On Friday, September 24, the Ponder Lady Lions volleyball team traveled to Callisburg to take on the Lady Wildcats.  The first set was a close one with Callisburg eking out a win 25-22.  Ponder came out determined to win the next set, but fell short once again 25-20.  With the third and deciding set looming over them, the Lady Lions knew they had to pull on their reserves to really dig deep and pull out a win on this set or it was game over.  And that is just what they did, winning the third set 25-22.  In the fourth set,  Ponder once again had the burden of winning the next two sets in order to claim a victory and go to 4-1 in district, but it was not to be.  Callisburg pulled out a 4th set and final winning set of 25-21 cinching the victory.  The Lady Lions now move to 3-2 in district.  They will face Paradise at home on Tuesday, so let’s pack the stands and cheer them on to a victory!
