Granger 25-10, 25-6 over Pateros

“There was a good reason why Granger was the top-ranked team in the tournament,” Pateros coach Gene Dowers said. At 9 a.m., they were a pretty rude awakening, particularly the way they could hit a floater serve.”

Stevenson 25-16, 25-16 over Pateros

“After making progress against Brewster, we had a bad match against Stevenson” coach Dowers said. “For whatever reason, the fire didn’t get lit and we let their lead-off server have a great day in just our match.”

No. 4 seed bracket

Pateros 25-22, 25-21 over Bridgeport “We got to play another neighbor that we hadn’t seen in a long time,” coach Dowers said. “The team called their own meeting after Stevenson and came back to the court a different team. Actually, more like the team we knew we were. We got balanced hitting from Anna, Sarah, Samantha, and Taylor and Sarah went 15 for 15 serving with 6 aces. I’m very proud of how the girls took the initiative to change their momentum, learned some lessons, and made a difference.”

Christian Faith 25-18, 25-16 over Pateros

“I didn’t know what to expect from the team that won the 1B state championship two years ago,” coach Dowers said. “They were still solid, with two very good players that came up through their championship teams. They were also a bit better at tournament play, as they had a little more endurance between the ears than we did.

“We go to this tournament to get tested. There weren’t very many 1B schools there and we only met one. We waded into the deep end of the pool and learned quite a bit about what we’re good at and what we need to work on. The new kids get to see the SunDome, so they’re a lot more prepared when we come back. We’re planning on growing enough as a team to come back for state.”

Pateros tournament stats: Sarah Poole 8 kills, 43/49 serves w/14 aces, 3 assists, 23 passes, 40 digs; Jissele Ornelas 2 kills, 5 passes; Samantha White 10 kills, 19/25 serves w/2 aces, 2 assists, 32 passes, 29 digs; Andrea Baird 2 kills, 8/13 serves w/1 ace, 15 assists, 6 digs; Ashlyn Gonzalez 2 kills, 25/29 serves w/4 aces, 26 passes, 48 digs; Jahaira Hernandez 3 assists, 2 passes, 6 digs; Taylor Harrild 7 kills, 19/25 serves w/8 aces, 7 passes, 4 digs; Anna Williams 8 kills, 22/26 serves w/3 aces, 14 assists, 5 passes, 12 digs; Jillian Piechalski 1 kill, 4 digs.
