Trekking to Morgan City to play in the Central Catholic tournament was not easy on the Lady Patriot volleyball team. However, they fought hard through weariness on Saturday to make the tournament championship. The tournament started with two wins on Thursday against Ascnesion Catholic and Houma Christian. The team did not drop a single set in the two games on Thursday. They returned early Saturday morning to face South Lafourche and defeated them 2-0, as well. The Patriots then lost their 4th game of the tournament in a tough contest to Ascension Episcopal 2-1. However, the Patriots made the tournament semi-finals where they would face the tournament host. In the semi-finals, the Patriots bested Central Catholic 2-1 in a great contest. The Patriots took game 1, 25-15 before losing game 2, 25-23. That set up the deciding game 3 to see who would advance to the tournament championship. The Patriots were able to win that game 15-11 to advance. They ran out of steam in the championship against Lafayette Christian, but fought hard in both sets, dropping the first 25-15 and the second 25-22. Although they came up a little bit short, the Patriots fought hard and gained some valuable experience in a tournament format.
The Lady Patriots have a home contest on Monday against Riverdale with the JV starting at 4:30 and the varsity beginning at approximately 5:30.
