some really nice, quick middle sets and our middles did a nice job of putting the ball down.

On Tuesday the JV and varsity continued their winning ways in Littlefield with both teams sweeping the Lady Cats. The JV got all around good play from everyone and pounded the Lady Cats JV 25-11, 25-10. The JV travels to Portales Friday for a tournament. Pool play starts Friday at 8 a.m. New Mexico time and bracket play in the afternoon. The tournament concludes on Saturday.

The varsity girls continued their streak of four consecutive matches by 3-0 sweeps. Littlefield tried to tip on us and it took a while to adjust but I was proud of how we took their game away and then beat them at their own game.

We also put pressure on them with our serves as everyone did a good job serving the ball. The Squaws go to 2-0 in district and host the Grady Lady Broncos Saturday for a non-district contest. Game time is 12 noon for the JV C-team match followed by the varsity around 1 p.m.
