Sports are all about improving and working hard to get better every day. The Tiger girls volleyball team showed tonight that they have worked hard this past week and have improved in every facet of the game not only physically but mentally. I am so proud of the way they battled all night long.
A close loss is still tough but it takes the sting out when you know you played hard and fought for every point all night long.
Our passing, setting, and hitting have all improved. Our one area that still needs the most work is our blocking along with just fixing a few of the little things when the game is on the line.
We had a great loud cheering section and the gym had a great atmosphere as the two teams battled back and forth with numerous lead changes in every set.

Leaders are the night:
Lauren Bolte 21-21 2 aces
Abbi Furness 10-10
Daysi Harris 16-19 5 aces
Lexie Shaffer 11-12 2 aces

Serve Receive:
Our three defensive specialists did a great job with serve receive tonight.
Ella McAlexander, Izzy Reding and Natalie Brown all passed at over a 2.0 average on a 3 point scale on the night.
