Lady Cats Volleyball Coach Bailey Dorner admits to going into Friday night’s bi-district contest against Tyler a little worried that her team may come into the game underestimating their opponent. After all, the district champ Lady Cats were the #1 seed against #4 seed Tyler.
Turns out Coach Dorner had nothing to worry about. Her team promptly took care of business defeating Tyler, 3-0 by the score of 25-14, 25-14 and 25-7.
She says her team showed up and played well in all areas. Coach Dorner liked her team’s serve and serve receive. She singled out junior middle blocker Brooklynn Burnside for special praise noting that she had an amazing game. Burnside led the team in kills and blocks.
Now, the Lady Cats face North Forney in an Area contest Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Royse City. Coach Dorner says the Lady Falcons are athletic and scrappy. She says they dropped the first set of their bi-district match against Joshua, but just continued on like nothing had happened. Coach Dorner says North Forney has a couple of girls on the front row that are athletic and know where to hit the ball.
The Lady Cats are 15-7 for the season. The Lady Falcons, third in their district, come in 16-5.
