After winning their first three matches, the Lady Lobo volleyball team has been on a downward spin, suffering six straight losses.
The Lady Lobos made the trip to Ft. Thomas High School to take on the Lady Apaches only to return with a four set loss. The Lobos must have been tired, suffering a 10 to 25 first set loss able to only score four service points. The Lobos returned the favor in the second set holding the Apaches to only four service points winning the set 25 to 13. The next two sets were hard fought and close with Lady Lobos dropping both with scores of 22 to 25 and 20 to 25 to suffer their fifth straight loss.
Up next for the Lady Lobos was a visit by a tall Lady Miner team from San Manuel High School. The first set was close and exciting with the play at the next very good by both teams. The hard spiking by the Miners won out, taking the first set 23 to 25. The second set was all Miners as the Miners’ fourth server went to the line and fit for 12 service points when the Lobos could not get their spikes in the lines losing 11 to 25. The third and final set was another close and exciting set. With the Lobos taking a big lead, their movement, talking and spiking went away allowing the Miner spikes to land finally losing the set and match 22 to 25 to suffer their sixth straight loss and a season record of three wins against six losses.
Their schedule still shows no mercy with three tough matches starting with the very long trip to St. Johns High School yesterday followed by home matches against Miami High School on today and Ray High School on Thursday. The Lobos will travel to Pima High school on Saturday to play in the Lady Roughrider Volleyball Invitational.
