Globe — It was a difficult and trying day for the Lady Tigers on Thursday as they hosted a game against the Morenci Wildcats. Thus far, the ladies of Globe have proven themselves, recording victories and making some outstanding strides as a team, but unfortunately, Morenci was just slightly more prepared.

The Wildcats took the win, winning 3 games in a row with scores of 25-10, 25-15, and 28-26.

Despite the fact that they lost the games, the girls made some truly great serves, spikes and showed invaluable communication and teamwork. With only three games played, the Lady Tigers were able to hold out against their opponents for close to two hours. The girls played a fantastic game and truly gave it their all.

Dezirae Nelee had an exceptional performance with 9 kills and a great hitting percentage.

Kelsea White was all over the court backing up her team and was able to round up 10 assists in the 3 games.

Ronnie Begay had an amazing 30 digs as well, playing defense the whole time and stuffing Morenci’s taller players as they attempted to hit from the net.

The Lady Tigers are still confident, however, that despite this loss, they will be able to go a lot further this season and come together even more as a team, showing all devoted volleyball fans a great game, every game.

Globe played the Miami Vandals yesterday (Tuesday, Sept. 25 in Miami; see next week’s Silver Belt for coverage).

Next up, the girls be on the road to take on Fort Thomas on Thursday, Sept. 27, before hosting a home game against Fort Thomas on Oct. 2.

Good luck, girls and congratulations on a game well played.
