It was a good night for GMS Volleyball on Monday, September 18, 2017. The 7th & 8th Grade Vollyball Teams from Brookshire Royal traveled to Giddings to compete against the GMS Lady Buffs. The games began at 4:45 in the GMS Gym. Action began with the 7th grade B Team. Our girls showed much improvement and played hard. They defeated the 7B team from Brookshire Royal in 2 straight sets. That was to set the tone for the rest of the evening. Our 7A team also defeated Brookshire Royal in straight sets. Our girls never gave up the lead. They played as a team, winning with a combination of strategic rally play and targeted serves. Next came the game between the 8B Teams. Again, Our girls won the first set easily. The second set was more challenging with the lead changing hands throughout the set. Each team had the opportunity to put the game away but the other side would rally and play would continue. GMS was finally able to put the game away with a 30 - 28 win in the second set. The 8A game was also very exciting. GMS won the first set pretty handily. However, Brookshire Royal came out ready to play the second set. They dominated to play early in the second set by leading 13-2. This caused the Lady Buffs to rally and in an amazing come from behind win over took the Lady Falcons and won the match 25-22. Great Job coaches and athletes.
