"We saw some intense volleyball today that will really help with our regionals this week.The girls played with eveyrthing they had the first three matches but then struggled off and on the next two matches. We gave Edwards County their first loss in a set all season so we are very proud about that. The girls really had to battle against these big teams but they found ways to get the ball down."
