Squaw volleyball update

From Coach Bryan Masse

The Friona Squaws volleyball team participated in the Shallowater tourney August 16-17. They opened up pool play with three wins in a row over Christ the King, Tulia, and Brownfield.

In the last pool play game the Squaws were beating Shallowater when a long delay from the scorers table took place. After the long delay the Squaws could not regain the momentum and lost a close match to the Fillies.

In bracket play on Saturday the girls opened with a short handed Littlefield team and made quick work of the district opponent. Then came Lubbock Christian. The squaws fought hard but lost a close match that could have gone either way.

In the third place game the Squaws did not have enough energy after the disappointing loss and fell short to Snyder, claiming fourth place in the tournament. After the tournament the Squaws record was 6-3.

The next weekend the Squaws returned home from the Littlefield tournament as the consolation champions. They finished third in their pool on Friday with losses to Shallowater and Plains and a win over Olton. The girls were really close to being first but lost two very close games.

On Saturday the girls played good for part of the first game vs. Plainview Christian but came upon hard times and lost a game that should have been won. After the loss the Squaws rebounded to beat Post, Dimmitt, and Olton to capture the consolation title.

We came together and played better as a team after the first loss to finish on a high note.

The Squaws went to Brownfield Tuesday to play the lady Cubs and the Plains Cowgirls. In the “C” team match the Squaws came out with a win in their first match of the season.

The JV team took the court against Brownfield and Plains. Although there were some bright spots the ladies were not consistent enough and lost both matches.

The varsity opened with a 3-0 victory over Brownfield. The Squaws played well and never let the Lady Cubs get comfortable, winning 25-15, 25-21, 25-13. In the second game the girls played well for a 25-21 victory against Plains. In the second game the Squaws stayed even with the Cowgirls but did not win the last part of the game and fell 19-25.

The third game was a lot like the second one in that it was back and forth until the last part of the game and lost 21-25. Losing two games very close seemed to take its toll on the tired Squaws and the score showed it, 14-25.

The Squaws are 11-7 and play in the River Road tournament Friday August 30. The ladies open with Borger at 2:00 p.m.
