The JV girls edged the home team two sets to one for the win. The final set was a dominating 25-13 win to capture the match over the Lady Brahmas. Scores of the first two sets were not available.
“The girls never disappoint. They are ready to play and get the job done,” said JV coach Katina Walker.
Anisa Cantu had a good day at the service line for the Lady Trojans. The Beeville girls scored 12 points off her serves. Emma Downing and Lindsey Roberson worked for two kills and two blocks apiece at the net for the Lady Trojans.
Brianna Jackson helped out with four tips and a couple of kills. Tori Munoz also served well with five big aces to go along with four tips at the net. Defensively, coach Walker got good performances from Priscilla Koenig, Bethany San Miguel, Krystall Cuellar, Niki Longoria and Celeste Contreras.
“We are learning from our mistakes and stepping up to take care of business. The Lady Trojans played as one and were playing scrappy volleyball to the finish,” Walker said.
The freshman match was very close and a point here and there going the other way would have benefited the Lady Trojans. The Beeville girls lost in two straight but the sets were closely played with the Lady Brahmas. Set one was a 25-21 win for the home team and the Kingsville girls captured set two, 25-23, for the 2-0 win.
Tif’ni Puebla earned 13 points off her serve and spiked the ball well, according to coach Amanda Escobedo. Eddika Ortega also served well, getting eight points off her service game.
Coach Escobedo praised Abby Silva for her defensive work, coming up with several saves in the match.
“The girls played at their best. They really took the loss to heart, but feel that they are improving as the season progresses,” said Escobedo.
The sub-varsity girls met the Mathis Lady Pirates in Beeville on Tuesday night and will travel to Corpus Christi King on Friday night to test the Lady Mustangs.
