As the state’s No. 1 and the nation’s No. 14 ranked volleyball team, the Veterans Memorial High School (VMHS) Lady Patriots Tuesday took the first of six steps to bring a state championship home to VMHS for the first time in school history. That first step was winning their opening round playoff game against Corpus Christi Moody Tuesday evening.
Step 2 will be their area round game against the Victoria West Lady Warriors at Bishop High School tomorrow. The game time was not available as of press time.
With the straight sets win against Moody, the Lady Patriots improved their overall record this season to 40-0. Having won all but two of those games in straight sets is one indicator of how dominant Coach Diana Lerma’s squad has been all season. Another is that several of those wins were against 5A teams, including their 25-11, 25-16 and 25-23 warm-up game victory over the 15-1 Los Fresnos Lady Falcons last Saturday.
