Both matches went three sets with the freshman girls coming from behind for a victory, but the JV girls lost their best of three contest.
The opening match of the night had the ninth-grade girls on the court. Moody captured the first set at 25-20. The Beeville girls turned things around in sets two and three, however.
Set two was a seven-point win at 25-18 for Beeville. The Lady Trojans dominated the deciding set of the best of three match, 25-12.
“We stepped up the process in the last two sets. The team is working hard for a victory towards the district finish,” said freshman coach Gracy Bryce.
The coach acknowledged the play of four players against Moody.
Cori Moore came through with several points off her serve. Brianna Jackson hit well along the net for several kills. Defensively, the Lady Trojans picked up several digs and returns from Taylor Lawson, while Paige McKinney used her height along the net to score at will on tips against Moody.
The JV match was a close three-set affair. The Moody girls captured set one by getting the final two points, 25-23. The Beeville girls evened the match with a 25-18 win in set two. The Moody girls got back on track and captured the deciding set, 25-17.
“Noemi Lopez, Kristen Almeida and Bethany San Miguel came up big on service points,” said JV coach Chuck Youngblood.
“The defense played very well and the hitting offense was in ‘beast’ mode behind the amazing hitting of Heather McKinney and Alisa Patterson,” said Youngblood.
The Beeville teams were back in Corpus Christi on Friday night to tangle with the Miller Lady Bucs.
On Tuesday night, the Lady Trojans will host the Ray Lady Texans. Next Friday evening, the Beeville squads also will be at home against the Port Lavaca Sandies.
