Varsity Volleyball

Tournament Trail Ends for Royals

By: Todd Enders, “Royal Times”

The Wynford Lady Royals (17-7) ran into a very skilled Huron Tigers (19-4) team on Thursday in a district semifinal matchup at Seneca East High School. The Tigers defeated the Royals, 25-19, 25-17, 25-22. 
In set one, each team traded points before the Royals called a timeout with the score 11-7, slowing the Tigers momentum. The Royals could only manage to get within three points of Huron at 22-19 with a change in their normal defensive look. Coach Hurles said, “Our girls bought into our defensive change for the match which took the Huron hitters out of their offensive system.  When you have good hitters like Huron, our girls could not afford any unforced errors to allow the Tigers any momentum.” The Tigers eventually won the set with the help of unforced errors by the Royals, 25-19. 
In set two, Huron and Wynford volleyed there way to a 9-9 tie. Huron ran off two straight points before a Wynford timeout at 11-9. The timeout did not slow the Tigers, as they increased their lead to 17-11. Huron displayed great defensive play the entire set, as they routinely dug the Royals kill attempts, winning the set 25-17. 
The Royals would not give up easily in set three, falling down early 5-0. Wynford fought back, down 8-4, before calling a timeout at 11-5 when Huron began to pull away with a series of strong kills. During the timeout, Coach Hurles stressed to the girls, “Its a decision you have to make, you either live or go home.” At this point in the set, the seniors on the floor bought in and the underclassmen followed. The Royals gave the Tigers all they could handle in set three. After the timeout, Wynford fought back and took the lead 13-12. After taking the lead, Wynford could not finish off Huron. The set was tied at 14, 15, 18, 20, and 21 before the Tigers ended the Lady Royals season, 25-22. 
The Lady Royals volleyball team finished the season with an overall record of 17-8 and a Northern 10 league record of 13-5.
