The Lady Cats volleyball team had another hard-fought district match on Friday, Sept. 17, this time against the Marshall Lady Mavs.
Coach Bailey Dorner’s squad hosted the Lady Mavs in the SSHS Main Gym on Friday for Sulphur Springs’ third district match.
The Lady Cats lost a nice lead in set one and unfortunately for the home team they would go on to lose the first set 26-24.
Sets two and three were won by Sulphur Springs, 26-24 and 25-23 to give Coach Dorner’s team a 2-1 set lead.
The fourth set showed this team’s character and tenacity as even though they trailed by nine, they came back to win set four 26-24 and thus the match 3-1.
The win gives the Lady Cats volleyball team a 16-11 overall record (2-1 district). Sulphur Springs has won four of their last five matches, with their lone loss being Tuesday’s home classic versus Texas High.
Next up, Coach Dorner and her squad will be in Longview next Tuesday taking on the Pine Tree Pirates.
JV and freshman squads will get things underway at 5 P.M. followed by the varsity squads at 6 P.M.
