Going into Tuesday night’s match with the Madisonville Lady Mustangs, the Mexia Ladycats had their hands full, especially playing in their gym, but hung on to pick up their fifth district win in four sets, 22-25, 25-11, 25-23, 25-23.
Mexia struggled from the start and quickly found themselves down by eight mid-way in the first set, 10-18.
The Ladycats climbed back in after Keiana Keith smashed a kill shot and Precious Daily served up a few points to cut Madisonville’s advantage down to two at 22-24, but an untimely hitting error by Mexia helped the Lady Mustangs to the win and they led the match 1-0.
