Monday September 24th the 7th grade Gold Fillys made the long bus ride down to Carrizo Springs and won in two quick sets. After much practice, the Fillys’ serving has much improved and showed in this game. Yancy Parson and Makayla Rivera each had 2 aces, and Avery Mobley had 1. But it was the lack of returned volleys that won the game for them. Carrizo was just not able to get the ball back over the net.
Makayla Rivera had 2 hits and 1 kill, Gabriela Mares had 2 hits, and Austin Little had 1 hit. Bailey Ornelas had 1 assist. Parson had 2 digs, Emiley Mares 1, and Maya Hernandez 1 dig. Reese Duncan had 2 offensive serve receives, Parson 1, Mobley 1, and Mia Hernandez 1 offensive serve receive.
“The girls played as good as expected. It is difficult to encourage the girls to set up when we do not get the ball returned during volleys. We did improve our serving game and we needed that. I am very proud of this win!” said Coach Shana Beaty.
