The Lady Tiger Sharks of Port St. Joe High School began the second half of the volleyball season last week by traveling to Blountstown. The team’s defensive struggles continued as they lost the match in three games. The Lady Tigers won the first two sets by scores of 13-25 and 15-25. Defensive efforts were better in the third set, said Port St. Joe coach Wayne Taylor, but they were not able to overcome Blountstown’s offense and lost 21-25.
“We are off the rest of the week and will work extensively on defense,” Taylor said. “The players are working well together as a team but just can’t quite put it together defensively. With only three weeks left in the regular season, now is the time to step up and make the big plays. The talent is there on the team, we just have to put it all together.”
The team would also like to remind the public about its Dig Pink event supporting breast cancer awareness and research. The match will be Thursday, Oct. 18 at home against Wewahitchka. It is also senior night and the last regular season match. All gate proceeds from the match will go to the Side Out Foundation for breast cancer research.
