After Sylvan Hills head volleyball coach Harold Treadway left Tuesday night’s match against Little Rock Christian, he had a unique take.
“I would have paid to watch that one,” Treadway said calling it “the most exciting match” he has ever been involved in.
Even though they lost 3-1, Treadway said his players fought back.
“I told them they had nothing to be ashamed of,” Treadway said.
The match started in typical fashion, as the Lady Bears got off to a slow start and fell in the first two games 25-13, and 25-13.
The Lady Warriors, though they are reloading from a conference championship team, dominated in the first two games.
However, Treadway saw some life in his players.
“All I’ve ever asked of our team was to make the other team make adjustments,” Treadway said.
The light came on in game three, and the Lady Bears fought to win 29-27.
“They came out and played with heart,” Treadway said. “They left everything out there in that third game.”
In game four, the Lady Bears used the third game’s momentum and built a 20-14 lead. But LRC responded and surged back to end the match at 27-25.
Treadway said he was proud of the way his team played defense including Karley Walton, and Jessica Scott getting tips and blocks in the latter part of the game. Walton had six blocks while Scott added four.
This is the tough week of the schedule with a short road trip to Pulaski Academy on Thursday.
