The 8th grade B team played their best so far this year only to fall to a very athletic and skilled Midway team. Our defense was stellar and we never gave a up. The Lady Tigers fell behind 10-17 only to rally behind the serving of Nadia Pierluisses and the offense attacks from Krista Haake and Kirian Edward the Lady Tigers fought tooth and nail only to fall short 24-26. The second set was a totally lopsided game with Midway winning 25-2. We pull ourselves up from our boot straps and jumped out ahead 8-6, and kept fighting and never giving up only to fall short in the 3rd set 11-15.
The 8th A team struggled going in the first set. We put ourselves into hole set not being to run an offense with the tough serving Lady Panthers We dug ourselves into a hole was not able to get out.

The next set we were a completely different team we went head to head with Midway exchanging points until SB made two mental errors that cost us the set 23-25. In the third set we Midway jumped ahead 3-7 . The Lady Tiger rallied back to 12 points only to lose 15-12. We will regroup and travel to Saturday to the Gatesville for a tournament.
