The LCA Middle School Lady Lions came off of the long weekend with a roar, defeating Haymon Morris in three of the four sets played on Tuesday, September 4, at Haymon Morris Middle. The Lions A-team started off the night playing some of the longest rallies they have seen all season. Haymon Morris didn’t take it easy on them, but the Lions handled it all with great skill. The A-team setters, Isabelle Gary and Kylie Nash, were solid the whole match, making it possible for the Lions hitters to play aggressively at the net and score point after point. Ella Morris had one of her strongest matches ever as the team’s top server and as an unbreakable force at the net. The Lions defeated Haymon Morris in just two sets (25-19, 25-23). This puts the A-team with an overall record of 2-3.
The Lions B-team also had a great night, winning one of their two sets against Haymon Morris (26-24, 17-25). Sydney Stewart and Scarlet Gary were the team’s top servers. All the B-team Lions played well, but Camryn Fleming stood out from the crowd with the huge improvements she showed in both her serving and overall play, making several critical plays that led to the Lions success. Madison Reece also made a big impact on the match with the incredible ball control she showed throughout. It was an exciting match from start to finish and leaves the B-team with an overall record of 2-3. The Lions play again at home on Thursday, September 6, against rival Hebron Christian Academy. Come out and support your Lions!
