On Tuesday, August 20th the Ponder Lady Lions volleyball team traveled to Lindsay to take on the Lady Knights. This game carried extra meaning for the team, as this was an opportunity to take on a former coach of theirs from last season. In a gym where the Ponder fan total rivaled that of the home team’s, both teams shot out of the gates and went back and forth in the opening set. Every time the Lady Lions would appear to start to pull away, Lindsay would battle back and make things difficult. Finally the Lady Lions were able to pull out a win 28-26 and carried huge momentum into the second set. The team used that momentum to put Lindsay away early in the second set, and cruised to a 25-16 victory. With the Lady Lions up 2-0, Lindsay was on it’s heels, and the team was able to with the 3rd set big as well, 25-14, securing the sweep over an old friend and the Lady Knights. Junior Cordie Ford led the attack above the net, setting a new season high for herself with 9 kills. Senior Kylee Anderson led the defensive effort with 16 digs and junior Averee Tipton added 10 of her own. With the win, the Lady Lions have worked their record back to .500 at 6-6 heading into a tournament at Argyle.
