It took the Skidmore-Tynan Lady Cats just a few points to warm up on Monday night in their season opener against visiting Riviera. The Lady Cats won in three straight games, 25-8, 25-13 and 25-16.

“I am pretty pleased with the level of our play this early,” said S-T head coach Judy Whatley.

“We’re still working on our back line. It’s a new group and we’re still making adjustments.”

Down 5-7 in the first game, the S-T girls ripped off 17 straight points from the serve of Rachel Mengers to take command of the game and capture game one of the best of five match, 25-8.

Game two had the home team jump out to an early 5-2 lead but the Lady Seahawks fought their way back into the contest. It was tied at eight apiece before the Lady Cats ran away from the Lady Hawks. Nine straight points went to the S-T girls with seven coming off the serve of D’Anne Wilder. The final was 25-13 for a 2-0 game lead in the match for the Lady Cats.

The third game was all S-T early, but again, the Riviera ladies made a game of it. Trailing 7-2, the Lady Hawks finally tied the contest at 12-12. The Lady Cats outscored the visitors 13-4 down the stretch to secure game three and a sweep of the match.

“We were hitting the ball consistently and our serving was pretty strong,” said Whatley after the win.

The Lady Cat freshmen won their match 2-1 over the Riviera girls. The first game went to S-T 25-12, but the young Lady Hawks rebounded for a dominating 25-4 win in game two to even the best of three match.

The deciding game had the Lady Cats back on top with a 25-10 win for the match.

“It was a good team effort,” said freshman coach Erasmo Huerta.

“Randi Borrego had three real good all-around games.”

The JV match was close and had to go into extra points in game three to decide the winner. Riviera captured the first game 25-22. S-T came back with a good game two to even the match, winning 25-16. The third and final game was a back-and-forth affair with the visitors getting the final two points for a 26-24 victory for a 2-1 match win.

“It was a good first game of the season,” said coach Huerta.

The Lady Cats played again on Tuesday night as the Lady Bulldogs from Orange Grove paid a visit to Skidmore.
