The Lady Tarpons volleyball team closed out the district season Tuesday night with a straight-sets victory over the Rio Hondo Lady Bobcats at Tarpon Gym. They will now concentrate on preparing for their first-round playoff opponent, Raymondville, and the match is on for next Tuesday evening in Tarpon Gym.
As with last week’s match at PSJA Southwest, the scoring was consistent. Port Isabel won in three sets, 25-17, 25-20, 25-20. They trailed only briefly early in the second set and again from the start of the third set until they went ahead 13-12. It was tied at 20 before P.I. scored the final five points to close out the match.
Head coach George Hamilton was pleased with his team’s play overall but would like to have seen fewer mistakes. “I was glad that we fought hard but I was…disappointed because we made too many errors, especially unforced errors that kept them close.”
