    The varsity volleyball team took the court against Lewisville High School Tuesday night. It was the second game of district, a victory that would take them one step closer to making the playoffs. The game was best out of five, and although the varsity team lost this game, they still have opportunities to take them to playoffs. The team scored a victory in game one, 25 to 17.

        “We didn’t let Lewisville… get in our head,” senior Mackenzie Pearson said. “They have a pretty good setter, and we didn’t let her really run the court like she usually does. We shut her down pretty quick.”

            The second game brought fans to their feet. But, Lewisville took the lead and won the second game, ending with a score of 25 to 19.

            “We let up and we let our heads take control,” Pearson said. “We had mental errors and we… let them get a lot of runs, and we couldn’t stop them from scoring.”

            Lewisville also won the third and fourth games, 25 to 15 in the third and 25 and 13 in the fourth. Although Tuesday night ended in a loss for the varsity team, Pearson said this loss only motivated them to improve to achieve their ultimate goals: having a winning record at the end of district and making playoffs. The game impacted their mindset of future games.

            “I think it showed us that we can’t expect to win,” senior Darby Humphries said. “We can’t take anything lightly.”

            Junior Brittany Flanagan said the team hopes to improve their mental game and give everything they have in the upcoming games. The next district game for varsity is today at Marcus against Coppell at 6:30 PM.

            “We have to play our game every single time we step out on the court,” Flanagan said.
