The Buckhorn volleyball team played three matches last week, but failed to come away with a win. In their first match, the Lady Wildcats took on the Lady Cavaliers of Jenkins. They finished their week with a double-header against the Red Bird Lady Cardinals.
The Lady Wildcats opened the first game with Jenkins strong, keeping pace to the midway point. However, a late surge by the Lady Cavaliers gave them the 25-13 win. It would be all Jenkins in the second game as they routed Buckhorn 25-6 to take the match.
Later in the week, the Lady Wildcats took on Red Bird. In the first match, Buckhorn found it difficult to keep pace with the Lady Cardinals and dropped the match 25-12 and 25-14.
Buckhorn picked up the pace in the first game of the second match, pushing Red Bird to the limit all the way to the end (25-22). However, things would not go as well in the second game, as the Lady Cardinals capped off the night with the 25-15 win for the match.
