Wednesday evening, our Lady Lions hosted the Horizon Science Academy Lady Hawks for the 2014 Senior Night. Lead by senior co-captains # 10 De’Asia Martin and # 15 Alana King-Mendenhall and fellow senior players #1 Raven Scott, # 4 Celiza “CeCe” Serna, # 30 Jocelyn James and # 32 Candra Branch, the Lady Lions defeated the Lady Hawks three sets to one.
In the first set, the Lions showed teamwork, skill and strength against the opposing team and were able to easily win with a score of 25-16. The second set was a tougher challenge; however, the Ladies pulled through with a score of 25-23.
Sadly, the Lions were unable to win three straight sets. A quick line-up change and some play errors allowed the Lady Hawks to jump ahead. Unable to recover, the team fell 18-25. Awakened by the closeness of the second set and the loss of the third, when it came time to play the fourth, the Lady Lions rose to the occasion. They showed without a doubt WHOSE HOUSE IT WAS. In a matter of minutes the game was over with a definitive score of 25-12.
To end the evening, coaches Danielle Robinson and Veronica Brownlee showed their appreciation to the players’ parents by giving them flowers. As for the seniors, they were given personalized jerseys as a keepsake.
