Lady Blues defeat Wylie in five-set marathon

The Lady Blues’ busy schedule was made slightly easier Thursday night. With the cancellation of Friday’s road game at Burkburnett, the Lady Blues no longer had to worry about taking on 5A No. 20 Wylie the next morning following a road game and the morning after homecoming. The Lady Blues defeated the visiting Bulldogs 23-25, 25-20, 25-16, 15-25, 15-9.

Lady Blues coach Marci Faulk and Bulldogs coach Shay Cox are no strangers as the two teams at one time played in the same district.

“Whenever you play Wylie, you know you’re going to get a tough match,” Faulk said. “They’ve always got a good team and they will test you.”
