The Skidmore-Tynan Lady Cats improved their overall record to 14-7 and stayed undefeated at 3-0 in district play on Tuesday night as they defeated the visiting Banquete Lady Bulldogs in three straight sets.

“I was very pleased with the focus of our team tonight. We took care of business from the start. The brooms were brought out tonight to make it a clean sweep,” said S-T coach Judy Whatley.

The scores in the varsity win were 25-13, 25-14 and 25-17 as the Lady Cats had the Lady Bulldogs penned up all night.

Rachel Mengers led the offensive attack with 13 kills and one block along the net. D’Anne Wilder set up 17 points for assists while coming up with three digs and three kills of her own. Selina Acosta added one dig on defense and five kills and one ace in the victory. Kathy Mireles played a good all-around match with one dig, three kills and two aces off her serve for the Lady Cats. Aailyah East got one kill but hit for three big aces off her serve in the match. Jennifer Pueblo also contributed with her four digs and four kills and one ace of the Lady Cats.

The Lady Cats are perfect in district, winning all nine of their games against their first three opponents.

It was a total sweep for the Lady Cats as the JV and freshman girls also won their matches on Tuesday night against Banquete.

The JV girls won in two straight sets, 25-10 and 25-9, over the Banquete girls. The Lady Cats outscored the Lady Dogs by 31 points. Sara Rix scored 11 in a row to finish off set one.

“It was just great team play and communication that assisted with the victory,” said JV coach Erasmo Huerta.

The freshman squad went three sets before leashing in the Bulldogs. The scores were 14-25, 28-26 and 25-21.

“The freshman team struggled, but maintained enough composure to come out victorious,” Huerta said.

Amber Hughlett led the team with nine points in set two to keep the Lady Cats in the game. Set three had Stephanie Gonzales-Nunez leading with six points.

“Reaction times were slow but persistence paid of,” Huerta said.

The Lady Cats were off on Friday night but will travel to Odem on Tuesday evening to battle the Lady Owls.
