Squaws move on to the playoffs

From Coach Bryan Masse

On Saturday the Squaws traveled to Tulia to face off with the Lady Hornets.

The C team started things off with a hard fought three game win, having to come from behind to pull out the win. The JV had their way with the Hornets and used good serving, passing, setting and hitting for a 2-0 sweep.

The varsity team started off hot and had a lead of 7-1 and 9-2 but got tight and made several errors in a row to let the Lady Hornets get the momentum they needed to win 26-24. We could have had them down 1-0 but let them off the hook and they came back to beat us.

In game two the Squaws showed they were there to play and rebounded for a 25-19 victory. Game three was all Friona as the Lady Hornets were down and were making mistakes when the Squaws were putting pressure on them. The Squaws had momentum and played well for a 25-12 win.

The ladies did not come out in game four with the killer instinct and had leads but made mistakes to stop runs that could have given them the game and match. The Squaws battled hard but lost 24-26. In game five the Squaws did not even get started as Tulia could sense the match was theirs if they played clean. Tulia continued to not miss serves or make hitting errors and won 15-7.

On Tuesday night the Squaws hosted the Littlefield Lady Cats. In the C team match the girls finished the year off right with a 2-0 game sweep. The C team finished the year 11-12 and 5-1 in district and were district champs.

In the JV match the Squaws continued their winning ways and finished a perfect 6-0 in district and a very respectful 19-7 for the season. Congrats and thanks to Coach Ray and Coach O'Neil for all the hard work they put in.

The varsity team made quick work of the two Littlefield ladies with a 3-0 victory. The Squaws won game one 25-10 with good ball control. They were able to be in system most of set one.

In game two the Squaws continued with good passing and serving for a 25-13 win. Game three was the same as the Squaws were able to run their offense and stay in the system for a 25-14 win.

The Squaws finished the regular season 24-14 and 4-2 in district securing second place. Friona will play Sanford Fritch at Canyon High School Tuesday November 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the first round of the playoffs.
