Lady Rattlers sweep Juárez-Lincoln in three games

20120905-Sharyland-v-Juarez-Lincoln-Volleyball-018Lady Rattler Chelsea Saenz makes the dig Tuesday night as Sharyland took out Juarez-Lincoln in three straight games. Progress Times photo by Doug YoungMISSION – The Lady Rattlers recovered from a hard-fought loss against Edinburg Economedes over the weekend to sweep La Joya Juárez-Lincoln in three games on Tuesday at their home gymnasium.

Sharyland was led by senior outside hitter Elise Smith’s 15 kills and senior setter Sara Ramón’s 24 assists to defeat the Lady Huskies 25-6, 25-18, 25-13. The Lady Rattlers improved to 2-1 in District 30-5A with the victory over Juárez-Lincoln.

“I think right now we have to focus and we have to keep pushing from beginning to end, and not let up in the middle of the match,” Smith said. “After our loss (Economedes), which we were not expecting, we were ready to come out and work twice as hard, and we have been. We’re all aiming towards the same goal and it requires hard work to get there.”
