Jags blow past Memorial in three straight
Sophomore Brianna Dugi goes up for a block during the Jaguars’ straight-games win over Memorial last week.
FLORESVILLE -- When the Jaguar volleyball team entered district play, it had just as many wins as it did losses. The Jags picked up a 3-0 win over Kennedy to start District 29-4A competition, though, and the girls repeated their success with a 3-0 win over Memorial on Sept. 17.
Floresville hosted the Lady Minutemen, and wasted little time in putting points on the board. The Jags quickly scored the first point of the match, and while Memorial soon tied the score at 1-1, Rebecca Jordan and Kristyn Coldewey took over and led Floresville to a 5-1 lead. The Lady Minutemen fought back, and scored on a number of Floresville errors, but continued to trail throughout the first game. The Jags appeared as though they were going to run away with things, but stumbled a bit after leading 22-15. Memorial hung in to make it a 24-21 game, but Coldewey hammered down a kill to end things at 25-21.
Coldewey picked up right where she left off in the first game by scoring the Jags’ first point of the second with a thunderous kill over the middle. A service error by Floresville tied things up, and Memorial then took its first lead of the night at 2-1.
Memorial soon led by the score of 4-1, but that was as close as the Lady Minutemen would ever get to a win. Floresville won a point and the side out, and Alexis Mandigo took the serve as the Jags tied the game and then took a 7-4 lead. Floresville had several good runs, and continued to increase its lead throughout the game. Micheala Sifuentes took the serve following a vicious Coldewey kill to make the score 17-10, and the Jaguars rattled off 6 more points for a 23-10 advantage. The Lady Minutemen got a side out to slow the momentum, but the Jags won the next 2 points for a 25-11 victory and a two-games-to-none lead in the match.
Memorial won the first 2 points of the third game, but Brianna Dugi picked up a kill to put Floresville on the board. The Lady Minutemen earned the next point, and Coldewey gave the serve back to Floresville with one of her 16 kills on the night. The Jags won the following point to tie the game at 3-3.
With an 8-5 lead, Floresville looked like it was on track to another win, but Memorial got on a run, tying the game at 8-8, and pulling ahead to an 11-8 advantage. A little dump over the net from Sarina Thompson stopped the run, and the Jags started to crawl their way back into the game.
Trailing by the score of 15-11, Jewel Jimenez took the serve for Floresville and led the Jags on a 10-point run. With great serving from Jewel, along with some good kills from Jade Jimenez, and from Serena Rivas off the back row, Floresville tied the game and then took a 21-15 lead over the Lady Minutemen, prompting Memorial’s coach to call a timeout.
The timeout worked for a moment, as Memorial earned the side out, but a hitting error gave the point and serve back to Floresville, and the Jags ran it out for a 25-16 win, giving them a 3-0 match victory.
Coldewey led the offensive effort with 16 kills on the night, followed by Jade Jimenez with seven, and Dugi with five. Sifuentes moved the ball around en route to a 30-assist night, and several players racked up aces on the night, with Sifuentes pacing her team with five. Jewel Jimenez led the team with 12 digs, while Gabriella Soria pulled up another 10. Coldewey registered four blocks.
The win keeps the Jags above .500 on the season, and gave them a perfect district mark of 2-0. Floresville was scheduled to face Southside on Sept. 20, and Uvalde on Sept. 24. The next home match will be Friday, Sept. 27.
