Lady Tiger Senior Night crucial to volleyball playoff rankings
A win over second ranked Edmond Memorial in this past weekend’s Owasso Volleyball Tournament upped the ante on Broken Arrow’s Senior Night match against Owasso on Thursday at Tiger Field House.
“I was so proud of the girls,” Bullen said of the four-set win over one of the best teams in the state. “Our kids stood up and won a big one when we needed to. That was definitely a good one to get.”
Ranked ninth in the latest OSSAA Volleyball Rankings, the Lady Tigers are one spot away from hosting a regional. Just ahead of BA, at Number 7 in the rankings, is Jenks, a team the Lady Tigers beat in the third match of the season.
Awaiting the Lady Tigers, in the final home match of the season, is No. 7 ranked Owasso. Broken Arrow is looking to avenge Saturday’s five-set loss to the Lady Rams in the semifinals of the Owasso Tournament. A win on Senior Night could push BA up a spot in the final ranking, enough to secure home court for the Oct. 9 regional tournament.
At 17-11, Bullen has seen somewhat Jekyll and Hyde performances from the 2018 version of the Lady Tiger volleyball team.
“We cannot find consistent rhythm,” he said. “We’ve lost at least five matches that could have gone the other way.
“It’s almost like we decide to play really good, but then we completely lay an egg against Stillwater, and then we rise up and beat (Edmond) Memorial.”
Terri Moos was honored at Pink Out Night.
Last week, the Lady Tigers honored Broken Arrow High School employee Terri Moos and her family on Pink Out Night. The team raised more than $1,000 to help assist Terri as she battles breast cancer.
