JV squads sweep Sabinal

The Lady Mustangs JV1 squad stepped up and won their first home game against Sabinal with a 25-21 and 25-23 win. The tight score made the team work hard for every point and five different players earned kills at the net. Led by Coach Tara Cortinas, this team has 1 junior, 9 sophomores, and 2 freshmen and are coming together to have another great season.
Digs: Genesis Perez 4, Meg Martinez 3. Aces: Katie Curiel 2, McAiyla Ruiz 2. Kills: Isabella Martinez 3, Briana Paredes 1, Parker Crowther 1, Dominique Banda 1, Mariah Castro 1. Assists: I. Martinez 2.
Unable to form a freshman team because of too few freshmen coming out, the coaches decided to form a second Junior Varsity team instead of cutting a dozen players. In their first game of the season, the team of juniors, 2 sophomores, and 8 freshmen were able to beat Sabinal 25-17 and 25-23. This team will play against other schools’ freshman teams.
Digs: Jalesca Schorch 1, Valerie Saenz 1, Jocelyn Garcia 2. Aces, Destiny Vasquez 4, Garcia 3. Kills Rebekah Sanchez 1.
