Lewisville High School Volleyball hit Marcus hard Tuesday night, coming out on top over Marcus. The match lasted 4 sets, with Lewisville winning the first two 25-9 and 25-18 due to hard-hitting from the offensive side. However, unable to put the match to rest, the Lady Farmers were forced to go into a fourth set after Marcus won 25-20. Lewisville senior RS Nnenna Ijoma explained that the team was unable to win in three due to a breakdown in communication.

“In the third set, I think we lost communication and our defense broke down,” Ijoma said.

In addition to fixing some errors in the communication, the Lewisville players were encouraged by their coach during the timeouts, reminding them that the girls are making history, finally beating Marcus on the Marauder’s court.

“We’ve never beat Marcus on their home court,” Ijoma said.

In the future, Lewisville will make sure to keep playing full of energy, and to continue hitting hard.

“[Coach Rodriguez was saying] we make sure we keep our energy up, that we’re hitting hard, and not being babies, honestly,” Ijoma said.

Lewisville finished in set 4, winning 25-17. The Lady Farmers will continue their season Tuesday October 6 against Hebron, at Lewisville at 7:00 p.m.
