Groesbeck battled against some tough competition this past week and a half.
The Lady Goats opened up the season with a tri-match against both Palestine and Teague last Tuesday, Aug. 9.
The girls fought through four strong sets against the Ladycats in the first Tuesday match, falling to their east Texas opponent, 3-1, and split four sets with Teague before dropping the tie-breaker fifth set by two, 15-25, 10-25, 27-25, 25-20, 14-16.
Against the Lady Lions, Groesbeck was down 2-0, but came back to win the third set by two and the fourth by five points to force a tie-breaker situation.
The Lady Goats rested up on Wednesday, but returned to action on Thursday in the Van Tournament.
The girls took the first match against Eustace, 28-26, 25-15, led by Abby Johnson’s 11 set assists and a combined 13 kills by Haley DeFriend (6) and Kylee Weishuhn (7). Alyssa Anglin had 11 digs in the sweep win.
