With a close call from a line judge in the fourth set, the Lady Timberwolves were defeated by their rival, the Rouse Raiders, last Friday.

“The call was a poor one, and [the point] should have at least been replayed,” senior libero Kennedi Lemmond said. “But if we would’ve played cleaner and more disciplined then we wouldn’t have had to rely on those close calls.”

Senior Captain Shelby Epley said their loss to Rouse is giving them the drive to practice harder and advance further into district play. Epley said that placing in district is important to the seniors because it is their last season with the Lady T-Wolves, and they are looking to leave a legacy for the teams to come. 

“Right now, with our record, we’re considered second [in district],” Epley said. “[The seniors] want to finish strong, and this season we want to leave a legacy. We’re all about changing the culture.”

Epley said she wants to establish a culture that values effort, hard work, a fun atmosphere and respect for the coach’s input. She said that culture will affect future teams, and she is working on instilling a high standard of what the volleyball team really is. One young player to be looking for is sophomore Abbi Lemmond, Epley said.

“[We’re] excited to see Abbi Lemmond grow into the player [we] know she can be,” Epley said. “She’s already one of our strongest and most consistent hitters, and we all think she’s going to go D1.”

Lemmond totals 240 kills on the season so far, and average three kills a game. She said she is hoping to bring even more to the team in the future.

“I hope to contribute by being a player on the court [the team] can always trust,” Lemmond said. “And try to be a leader for the team.”

Looking forward to district, senior Ryan Kuharski said that the team is excited for an eventual rematch against the Raiders later in the season.

“We’re going to change the way we approach the game and prepare more in practice,” Kuharski said. “This game we highly relied on defense, so we need to have a backup plan for that”.

Their rematch with Rouse will be at home on Oct. 16. In the meantime, the Lady T-Wolves will face the Connally Cougars this Friday at 6:30 p.m.
