Lady Gator Volleyball Netters Split Road Match

The Lady Gators went on the road Thursday to face a region opponent, the South Effingham Lady Mustangs and a non-region opponent, the Savannah Arts Academy Lady Panthers. The Gators began the night very slow and lost to the Lady Mustangs. In the first game, the score was 25-6. "We failed to do anything right and only scored 6 points," said Coach Alesia Gibson. "It seemed as though we were playing in slow motion with no hype or energy. Although we lost the match, the girls played a lot better in the second game and scored 17 points "

 

 In the second match, the Lady Gators would take on the Lady Panthers. The Lady Gators would win the first game with the score of 25-23. However, the Lady Panthers would fight back to take the second game 25-17. "In this match, the girls were hyped, their energy was up, and I finally saw what we have struggled with all season," said Coach Gibson. "The determination to finish and close out a tough match with a win." The third game was close, and with the score tied 12-12, the Lady Gators would step up their game to win the match 15-13.   

 

 9th Grade Lady Gators

The Lady Gators lost to the Lady Mustangs. The Lady Mustangs won in two straight sets with the scores of 26-24 and 25-23. "The girls played well enough to win, but a couple of crucial mistakes at the wrong time in each game, hurt us," said Coach Hannah Bennett. "In both games, we only lost by 2 points." 

 

All of the Lady Gators Netters will be back in action on Tuesday. They will travel over to Brunswick HS for a play date.
