Volleyball Dealt Tough Road Loss

Sonora, TX – After trailing by two sets, the Lady Cougars battled back to win the third before suffering a 3-1 district road loss (23-25, 19-25, 25-23, 22-25) to the unbeaten defending district champ Sonora on Tuesday.

Compass Academy’s only two district losses this season have come at the hands of the Lady Broncos.  In the first meeting on September 25, Sonora visited the Cougar Den and won 3-2.  This time around, the Lady Cougars gave them all they could want.

Carleigh Jones led the Lady Cougars with 10 kills, two blocks, and a dig, while Kyra Ayers followed with six kills, two digs, and a pair of blocks. Paige Jones topped the chart with 12 assists, five digs, four kills, and two blocks.  Defensively, Kinzee Jamierson finished the evening with nine blocks and three kills. Camille Kubacak had seven blocks and three kills.

The opening set stayed even through much of the contest.  Four lead changes favored Sonora in the 25-23 first set.  The Lady Cougars found themselves down two sets after the Lady Broncos pulled out a 25-19 win in the second set.  With the threat of a sweep, Compass put forth its best effort in the third set.  Just as in the opening match, both teams would not yield an advantage of more than four points.  Down the stretch, the Lady Cougars gained momentum to claim a 25-23 win.

The fourth and final set remained close with Sonora taking an early 7-6 lead.  With Haley Stillwell serving, Compass rode a three-point surge to take the lead at 9-7.  Paige Jones ignited the next Cougar charge to give the Blue-and-White a 15-10 edge.  Sonora found a way to turn the tide and went on two power runs late in the set.  Knotted at 20-20, the Lady Broncos rallied for the 25-22 win to close out the evening up 3-1.

The Lady Cougars (3-2, 12-11) will turn their attention to Crane (1-3, 6-19) in another district road game. The contest is scheduled for Saturday.  The junior varsity will take the court at 10:00 a.m. and the varsity will follow at 11:00 a.m.  Go COOGrrr’s!
