This is the image for the news article titled EEHS:Lady Jackets Put Away Mercedes in Three Sets    Prior to the start of the third set against Mercedes, Edcouch-Elsa Head Volleyball Coach Dragan Markovic was hoping his team would not have a repeat of last Tuesday night’s District 32-5A match-up against Donna High.

“I told the girls to remember how it felt having a two-set lead over Donna High and then letting them back in the match by forcing a fifth and final set,” said Markovic. “The girls relaxed too much in that match and we talked about doing what had to be done in order to close it out in the third set. I reminded them that they needed to use the Donna match as motivation and do what needs to be done. ”

The Lady Jackets took his speech to heart and played their best volleyball of the night in the third which led them to a convincing 25-9 win and them sealing the deal.

“The girls were fired up going into that third set and played it perfectly,” said Markovic. “They were able to get to job done and I am proud of their effort.”

“This was a huge win against a very tough Mercedes team who came out and gave it their all. But to be quite honest with you, each and every opponent we play in District 32-5A is tough and I tell the girls all the time that they need to come out and play mistake free volleyball in order for us to make it to the playoffs.”
