Lone Pine Volleyball drops DML match at Vasquez
The Lone Pine High School Golden Eagles Volleyball team dropped a Desert Mountain League match Tuesday at Vasquez. Lone Pine heads back to the road Thursday for another DML match in Mammoth.
Coach Mel Joseph’s report:
Action, CA – Lone Pine traveled to Action on Tuesday and fell in four games to the Mustangs. Vasquez won game one 25-11, Lone Pine won game two 25-18. Then in game three with the score 6-3, Lone Pine’s senior middle blocker Katie Lacey came down on a Vasquez player at the net injuring her ankle and have to leave the match. Playing with seven players, one of whom is a Libero, the Lady Eagles had to finish game three with only five players having to take a side out (and a point earned for Vasquez) each time Lone Pine rotated to Lacey’s service rotation. Lone Pine lost game three 25-14. Game 4 Lone Pine placed Libero Lacie Jones into a regular jersey and inserted her into the middle blocker position giving the Lady Eagles six players on the court. Lone Pine lost game four 25-20. With the loss, Lone Pine is now 6-4 in DML, 10-10-2 overall.
