The Lady Cats volleyball team got a much-needed win over the Pine Tree Lady Pirates on Friday, Oct. 15, sweeping Pine Tree 3-0 for the season sweep over the Lady Pirates.
Sulphur Springs desperately needed to get back in the win column after a brutal two game stretch that saw them take on Texas High and Marshall, both on the road.
Unfortunately for Coach Bailey Dorner and her program, they went 0-2 during that stretch to fall to fourth place in District 15-5A at 5-4.
Hosting Pine Tree was a much-needed reprieve, as the Lady Pirates came into the match at the SSHS Main Gym winless in district (0-8).
Much like the first time these two teams met, the visiting Lady Pirates fought hard throughout the match, but could not translate it into set wins, getting swept by Sulphur Springs in straight sets.
Set one was the closest of the three, as the Lady Cats won 25-18.
Sulphur Springs took care of business from there, dispatching Pine Tree 25-10 and 25-14 to get the season-sweep of the Lady Pirates.
The win gave the Lady Cats volleyball team a 20-14 overall record (6-4 district).
Next up, Coach Bailey Dorner added a game to the schedule Tuesday in which they will travel to Edgewood.
That match is set to begin at 4:30 P.M. starting with the JV/freshman squads, followed by the varsity teams at 6 P.M.
