RANGER — Thanks to their second consecutive straight-set victory, the Early Lady Horns have evened their overall record at 5-5

On the heels of Friday's road triumph over Zephyr, Early followed that with 25-17, 25-13, 25-9 road victory over Ranger Tuesday night.

“An outstanding win from these ladies,” said Early head coach Natalie Whitewood. “We started out a tad sluggish but quickly turned it around. I'm proud of their hustle and heart tonight.”

Alexa Portillo was successful on all 17 of her serves with three aces, as was Haley Spieckerman on her 11 serves. Carrigan Norris, Vance-Cady Gordon and Taylor Summers chipped in aces as well.

Gordon set up 48 attacks and tallied nine assists, as kill leaders included Gwen Phillips with seven, Trinity Tomlinson with five, Gordon, Summers and Portillo with three apiece and Norris with a pair.

Defensively, Tomlinson's 13 digs led the way trailed by 12 from Summers, 11 from Portillo, eight from Gordon, six each from Norris and Spieckerman, three from Khyla Bell and one from Phillips.

The Lady Horns will be back in action Friday and Saturday at the Bronte tournament.
