The Lady Warriors fought the Round Rock Dragons in a game that ended in the opponent’s favor with a score of 3-1 on Friday, Oct. 20 at Round Rock High School. Overall, it was a great game on both parts, filled with suspense and dramatically entertaining.

Though the first set was very close, it went to Round Rock, the final score being 25-22. The Lady Warriors near the end of the set pushed to increase their points with incredible blocks and aces. Maddi Kriz ‘19 was able to get four serves in before Round Rock made a point, allowing the score to become very close throughout the rest of the set.

In the second set, Westwood took the win with a score of 13-25. The Lady Warriors had lots of great back to back plays from players such as Kriz, Maggie Stout ‘19, Emily Low ‘18, and Kenzie Beckham ‘21. Lauren Gregorczyk ‘18 served seven times in a row, giving Westwood the lead and allowing Kriz to finalize the win with a strong kill.

The third set was a nail-biter from start to finish. With every gained point came the other team catching up in a matter of plays. Westwood won the first point and were very persistent with their scoring; however Round Rock captured the set with a score of 25-22.

The final set, much like the third, had the audience on the edge of their seats and the Lady Warriors giving their all. Westwood snagged the first point and contributed a constant line of kills from Kriz, Low, Stout, and Audrey Quesnel ‘20. Despite the Lady Warriors delivering these hits, aces, and blocks, the Dragons won the final set 25-20, giving them the win.

“We played well but didn’t play our best. I liked how we kept fighting the whole time even though we couldn’t pull through,” Gregorczyk said.

The team’s next game will be against Hendrickson High School on Oct. 24th at 6:30 p.m..
