The freshman squad lost in two straight in their best of three match-up with the young Warriors. But, the team showed much improvement, according to coach Don Ledezma.
“The Lady Trojans showed up today ready to play. We played much better tonight. We were working together and keeping up with the Lady Warriors,” Ledezma said.
“We are excited to see where we go from here.”
The JV best of three also went to the Warrior girls in two straight sets. Scores were 25-7 and 25-12.
“We seemed a little out of sync tonight. We were all pulling in different directions,” said JV coach Katina Walker.
“We have to play together, especially against a team like Victoria West.”
The varsity match-up started the evening in Victoria and set one was a barn-burner. The Lady Warriors inched in front late and captured the first set of the best of five match, 25-21.
“We knew we would have to play a near perfect game against West. We came out fighting from the very beginning,” said head coach Brittaninie Zinsmeyer.
“We played hard.”
In the second set, every bounce, tip and kill went the Warriors’ way. Victoria went out front early and dominated for a 25-8 victory and a 2-0 lead in the match.
“We just have to learn to stay up when it does not go our way. West continued to hit holes and get around our blocks,” said Zinsmeyer.
The third set was a little closer but the Warriors smelled blood and shut off the Lady Trojans for a 25-13 victory and a 3-0 win.
The loss puts the Lady Trojans’ season record at 14-17 and they are 0-8 in district play.
The Lady Trojans played in Calallen on Tuesday night. The Beeville girls will have an open date on Friday.
