GOLDEN TORNADO VOLLEYBALL BLOCK PARTY
A couple of Lamesa High School volleyball players are set to make a block on this play during Tuesday's home opener at Follis Gymnasium. These young Golden Tornado spikers continued their growing pains falling to a tough Lubbock Christian High School team in three games.
The Golden Tor spikers ran into another buzz saw here on Tuesday night at Follis Gymnasium, falling to a strong Lubbock Christian ball club, 25-10, 25-9, 25-16.
“This was one of those matches that you would like to just back up and start over,” Coach Patty Browning said. “The first two games we just absolutely could not execute in any phase of the game. After those first two games we were glad to see our kids fight back in that third game.
“We just could not overcome the momentum that Lubbock Christian had going for them after those first two games.”
With Tuesday’s defeat, the Golden Tor volleyballers fell to 3-6 on the year.
“We really did not execute very well, especially in the passing game so, we could not establish any kind of attack. We missed too many key serves and overall we just were not very focused.”
The Golden Tor volleyballers are back at home this Saturday when they will play host to Wellman-Union here at Follis Gym.
“These kids will work hard and they’ll be able to get themselves on track. The biggest thing for them right now is to understand how important on-court communication is in this sport,” Coach Browning said.
