Lady Steers ease up on To'hajillee
The Lady Steers backed off their game some on Oct. 31 against the To'hajiilee Warriors, still pulling off a 3 – 0 win, advancing their winning streak to six and an 18-2 record, 12-0 in their district. Non-starters and some junior varsity teammates were rotated in during the second and third game, causing a tighter game for the second set. This play time will be valuable experience for less experience players next year, when Magdalena loses six graduating seniors, four of whom starters.
Senior Tristen Dunlap dominated kills with four of nine attack attempts. Breann Baca, Abigail Bullock and Kadie Kiehne each had six digs, demonstrating the tone of the game. Ashley Tofoya took the most serve receives with a total of 14.
The Lady Steers' win earned them home advantage for their match-up with the To'hajiilee Warriors again this week. They play tonight at 6 p.m.
