BEEVILLE — The visiting Victoria West Lady Warriors were too tough to handle on Tuesday night on the volleyball court. The three teams swept through the Beeville freshman, JV and varsity squads in straight sets.

The ninth-graders began the evening, and the Warrior young ladies dominated from the first serve. In the best of three sets match, the Victoria girls jumped out to an 11-2 lead and went on to capture set one 25-8.

The Beeville girls got a quick 2-0 lead off the serve of Kayla Standrige in set two, including one ace. Once the Warriors gained the serve, however, the visitors ran off 22 straight points to easily capture set two and the match with a 25-8 victory for a 2-0 win.

The junior varsity match was also a best of three scenario. The Lady Trojans played well in set one, hustling after hits and digging on defense. It was close early in the set as the Warriors managed just a 10-8 lead.

A run of nine straight points from a lead of 14-9 put the visitors in front for good at 23-9, and they cruised in for the 25-7 victory for the 2-0 straight set victory.

Margaret Downing played well for the Lady Trojans along the net, but the Lady Warriors were too experienced and too talented to overcome. MacKenzie Harvey was the Beeville setter for the JV girls.

The varsity match was a best of five competition, but the visitors captured three straight to earn the win. Scores of the three sets were 25-14, 25-20 and 25-16.

The first set saw the Warriors jump out to an early 6-2 lead and then finish off the set with a 10-6 run from 15-8 advantage. Lady Trojan Brennan Holder came up with a few blocks over the course of the set and a couple of kills and tips. The Lady Trojans hustled on defense, but the power and the never-ending hits from Victoria wore down the Beeville defense.

Set two was much closer, and the Lady Trojans forged an early lead, dominating play at 5-2 before the Warriors got things back on track to begin eating away at the Beeville advantage. The Warriors tied things up at 11 all and went on to a 25-20 win.

The Lady Trojans lost what little momentum they had from the close second set in set three. The visitors led from the opening serve and never trailed. Emma Downing and Holder came up with blocks for points for the Lady Trojans, but too many errors on defense and the Warriors’ size and power led to a 25-16 victory and a 3-0 win in the match.

The Lady Trojans played host to Calallen Friday night and will play a non-district match against Carroll in Corpus Christi on Tuesday. All three volleyball teams will be on the court in both matches.
