Gatesville High lost a hard-fought 3-1 (25-22, 19-25, 19-25, 22-25) decision to state-ranked Lorena here Tuesday night. The Hornets won the opening set and held slim leads in the third and fourth games. "Can't fought the play and effort of our kids," said Gatesville coach Rickey Phillips. "They played their tails off all night. We just made too many self-inflicted mistakes down the stretch in the final three sets...things you can't do against good teams." With the loss, GHS falls to 20-11 overall and 4-2 in District 17-4A, trailing Lorena (5-0) and Robinson (4-1) in the 7-team standings. Updated 17-4A standings can be viewed on the below link. The Hornets host Class 6A Killeen Ellison here Friday (Varsity at 5:00 PM), then return to league play next Tuesday at China Spring. In sub-varsity action Tuesday, the Hornet JV and 9th teams both lost 2-0.
