Lady Gators Win Another One on the Road

Lady Gators Win Another One on the Road

After a tough week of travel, the Lady Gators ended their road trips with a win. Yesterday, the Gators traveled over to Thomasville High School for a one team play date. Both teams played hard and it was a battle to the end. In the first game, the Lady Gators and the Lady Bulldogs would trade points back and forth. Finally, senior, Sutton Rollins would go on a winning streak and served three straight aces for the game. The Lady Gators won the first game with a score of 25-23. In the second game, the Lady Gators started off slow, and allowed the Lady Bulldogs to take a 7 to 1 lead. "We struggled in our passing game and could not break their serve." said Coach Alesia Gibson. After a time out, the Lady Gators would fight back and make it a 7-7 tie. This time, a junior stepped up her game. Makayla Tyre went in a serving streak and served for six straight points with two aces. The Lady Gator would prevail by a score of 25-21 in order to take the match. "As a coach, I felt that we played our best out of all the games that were played this week. Hopefully, on Monday, we can get back to practice so we can eliminate the simple mistakes on the court."
