“These girls don’t have many stats for this game. It was basically a serving game. We cannot make digs when the opposing team does not set up an offense. Crystal City gave good effort and my girls just stayed focused and played their game and did what they needed to do to bring home a win.”-Coach Shana Beaty
Makayla Rivera served 4 aces, Mia Hernandez, Brynlea Byrd, and Iris Stricker with 2 each. The Gold Fillys season record stands at 7-1-1 and undefeated in district at 6-0 after this match.
Maroon Fillys

Rylee Esquibel served 4 aces, Kate Featherly 3, and Brooklyn Miller 2. Denise Contreras had 1 kill. Featherly had 1 assist.
“We really could have done a better job offensively.  We had many opportunities to set up attacks considering the number of times Crystal City sent “free balls” back over.  I try really hard to convey to the girls the importance of taking advantage of the opportunities given to “shine”; and believe me, these girls can SHINE!” – Coach Shana Beaty
Coming up for the 7th grade Fillys is a game in Pearsall October 22nd and their final game against Carrizo Springs at home on October 29th.
