Lady Cats Volleyball Continues Chugging Along to District Play


Coach Bailey Dorner and her squad continue to roll through their fall season, as they have just three games to play before volleyball begins their district season.

They play both two home and road games over the next 12 days, alternating between home and the road until Saturday, Sept. 20.

But before we can look ahead to district play, Sulphur Springs first finishes a three-game home-stand Tuesday.

The Lady Cats host Melissa on Tuesday, Sept. 13.

Coach Dorner’s team hosted Redwater on Friday in game two of the home-stand, defeating the Dragons in four sets.

The Lady Cats fell in set one in a tight one 25-20, battling back and winning the next two sets to take a 2-1 lead (25-21, 25-20) before cruising by Redwater 25-13 in set four to win the match.

Friday’s win over the Dragons snapped a four-game losing skid for volleyball, which includes a loss in the home-stand opener to Texas High, bringing their season record now to 12-11. Also with that win, they will look to make it two straight Tuesday, giving themselves plenty of momentum headed into their final two non-district contests.

Three games stand between Sulphur Springs and volleyball district play:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 13 vs Melissa (5:30 PM)
  • Friday, Sept. 16 at Clarksville (4:30 PM)
  • Tuesday, Sept. 20 vs PTAA (5:30 PM)

Before heading on the road on Saturday, Sept. 24 to take on Paris in the Lady Cats’ district openers.
