Both the Junior High and High School volleyball had a successful, impressive week! The Varsity volleyball team had a dominant week, when they won back to back district games. The Junior High girls also have created an impressive winning streak of being undefeated, thus far.
The Varsity volleyball has had a rollercoaster of a season from big wins, to heartbreaking losses. Their inconsistency struck concern in their hopes of making the playoffs, but the girls took charge in working towards that goal. October 14, the Lady Pirates ruled over the Chester Lady Yellow Jackets with a sweeping 3-0 game. That momentum of such a big win lit up the want to win in the girls to carry them through another victory, on October 17, against the Leggett Pirates. The Spurger Lady Pirates are hoping to finish with the same results in their efforts of the upcoming games. October 24, the Junior Varsity and Varsity will play in Colmesneil at 4:30. The last home game of the season, and the Junior Varsity's last game, will be against Burkeville on October 28. Seniors of the Lady Pirate Volleyball team will also be recognized before the games begin.
The Junior High Lady Pirates have yet to be defeated! After an intense win against San Augustine, on October 13, the girls continue to hold their perfect season title.
November 8, will be the community-wide tailgate to kick off the beginning of this year's basketball season. Following the tailgate, the Varsity basketball boys will be playing against Spurger alumni at 7 p.m. Any previous Spurger graduates who wish to participate need to contact the High School office at 409-429-3464.
