Lady Saints close in on another win

It’s safe to say that the Lady Saints volleyball team has been displaying superlative teamwork in every set they play. The team had their first home game against the Dodge City Community College Conquistadors, and took the match in a sweep of three sets. From the beginning of their match, the Lady Saints took the lead and stayed in the lead for the first two sets of the game. Thayna Silva put the team in the lead with consistant kills, and quick defense made sure that the team kept their lead throughout the first set, as well as the second. As the team moved into their third set of the game, the gap between the Saints’ and Conquistadors’ began to shrink. The Lady Saints stayed in the lead, but not for too long. The score tied at 5 then the Conquistadors stole the lead four points later. The lead went back and forth between teams, and the Conquistadors were once again able to tie the score. When the score got up in the twenties, the pressure running through the Lady Saints became very apparent, as they would score and then make an error that would almost give up their lead. At a score of 23-21, the Lady Saints lost their lead to the Conquistadors, but were able to tie the score at 23 with a kill and an error on Conquistadors’ behalf. The Lady Saints weren’t willing to lose so easily. Another error at the net from the Conquistadors and a block from Alex Wood gave Seward the win they were looking for.
