The Maywood Volleyball team hosted Hitchcock County on Tuesday, September 16th, where the Lady Tigers had lost in four straight sets. In the first set, the Lady Tigers had shown a strive to win as they dove for every stray ball and fought for their points. Hitchcock County had seemed shocked as Maywood had almost gained a lead on them by the end of the first quarter, but it wasn’t enough as at the end Hitchcock pulled out ahead with the first set ending at 30-38. In the second set Maywood had began to slow down, as Hitchcock continued in scoring. The second set score ended at 16-25.

Going into a third set Maywood began to lack determination to win, as Hitchcock  continued to pound the ball towards the Tigers. The Tigers lost the third set at 12-25. In the fourth set Maywood had began to pick up their pace a bit, but it just wasn’t enough as Hitchcock finished taking on the win. The final set of the night ended at 13-25.

“We just can’t seem to put together a complete game. Hitchcock County hustled and got to every ball we tried to put down. We just aren’t messing well at this point. We just need to go back to the basics and see what changes we need to make. I know that these girls want to win.” Said head coach Les Reinke.
