The Lady Cats fought hard and never quit, but couldn’t keep up with the Lady Mavs, losing in four sets in Marshall.
Sulphur Springs had decent leads on several occasions, but the Lady Mavs had an answer for everything the Lady Cats sent their way.
Coach Bailey Dorner’s squad had a seven point lead in set one, only for Marshall to pull ahead and take a tough set one 25-23.
Set two was Maverick Mania as just about everything went their way en route to a commanding 2-0 set lead over Sulphur Springs.
The Lady Cats, realizing a second straight defeat were on their hands if they didn’t respond, did exactly that. Riding a late scoring run from Addyson Wall, Coach Dorner’s team got a huge 25-22 set three victory.
Set four proved to be their undoing as the Lady Mavs (6-2 in district) powered their way to a 25-19 set four loss and 3-1 defeat.
The loss is the second straight for Sulphur Springs, whose record now is 19-14 (5-4 district). The loss also keeps the Lady Cats volleyball team in fourth place in District 15-5A.
