The Port Isabel Lady Tarpons volleyball team is still trying to win their first district match of the 2016 season. Tuesday night, at home, they dropped a hard-fought match to the Lady Red Ants of Progreso that went to five sets.
Progreso won, 3-2, by the scores of 25-16, 18-25, 10-25, 25-18, 15-13.
In the second set, Port Isabel took a 16-15 lead and closed out with five straight points to win, 25-18. The Lady Tarpons led all the way in the third and scored 10 of 11 points for a 23-8 lead. Olivia Soliz scored the last four points for P.I., including the game winner on a nice reverse, two-handed tip, and P.I. led 2-1 in sets.
