The Big Pine Warriors volleyball team lost a hard-fought, homecourt battle against the feisty Lee Vining Tigers Tuesday. The Tigers took three of four games but the winning margin in each was no greater than 5 points.
â€śWe were pretty good,â€ť said coach Angie Argyle, â€śbut we could have done better. Weâ€™re having trouble finishing matches. We beat Lee Vining in tournament play and should have been able to beat them in league play.â€ť
The Warriors are now 2-4 in league play and 4-6 overall.
