Mexia struggles against La Vega

With only one match to go before the Ladycats begin district play, coach Sherri Cain is still hoping to see her team put it all together to make a playoff run.

“We have got to put all the pieces together,” Cain said following a loss to La Vega Tuesday. “Right now our inexperience is continuing to hurt us, but these players are still trying to fill very big shoes.”

The strong service game and big hitters on La Vega’s front line overwhelmed Me­xia Tuesday to post a three-game victory (25-20, 25-9, 25-13).
