The victory came about with the Lady Cats missing a couple of players who were out due to injury and illness.
“We played well against Three Rivers despite being injury and illness plagued. I was extremely proud of the ways the ladies adapted to playing with different girls in different places,” said S-T coach Judy Whatley.
Set one of the best of five went to the Bee County ladies by the score of 25-21 in a close contest. The second set had the Lady Cats extend their dominance for a seven-point victory at 25-18 over the Lady Bulldogs for a 2-0 lead.
The deciding set was another fairly close tilt. The Lady Cats hung on for a 25-19 win to sweep the Lady Bulldogs in three straight for the victory.
The win improves the S-T record to 13-7.
“One of the keys to success is knowing the people around you and knowing what each will do. We will continue to strive to be better, quicker and stronger,” said Whatley on Monday.
The Lady Cats served six aces in the match with Kathy Mireles and Rachel Mengers each getting two. D’Anne Wilder had 13 assists in the three-set win. Mengers had five digs on defense to go along with 11 kills at the net. Mengers and Selina Acosta each also blocked one shot.
The Lady Cats entertained the Banquete Lady Bulldogs on Tuesday night and will be idle this Friday evening. The S-T girls travel to Odem next Tuesday night. The evening of volleyball begins with the first serve at 5 p.m.
