Milestone Night for Heights

KSCB News - September 1, 2010 12:00 am

The Southwestern Heights Mustangs snapped Liberal’s 43 match home court winning streak and earned their coach win number 200 in one swoop Tuesday night in front of a raucous crowd in the “Big House.” Liberal drops their opener (25-27, 25-22, 22-25, 25-22, 4-15). Tucker says her team won the match between their ears. “I don’t know that physically there was anything different,” Tucker said. “I just think that the girls finally thought we can actually beat Liberal. I don’t know if they thought that before. Once they got that in their mind and we got a little bit of a lead, I told them don’t let them come back, keep pushing. We were aggressive. We kept Liberal out of their offense because we kept attacking at them.”

Tucker won her 200th career match and is 189-56 in her 7th season at SWH. She says she kept the milestone a secret and only told her husband and a few others. “I wanted it to happen tonight so badly,” Tucker said. “I didn’t want it to happen against a team that doesn’t push us like Liberal did. I didn’t know if we would get it tonight or not.”

Liberal goes to Garden City for a quad Thursday. Heights, who was 44-3 and finished third in 3A last year and was 36-5 in 2008, goes to Satanta Tuesday.
