Few teams in any sport are as good at the beginning as they wind up being in the end and that’s even more prevalent when it’s a young team. It’s a process over the span of a season.

In the 105-degree heat at the Hornets Nest, the Lady Hornets roared back from a 21-25 loss in the first game of the best-of-five and never trailed on the way to a 25-22 win in game two.

The crucial third game was tight throughout with Bryant within 21-22 after a kill by junior Mercedes Dillard. But the Lady War Eagles scored the last three points to forge another 25-21 win and wound up taking the match 3-1 with a 25-15 win in the close-out game.
