On Tuesday, September 13th, the Lytle Junior High Lady Pirates hosted the Dilley Wolves for the night, and came out on top at every level for a successful evening.
Kicking things off with the 8th grade B team, the girls were able to put together a good serving game, led by Mari Guerrero and Gabby Finamore, to ultimately take the win in two sets of 25-10 and 25-10.
The 7th grade A team took the floor next and again utilized a strong serving game in order to earn the win against Dilley. “We have expressed to the girls how important serving is in volleyball, and by serving well we are able to stay in control of the game.” Says coach Shelly Armentrout of the girls’ serving tactics throughout the game.
Led by Evelyn Barco, Ashley Evans, and Haley Ward, the girls served their way to victory in 25-19 and 25-14.
Rounding out the night was the 8th grade A team, who kept the streak going and sealed out Dilley from getting any wins on the night. The key to their win was again good serving from the girls, led by Aliana Cardenas and Lillian Evans. “…both girls served so well in the first game that they only went three rotations.” said coach Armentrout. The first set was won in 25-4. A few more rotations in the second set and the girls completed the sweep against Dilley, finishing in 25-18. Coach Armentrout also comments on the support from fans at games. “If you get the chance to come cheer the girls on we know they would love to see you.”
