Owls come alive in set 2, thrash Lytle

After stumbling in the first set on Tuesday, Oct. 28, the Hondo volleyball team finished the season in strong fashion, coming back to dominate Lytle in four sets, 21-25, 25-11, 25-13, 25-12.

The Owls conclude the year with a 9-25 mark and a 2-8 record in District 29-AAAA.

Fredericksburg completed the perfect run through the district schedule at 10-0, with Boerne finishing as runner-up. Both are state-ranked in the latest Texas Girls’ Coaches Association 4A poll.

Devine and Bandera both finished 5-5 and tied for third place. Both have clinched playoff spots, but will play once more to determine the order of seeding. The third place playoff is this Friday, 4:30 p.m., in the Hondo Activities Center.

On Friday, OCt. 24, the Owls took the first set at Bandera, but the Lady Bulldogs came back to win in four, 20-25, 25-10, 25-10, 25-16.

In the Tuesday match at the Activities Center, which served as both Senior Night and Pink Out Night, the Owls were never able to get on track in the first set. Hondo led early, but Lytle was able to hang around, pulling ahead with a lead of as big as 17-12. The Owls got as close as one point, but a crucial Hondo communication error allowed the Lady Pirates to get the serve back at 23-21. From there, they finished the set.

The Owls stormed back in set 2, as Lytle scored only three points on serve. Hondo, meanwhile got two long service runs from Kalli Gardenhire, great front row work from Krisann Bendele and Justina Graff, and solid play all over the floor from Maddy Ainsley.

In the second set, the Owls led 16-12 when Tammy Ramirez went to the line and served Hondo all the way to set point.

A five-point service run from Graff in the fourth set put the Owls firmly in control at 15-5, and a three-point run with Ramirez on serve finished out the season.
