On Thursday, October 21, the Lady Mustangs played Dallas Christian at home to try and secure the district championship. The Student Life Center was packed for this highly anticipated match. The last time the Lady Mustangs played against Dallas Christian, they won in five sets. The Varsity Volleyball team was undefeated going into this game. The first set went to Dallas Christian 25-19. The second set went to the Lady Mustangs 25-14. The third set went to Dallas Christian 26-24. The Mustangs went into five sets, winning the fourth set with a score of 25-10. With sets tied, everyone tensed up anticipating the district championship. The fifth set went to Dallas Christian 15-13, and the Lady Mustangs lost their first district game of the season. Senior Bella Vaught lead with three aces and 25 digs. Sophomore Kaylin Starling lead the team with 13 kills and Junior Georgia Haggard had nine kills. When asked about the emotions during the game, Varsity Volleyball Coach Tara Ackmann responded, “It was a roller coaster of emotions. We could’ve beat them by 15 points, and then we could’ve lost the next set. We played really hard and now we have to get ready for the next game.”  Ready for redemption, senior Bella Vaught said, “Forget this game, were gonna get revenge next Tuesday.” The Mustangs will play against Dallas Christian on Tuesday, November 2 at 7 p.m. in Princeton.
