The Lady Cats volleyball team got the much-needed win over the Pine Tree Lady Pirates on Friday, sweeping Pine Tree 3-0 for the season sweep over the Lady Pirates.

Set one was the closest of the three, as the Lady Cats won 25-18. 

Coach Bailey Dorner’s team 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).

Not only that, but the much-needed win for Coach Dorner’s program keeps them in the thick of the play-off hunt.

They come in to Tuesday’s match (originally a bye on the schedule) with a 6-4 district record, a game behind third placed Hallsville (7-3) and 1.5 behind second-place Marshall (7-2).

The Sulphur Springs coach added a game to the schedule Tuesday in which they will travel to Edgewood. 

A tune-up before the final two games of district play will be good for the Lady Cats as on Friday, Senior night for Coach Bailey Dorner’s program, will be a tough match with Hallsville.

If Sulphur Springs can win out, not only in their non-district contest versus the Lady Bulldogs tonight but throughout the rest of their fall 2021 regular season, Coach Dorner’s program may just put themselves in a position to take third or possibly even second place.

First they will have to get through the Lady Bulldogs on Tuesday, Oct. 19.

That match is set to begin in Edgewood at 4:30 P.M. with varsity only playing Tuesday night.
