Moore wins four-set battle with NHS



That comeback was emblematic of the team NHS believes it can be.

“We have so much talent on this team it’s unbelievable,” said Newell, who pointed to a 25-8 set victory against a good Enid team earlier in the season as the kind of volleyball the Tigers are capable of playing. “When we play the way we know how to play, it’s crazy how good we are. We just need to pull it all together.”

Lewis-Coffey saw both the good and the bad from her team Tuesday.

“When we’re really doing well, we’re fighting to score on every single ball that comes to us,” she said. “When we’re not doing so well, we’re just kind of fighting to survive and it just gets kind of sloppy and disjointed.”

Sometimes the good and the bad would converge in the same points, simply because the Lions kept them going.

“They’re a good team and it was an evenly matched match,” Lewis-Coffey said. “On our side, we just had too many unforced errors.”

NHS will be busy trying to get back in the win column. Friday and Saturday, the Tigers are at the Jenks tournament. Tuesday and Thursday of next week, they’re at Putnam City North and Midwest City.

As Newell said, there’s a lot of season left to “put it all together.”
