Seguin falls to Dripping Springs in regional quarterfinals
(New Braunfels) - Seguin's 2018 volleyball season ended Tuesday night with a 3-0 loss to Dripping Springs in the 5A Region IV quarterfinals at New Braunfels High School.

The Matadors dropped a tightly contested first set 25-23, then struggled through a 25-10 loss in the second.  

The Tigers had Seguin on the rops in the third set, 23-19, but the Mats courageously rallied back with a 5-0 run to take a 24-23 lead. Dripping Springs recovered to score the final two points and close out the sweep with a 26-24 win.

Seguin head coach Kristi Stanley says her players left everything on the court against the TGCA's 10th ranked team in the state.

"Dripping Springs is a great team this year, great program overall, and we battled pretty well overall," Stanley said. "Unfortunately, I think set two took a little out of us emotionally and kind of set us back. Really impressed with how much we competed in set three after the result of game two, so we played well, we made adjustments where we needed to, they just came at us a little bit stronger, and it didn't go our way."

Emmy Riordan collected seven kills and 12 digs. Kaitlyn Baker added five kills.

Savanna Luensmann set for 12 assists. Presley Engelke recorded 11 digs and sent three aces over the net. Ariann Canales came up with 10 digs, and Carsyn Dietz totaled two solo blocks.

Tuesday marked the final varsity volleyball games in the high school careers of Seguin seniors Dietz, Riordan, Canales, Emily Rodriguez, Engelke, and Gracie Scheel.

The Matadors have advanced to the Region IV quarterfinals in three consecutive seasons, and preceded the 2018 trip with a 16-0 run to the District 26-5A championship.

Though the team's goal was to qualify for the regional tournament and beyond, Stanley says her squad can reflect on a season to be proud of.

"We always say we want to be district champions, we say all those things and we have those goals, but this group did a phenomenal job of taking that and owning it, and making it happen," the coach said. "They absolutley worked their tails off every day in practice, and I know I've said this before - I'm not the easiest person to work for - but they come in and they know that the expectations are high, and where we want to go, and that we'll get there with that hard work, and our results showed it. We did a phenomenal job this season."

Seguin's final season record is 31-10.
