The lady tiger volleyball players traveled to the city of Titusville to take on the Astronaut War Eagles. They arrived at the set time around 5:00 pm, and began warming up.

They performed their set stretching procedures to warm up for their match. They did this by passing with a partner for about twenty minutes or longer. The coach, Coach Daniella, began a hitting drill. By this time, it was time to begin the match.

They started by calling captains, to where captain, Gwen Simpson #3, won the toss and won the Tigers serve. The Tigers dominated the War eagles in the first set with a score of 25-20. They accomplished this by persevering and dedicating their energy towards the game and each other.

In the second set, they lost by a few points which could have been easily taken back. Although, this did not phase them. They continued on playing to their best ability and advancing point by point. With an exceptional error here and there, the Tigers remained focused throughout the set.

Once again, the War Eagles took a set. The set score was now 1-2. The next set, Cocoa played every play with passion. A few net errors were called and offense began weak, but they improved as the set went on. Defense barely let a ball drop and gave their best efforts.

Myannah Robinson #8, dove for every ball possible. Gwen Simpson gave her best efforts defending the ball as a setter. The Tigers won set three with a sore of 25-23. The fifth set remained very close. Each point increased slowly with a generally long rally. Each rally lasted about 15 to 30 seconds.

The Tigers lost by two points, but they played hard. This loss ended their season. They had a long but hardworking season.
