2023 HIGHSCHOOL VOLLEYBALL
Dilley topped Pearsall in their season opener but struggled in action at the Natalia tournament over the weekend, going winless in five contests at the event.
“We came out with high spirits and competitive energy as we engaged in a friendly yet intense match,” New DHS Head Volleyball Coach Shandi Rios said of the Pearsall match. “Our front-line players executed successful attacks while our back-row players demonstrated effective passing and defense. We showed determination and showcased our ability to mix up their attack strategies. The intensity on the court was extreme as we fought tooth and nail for every point.”
“We struggled against Comfort and St. Paul the first day,” the coach said of tournament play. “We competed well the second day but came up short against Center Point and Medina but our girls are working hard and responding to the changes.”
Dilley dropped a 13-25, 25-27 decision to Comfort in their opener on Thursday, August 10 and fell to St. Paul 14-25, 11-25 to close out action that day.
On Friday, the Lady Wolves took on Center Point and went three games before dropping a narrow 25-15, 23-25, 23-25 decision. They went another three games against Medina later that day, falling in another competitive match, 25-22, 23-25, 25-27.
In their lone contest on Saturday, the Lady Wolves took on Knippa and were swept in consecutive sets, 27-29 and 21-25.
Dilley was at Laredo Harmony on Tuesday evening, August 15 and will return home to host Carrizo Springs on Friday. The team will then be at Utopia on Tuesday, August 22 before taking part in the annual Lady Mavs Classic Volleyball Tournament on August 25-26.
