Lady Cats volleyball did not have the return home that they were hoping for, falling in three straight sets, losing to Texas High on Tuesday, Sept. 6.
“I feel like we played better than what the scoreboard showed,” Coach Bailey Dorner said Tuesday following the loss.
Sulphur Springs had the lead late in set one, 21-17, only to be outscored down the stretch 8-3 allowing the Lady Tigers to steal the set.
Lady Cats volleyball struggled to rebound from the lost momentum, falling in the next two sets 25-19 and 25-16 to fall at home to Texas High.
Sulphur Springs at times in sets two and three stringed together some runs that saw them recapture a bit of momentum, only to see a talented Lady Tigers team take it right back.
Coach Dorner loved what she saw from her players, improving in areas that they had worked on in practice, but one thing her volleyball team must get better at is “mental toughness, just being able to overcome some adversity… I think when that clicks we’ll be unstoppable.”
The loss on Tuesday to former district rival Texas High drops Lady Cat volleyball’s season record to 11-11.
It is the first time all season Sulphur Springs has dropped to .500.
Coach Dorner and her team continue their three game home-stand Friday with another non-district match-up, this time against Redwater.
That game begins at 4:30 P.M. on Friday, Sept. 9 in the SSHS Main Gym.
