The Graford Lady Rabbits varsity volleyball team won three straight matches against Lingleville Tuesday in the girls’ first home match.
The Lady Rabbits took a 25–17, 25–18, 25–15 victory.
In earlier games, the girls visited Goldburg Aug. 26 and won in three sets, 25–11, 25–6 and 25–18.
“I felt we stayed in control the entire match,” reported Graford Coach Derek Wuthrich. “Our serving was the best it has been all year.
“Ali Brown served 13 straight points, which is what I love to see against teams that struggle to receive,” noted Wuthrich. “It was a good win for us, especially with starters being injured.”
On Aug. 28, the Lady Rabbits played in the Dublin tournament.
In the first game versus DeLeon, Graford suffered a loss 20 25, 16–25.
In the second game against Evant, Graford again fell, 16–25, 25–22 and 11–25.
Against Brownwood, Graford once more tasted defeat against the larger school, 21–25 and 3–25.
“We came out playing flat against DeLeon and made a lot of mistakes in the next set versus Evant,” explained Wuthrich. “Evant plays a different style that lets you attack, so they can set the ball up to get the ball back over.”
Wuthrich said they could not seem to take advantage of that, and wound up beating themselves.
