Alana Garcia, right, receives a return hit from SGA with Payton Martinez backing her up.

The Rockport-Fulton High School (RFHS) Lady Pirate volleyball team defeated the Santa Gertrudis Academy Lady Lions 3-1 Tuesday, Sept. 1 at home.

After dropping set one 25-21, RFHS battled back in the last three sets to take the game away, 26-24, 25-21, and 25-23.

RFHS’ overall record moves to 2-4.

Mikayla Molina led RFHS offensively with 31 assists.

Faith Ngo led RFHS in kills with 15. Lauren Moore followed Ngo with 13 kills. Moore also had five service aces.

Payton Martinez led RFHS defensively with 15 digs. Ngo followed Martinez with five digs.

Lilith Solis, Moore, Kaylie Skinner, and Alana Garcia finished the game with one block each.

RFHS will begin its district season Tuesday, Sept. 8 at Ingleside. It was previously reported in the last edition of the Pilot that RFHS’ district season began Friday, Sept. 4 against Tuloso-Midway (TM). That report was inaccurate; TM is not in RFHS’ district.

Game time for RFHS at Ingleside is 6 p.m.
