The Lady Saints volleyball team added to its win streak with a 3-0 victory over the Dodge city conquistadors. Although the Lady Saints swept the Conquistadors, it was not as easy as the score indicates.

Coach Thais Allen said, “They just match up well with us, they read us well, they block us well, it’s just a tough match against them.”

Kaysie Paxton said “ One of our goals is to reach nationals and I just look forward to Sunday, and we will be ready for nationals, we will be ready for our opponent.”
