GC Volleyball Roundup: Corsicana falls to John Tyler

Corsicana — The Tigers showed again how much they’ve improved as a volleyball team Friday afternoon.

It just didn’t result in a win.

Corsicana lost to Tyler John Tyler 25-19, 23-25, 25-16, 25-22 at Tiger Gym.

The Tigers (2-6 in district) won the second set to take momentum into the rest of the match. The hitting of John Tyler took over.

Tyler made four straight kills at 11-10 in third set and the Tigers never threatened in the third set. Corsicana played much better in the final set.

Two kills by Rebecca Bentz gave the Tigers an early 5-4 lead. And even though Tyler eventually shot out to a 17-12 lead, the Tigers rallied to within a point to 20-19 and had the set at 24-22 before Tyler closed out the win.

The Tigers led most of the first half of set one as Becca Bentz had four kills. But Tyler tied the set at 15-15 and then reeled off 7 of 8 points to take control.

Corsicana did the rallying in the second set — twice. The Tigers were down 12-7 but came back to tie it at 18-18. The Tigers led 22-20 but Tyler made three straight points to lead 23-22. The Tigers then won the last three points. Briana Biltz had a kill and two errors on serves by Tamera White gave the Tigers the set.

Frost 3, Bynum 2

Jae Moore had 22 kills and Kadee Bowling added 11 as Frost survived Bynum in a five-game match.

The Lady Bears won the first two games, 25-19 each, but Bynum rallied to take the next two, 25-20 and 25-22.

Frost would win the finale, 16-14, as Moore collected seven kills and Bowling had four. Dakota Lassiter has two aces in the final game.

Lassiter had five aces on the night, while Sabrina Jameson led the Lady Bears with six. Lassiter had 23 assists, and Hillaree Schwartz had 16.

    She prayed about it. She lost sleep about it. And she prayed about it some more.
    That's just a glimpse of what Marqueshia Kelly went through before deciding to turn down a half dozen basketball scholarships and accept a scholarship to play volleyball at Paris Junior College.
    The journey might have been a little sleepless, but in the end it wasn't that tough for Kelly, who is a multi-sport star at Kerens.
    “I followed my heart,'' she said on Tuesday just moments after signing a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Paris in front of family, coaches and friends.
