The Lady Cats closed out their fall 2021 season with a huge come-from-behind five set victory in Longview versus the Lady Lobos

Sulphur Springs lost set one after trailing at several points but ended within striking distance at 25-22. 

The Lady Cats, at risk of losing their third straight game if they did not strike back did just that, winning set two 25-19 after leading by as much as seven earlier in the set. 

Coach Bailey Dorner’s team followed up a 1-1 tie after set two with a late scoring run to win set three 25-18. 

Longview, fighting up until the final whistle, took set four 25-20 to force a winner-take-all set five. 

The final set at Lobo Coliseum was never in question as Sulphur Springs cruised to an emphatic 15-7 set five win. 

The five-match win is the second on the season for the Lady Cats volleyball team. The first occurred on Oct. 1, also against Longview. 

The win on Tuesday, Oct. 26 was the final game on the fall 2021 regular season. The win gives Sulphur Springs a 21-16 overall record (7-5 district) heading in to the playoffs.

Next up, Coach Bailey Dorner and her Lady Cats will be taking part in the Bi-District round of playoffs. 

On Monday the Volleyball Team will be taking on the Lufkin Lady Panthers at Tyler High. That match is scheduled to begin at 6:30 P.M.

Monday’s playoff game will be broadcasted on to KSST 1230 AM.
