The Lady Knights Finish Off Regular Season In District Play
The Lady Knights finished off their regular season district play last week with three more games. On Monday they traveled to Conroe to play Lifestyle Christian. Despite being down two of their starters, the Lady Knights came out serving and passing strong and won the first two games easily. In the third set, the team struggled to maintain control of the game with too many hitting, service, and passing errors and lost the game. In game four the Lady Knights bounced back and once again took control of the game and won easily which finished off the game. “We made way too many hitting and serving errors that game. The girls learned that game to take seriously every little missed hit and serve because it adds up in games!” commented Coach Dawson after the game. Olivia Catlett was the top hitter with 12 kills, and her sister Julie Catlett was right behind her with 11 kills. Freshman Regan Woodley was the team’s top server going 16 for 16 with 3 aces.
On Tuesday the Lady Knights hosted at home the number two team in their district, Calvary Baptist. The Lady Knights breezed through game one, but in game two, with too many service errors, they had to fight to the bitter end but won 27-25. The team went on to fight hard and win game three. For their last district game on Thursday, the Lady Knights played Covenant Academy at home and won in three games which clinched the spot as district champions! Lacy Phillips led the team in serving with 7 aces, and Chrislyn Turner was right behind her with 5 aces. Olivia Catlett hit hard and finished the game with 17 kills. Isabella Schoenborn led the team in passing with a 2.4 average. The Lady Knights head into playoffs this week and host Orange Community Christian School at home on Tuesday at 5:00.
