Lady Blues grow as team in loss at Iowa Park

Moral victories do not count in the standings. What happened during Tuesday’s five-set loss at Iowa Park will not be told in the results or final record for the 2021 Lady Blues volleyball team. Tuesday night will go down as a loss to the Lady Hawks, 25-27,25-22, 25-16, 24-26, 16-14. What happened inside that loss will grow with the core of this team over the next two to three years.

The Lady Hawks entered the match with confidence. The team only graduated two seniors from a team that took last year’s Lady Blues team to five sets. The Lady Blues return two players from last year.

“(Iowa Park) is senior heavy and this is the season they were waiting for, much like last year was for us. Those girls look at this year as their year in the district and to make a run,” Lady Blues coach Marci Faulk said.
