Lady Eagles at Columbus Tourney
The Lady Eagles, keeping to their tenet of playing quality teams, found a few at the Columbus Tourney. Lexington faced perennial power East Bernard in the first round. Before the match even began, Kristen Boettcher was called away for a family emergency. This caused shuffling of the rotation, and the girls were flat because of the changes. East Bernard prevailed in the first game of pool play 11-25, 11-25.
Sealy was the next team up for Lexington. Coach Salazar said, “There was a marked improvement in the girls’ play.” Sealy won in two games 17-25, 15-25.
Hallettsville was next for the Lady Eagles. Coach Salazar said, “This was the best we have played. We had good hits; passing was improved; and the team is gaining self assurance.” Hallettsville won the match 19-25, 17-25. All the Thursday games were pool play, which is used to determine placing for the tourney.
Lexington faced Victoria St. Joseph in the first game of the tourney. The Lady Flyers won in two games. The Lady Eagles went into the consolation side of the bracket.
The Lady Eagles defeated Luling in two games for their first taste of victory. This boosted the Lady Eagles into the consolation championship game against Hallettsville. The Lady Brahmas took the trophy, with a two game win over the Lady Eagles.
