Arabians beat Crystal City

In their second district game of the season, the Arabians won at home on October 1st against Crystal City. Having played on the road for nearly a month, the Arabians felt the power of the home court in this game. Crystal City did not go down easily and Devine worked hard to stay ahead of their offensive charge. They won 25-20, 25-20, 25-23 to increase their district record to 2-0.
“This was a great win, especially since we haven’t played at home in almost a month,” Coach Leigh Anne McIver said. “We did some great things tonight but also had some moments where we made too many errors in a row. Our blockers really stepped up tonight and got lots of blocks and touches on the ball which really helped our defense.”
