SSHS Volleyball Has Two Games Left Prior To District Season

The real test begins soon for Lady Cats volleyball.

Sulphur Springs, including Friday’s road game, plays just two more games before district play gets underway.

Coach Bailey Dorner’s team hits the road Friday, taking on Clarksville at 5:30 P.M. and has a Tuesday home-match versus PTAA before Saturday’s date in Paris.

On Tuesday Sept. 13, Lady Cat volleyball ended their three-game home-stand with a loss at the hands of Melissa.

“We got down early in set one and set two. We dug ourselves in a hole that we had to dig out of,” Coach Bailey Dorner said following the loss Tuesday.

The visiting Lady Cards featured a talented squad of athletes who took advantage of Sulphur Springs mistakes. The Lady Cats had five serving errors in set two.

The loss to Melissa was the second loss in the three-game home-stand, including a sweep at the hands of former district rival Texas High. That, and they played Mount Pleasant to begin their season, plus Greenville, and Coach Dorner knows her squad has faced a challenging non-district season.

“We have a very tough pre-season, and that’s kind of been hard for our girls to realize,” Coach Bailey Dorner said.

Even with picking up some losses, the volleyball coach knows her team is all the better for it.

“The only way you get better is by playing teams who are better than you,” Coach Dorner said.

Sulphur Springs hits the road Friday, Sept. 16 when they head to Clarksville.

That match begins on Friday at 4:30 P.M.
