CHINA SPRING — Belton volleyball coach Stacy Meyers was not too worried about dropping Game 2 to China Spring on Tuesday. She knew her squad still had the momentum.
Meyers’ hunch was correct as Belton pulled away for a 25-17, 23-25, 25-20, 25-22 victory.
Defense led the way for the Lady Tigers, paced by 56 digs from Kinsey Williams. It’s the second consecutive match Williams had 56 digs, including a five-game loss to Lorena on Aug. 27.
Meyers thought a turning point was when her team trailed 10-1 in Game 2.
“We did really well the rest of that game. We just had too big of a hole to come back to win that game,” Meyers said. “They were well-disciplined, made good decisions and played good defense.”
Brianne Brown led Belton (10-6) with 17 kills and had 24 digs. Mikayla Moore added eight kills, 17 digs and 10 assists. Breyanna York had 10 kills and 15 assists.
Meyers felt Williams’ defense was better than ever.
“She’s reading the hitter better than she used to,” Meyers said. “The digs also come from anticipation and diving to make plays.”
Belton plays in the Buda Hays Rebel Bash on Thursday, taking on Fort Bend Elkins at noon and Austin Ann Richards at 1 p.m.
