The second match on the day didn’t fare much better, as Wortham dropped both sets to Ft. Worth Castleberry, 10-25, 20-25, but the Lady Bulldogs fought back in their last match of the day to defeat the McGregor Lady Bulldogs in two, 25-14, 25-18.
Kayla Lansford and Ashley Mao led the front court with a combined 47 kills and 11 blocks. Lansford finished the day with 26 kills, 16 digs on defense, along with eight blocks and served up three aces.
