Page 2B Hays Volleyball Continued from pg. 1 B 15, 25-23), and Hutto (28-26, 25 -22). Dezaray Garner had seven kills and Beck had three aces to lead Hays against Clear BrooL Against Hutto, Jessica Williams had seven aces and Ramsey added 17 assists for the Lady Rebs. On Friday, Hays picked up what would be its only win of the tournament with a 20-25, 25-14, 25-22 victory over Sharyland. Beck (14) and Garner riO) were both in double-figures in the kill column for the lady Rebels against Sharyiand, and Kelsea Sadler added nine "It was a solid comeback win where we showed a lot of heart after dropping the first game," Walther said. "The girls showed what they are capable of." Losses to Canyon (25-19, 21-25, 25-16) and Leander (25-18, 25-20) on Friday would guarantee the Lady Rebs a losing record for the second straight day. On Saturday, Hays'West- wood Toumament experi- ence ended with a (25-19, 26- 24) loss to Caidwell. Beck had eight kills and Ramsey totaled 14 assists in the defeat. Walther said the team came away from the tourna- ment with valuable experi- ence. "We know we definitely need to work on our block- ingf she said. "We're sting- gling against teams with quick offensive sets. Often- sively, we have great hitters, but we have to work on see- hag the court and hitting the ball to specific spots. We're just not making the best deci- sions on where to set and hit the ball right now." Despite the fact that about half of the team are newcom- ers to the varsity level this sea- son, Walther said she expects to see improvement from the Lady Rebels. "We have all the tools," Walther said. "We just need a little fine tuning with so many young players on the court." Things won't get any easier for the Lady Rebels in the near future, as Hays plays a regular season game against Lake Travis this week before opening pool play in the FrauleinVoneyfest in New Braunfels against Westlake. LakeTravis is the No. I team in Class 4A andWestlake is the No. 2 team in Class 5A. "I hope our girls don't lose their confidence, but I hope playing against this type of competition makes them realize the little things they need to do to be successful," Walther said. "I also hope it leads to wins later in the season." Hays will also play against Victoria East and StephenviUe in pool play at the Fraulein Volleyfest, which is the second largest tournament in Texas, beginning onThursday.
