Arabians beat Lytle to claim back-to-back District titles

“We did not play our game tonight,” Coach Leigh Anne McIver said. “Our pace was slow and we were not moving like we usually do.

They scored 41 kills led by Trojanowski 16, Sierra Pompa 12, Friesenhahn 9, Caimee Fowler 3, and Alissa Stehle 1. There were 35 assists; Trojanowski 22, Rendon 11, Friesenhahn and Amanda Richardson each with 1.
Defensively, there were only two blocks made by Friesenhahn. The Arabians had 37 digs; Julie Ortiz and Friesenhahn each with 7, Trojanowski 5, Stehle and Elizabeth Puente each with 4, Rendon and Richardson each with 3, Pompa 2, Fowler and Megan Runyan each with 1.
“I am proud of what the girls accomplished in district but now is when each day really counts,” Coach McIver said. “We still have big goals to reach and still work to do. I am excited to see what this team accomplishes in the post season.”
