Anahuac volleyball falls in 5
The host Lady Panthers fell 3-2 (25-22, 11-25, 22-25, 25-17, 15-9) to Deweyville Tuesday night.
Maci Bennett and Bree Anderson led the Anahuac (9-13) attack.
"The Anahuac gym was booming with spirit from our student section and the girls were riding the momentum with kill after kill," Anahuac head coach Laura Brandon said. "After some delays in the game from the officials we slowly lost our momentum. This was a tough loss to swallow. We hope to meet up with Deweyville again this weekend at the YMBL tournament.
