    (MIKE WILLIAMS | THE GRAHAM LEADER) Rachel Grimsley had 19 kills to lead the Lady Blues to a 27-25, 18-25, 25-23, 21-25, 18-16 win at home over Burkburnett Friday evening at Graham High School. Following the win, the Lady Blues jumped to 23rd in the TGCA volleyball poll.

Lady Blues need five sets to continue perfect district start

It did not look perfect, but the Lady Blue’s perfect start to the district schedule continued Friday evening at Graham High School. The match needed five sets and a fifth-set comeback, but the Lady Blues emerged victorious with a  27-25, 18-25, 25-23, 21-25, 18-16 homecoming win over the Lady Bulldogs of Burkburnett.

The Lady Blues struggled to contend with seniors Alashonte Massey and Tania Lee.

“They’re both tremendous athletes,” Lady Blues coach Marci Faulk said. “They can jump really high and both place really well in regionals in track also.”

Even when winning, the Lady Blues struggled to create and maintain any kind of consistency through the match. It was a match the Lady Blues will be happy to have in the victory column, but the team knows there is more work ahead.
