It was the tale of two halves Friday night at Newton Field as the Steers hosted Springtown for their annual meeting.
The Lady Blues held their “home opener” Tuesday night at Graham High School. It could be argued that the Lu Allen Memorial Volleyball Tournament was a home opener.
The lasting memory from Friday night’s season-season opening game will not be the large number of mistakes made by the victorious Steers or their visitors, the Alvarado Indians.
The Lady Blues faced another tough test Tuesday at Boyd. The 3A No. 5 ranked Lady Yellowjackets were the better team, but the Lady Blues did not back down in a 25-14, 25-14, 26-24 loss.
After missing last year due to COVID-19-related cancellations, the Lady Blues played in their home tournament this weekend.
