TRINITY — Despite the Trinity Lady Tigers playing exceptionally well in its first set against Anderson-Shiro, ultimately the team lost to the Lady Owls 3-0.
Head coach Haleigh Blount said the team’s serve receive was solid and allowed us to create opportunities for assists and kills, but it wasn’t sustained.
The Lady Tigers led 20-18 in the first game, but began making silly errors during rallies and the score ended up 20-25. In the second, the team began forcing plays and making mistakes, leading to a 25-5 loss; there was some recovery, but Trinity lost the third 25-12.
“We're still learning how to mentally hold on and compete each point, but we're cultivating a strong mindset little by little,” Blount said.
Nevaeh Craft led in kills, Taneya Maxie led in block touches and blocks, and Leslie Gonzalez led in digs.
