Tough Week For Leyton


September 22, 2022 | View PDF

Leyton's Lady Warrior Volleyball team, after opening their season with a 6-and-2 record, had a tough week and dropped four matches to drop them to 6-and-6 on the season.

On Friday they hosted Anselmo-Merna for Homecoming, and the Lady Coyotes were in control for the first two sets of the match, winning 25-to-18 and 25-to-17. But Leyton fought back hard in the third set, pushing the set to extra points, but they could not pull out the win, falling 26-to-24 for the 3-to-0 loss.

On Saturday, the Lady Warriors had tournament play, and first faced Bayard. After Leyton won the first set 25-to-18, Bayard fired back taking the second set 25-to-13 and the third set 25-to-20 for the 2-to-1 match victory. After Bayard, the Lady Warriors matched up against Bridgeport, and a tight first set ended in a 25-to-23 win for Bridgeport which was followed by a 25-to-19 second set victory for the Lady Bulldogs, giving them the 2-to-0 match victory. Next up, the Lady Warriors faced Perkins County, and after a slow first set that Leyton dropped 25-to-12, the Lady Warriors recovered in the second set for a 25-to-21 victory. The teams battled hard in the third set, but Perkins County pulled away at the end for a 25-to-19 win and a 2-to-1 match victory.

The Lady Warriors were scheduled for a triangular against Bayard and Garden County on Tuesday, and then travel to Kimball to match up with the Lady Longhorns and the Hay Springs Lady Hawks on Thursday.
