BANGS - The Bangs Lady Dragons snapped a two-game losing streak and evened their District 8-2A record at 2-2 with a 25-20, 25-21, 25-16 win over Dublin here Tuesday night.
Bangs (22-10 overall) opened district play with a victory against Colorado City on Sept. 27, then followed with losses to Grape Creek and Eastland. The Lady Dragons are looking to make their fifth straight appearance in the postseason.
“This was a good win for us and one that we needed to even up our district record,” said Bangs first-year head coach Meredyth Meador. “We made some changes on the floor and the girls adjusted well. They played as a unit and I was proud of them.”
Laryn Cantu led the Lady Dragons with six kills, followed by five from Drea Evers, three each from Sarah Bartek and Nett Evers, two from Taylor Beck and Kierstin Williams and one from LeCrecia Apple.
Apple also served four aces, Kelsey Laird chipped in two and one came from Drea Evers.
Beck also finished with a team-high 40 assists.
“We had more problems with our hitting than I expected, but there were not a lot of mistakes from the service line, which kept us in it,” Meador said.
The Lady Dragons will be back in action Saturday when they visit Ranger at 10 a.m. in a non-district match. Bangs will resume District 8-2A action on Tuesday when it hosts defending district champion Grape Creek at 7 p.m.
