Gators Cruise Past Cougars, 3-2
†Hard Fought Victory at Jarrell Keeps Gateway in 2nd Place in District
(Sept. 25) -- Coming back from a two-set deficit, the Gators refused to go away and ultimately escaped their hostile surroundings with a 3-2 victory.† Down 7-12 in the final set, Kayla Miley's strong serves and a "nothing hits the floor" mentality resulted in a 15-12 win in that tie-breaking set.†
Gateway is now 3-1 in district and sitting in second place!† The team will play three home games in a row: Tuesday (9-29) versus Florence, Friday (10-2) versus Ingram Moore, and Tuesday (10-6) versus Comfort (PINK OUT GAME!!).† A good turnout is urged to support these girls who have been working so hard to secure a playoff spot. †
