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.
