Lady Eagles fall to Wylie

— By GREG WEBB

BROCK — There were plenty of crowd-pleasing long rallies in a non-district volleyball contest on Tuesday, as the defending Class 2A champs Brock hosted the current holders of the Class 3A crown, Abilene Wylie. The first two games were tight to the end, but momentum left the home team on this night, as Brock fell in three sets to the Lady Bulldogs, 22-25, 22-25, 10-25.

Brock took an early lead in the opening game, building up a five-point cushion at 12-7, but unforced errors let Wylie back into the set, as they caught and passed the Lady Eagles down the stretch.

Brock’s young squad consists of a lone senior, three sophomores and the balance of the roster made up of juniors, but showed some stellar moments of composure against the Lady Bulldogs, but the unforced miscues eventually decided their fate.

“When your playing the defending 3A state champs and more than half of their points come off of errors, that’s never good,” said Brock head coach Keith Guyon. “By Game 3 [Wylie] got on a roll and we had trouble breaking their serve. 

“And their main hitter, one of the best in the state at the 3A level got pretty hot.”

Brock has had considerable success through 18 games, sitting at 14-4 after the Wylie match, but Guyon sees plenty of room for improvement for the young team.

“We had plenty of opportunities in the match, particularly in the first two games,” Guyon said, “We just made some late errors.

“But that’s the reason we have this schedule [before district starts], playing the 3A champ tonight and than we’ll play the 1A champions [Jewett Leon] on Friday.”

Brock will face Leon during the White Oak Tournament, set for Friday and Saturday.

With other quality teams left in its pre-district schedule, including Springtown, Krum and Argyle, the Lady Eagles are hoping to finish tuning up before the district slate begins on Sept. 27, when they travel to play at Paradise.
