Lady Eagles Have no Cure for LV

by Mike Organ

The District 25-AA leading Lago Vista Lady Vikings sank the Lady Eagles in three games Tuesday night. The volleyball game was the centerpiece of the "Volley for the Cure" night sponsored by Lexington, who received great cooperation from Lago Vista. Both teams wore pink socks, hair ribbons, and sweatbands.

The first game of the match was very competitive. The teams battled evenly until late in the game when LV took a slight lead, making it stand up for a 20-25 win. This looked like the team Coach Robertson had been looking for all year long.

Game two continued with the script of game one until the score was 9-9. It was then the wheels came off the Lexington volleyball buggy. LV ran off nine straight points to take a commanding 18-9 lead. The game was essentially over at that point.

Game three was more of the latter part of game two. As Lexington continued to fall apart, LV was gaining steam. Lexington's bumps became more ricochets off forearms, elbows, etc. The Lady Eagles never stopped trying but the nice digs and returns that were there in game one had left the building.

The "Volley for the Cure" night was a huge success. The donation box at the gate generated over $150 and the T-shirt sales and cake raffle generated an approximated $1,000 for the Lee County Area Cancer Resource Center. The Center is headed by cancer survivor Carolyn Jackson. Several Lexington residents are volunteers for the center. The effort by the Lady Eagles and Coach Robertson will touch many in the Lee County area.

The Lexington JV lost to Lago Vista 18-25. The Freshman team also lost 21-25 and 19-25.
