On the road at Antonian Prep, the Arabians fell in three sets 6-25, 21-25, and 14-25. “We didn’t come out with much fire in set 1, but we did in set 2 and put ourselves in a pretty good situation. We just got stuck in a rotation at the end and couldn’t get out. Set 3 we did some more great things but Antonian just had a little more fire power then what we have. The level of play in set 2 is the way I know that these girls can play, it just hasn’t been visible in a while,” said Coach McIver.

With the end of pre-district coming to a close, the Arabians struggled against Floresville on September 20 and fell in three sets 18-25, 7-25, and 23-25. “We just couldn’t produce offensively tonight. We had plenty of opportunities but just couldn’t connect. I thought we did a better job in the third set but just couldn’t pull it out,” said Coach Leigh Ann McIver.
