Lovejoy High School
The Lady Leopards played extremely well against tough JV competition in the McKinney Tournament. Lovejoy battled to earn wins over Frisco Independence (25-22, 25-17) and Clark (25-16, 25-18) in pool play. Despite struggling with serve-receive against both teams, Lovejoy had twelve kills against Independence and thirteen against Clark.
In bracket play, Lovejoy took on Rockwall Heath (17-25, 14-25) and Prosper (9-25, 24-26). The Lady Leopards battled hard against a bigger Heath, but came up short in both sets. A slow first set against Prosper could not stop Lovejoy from trying to rally back, but they fell short in the second set. The tournament brings the Lady Leopards’ overall record to 5-2.
