SHS falls at home to Coweta

Class 4A No. 10 Sequoyah lost a home volleyball match to Coweta on Monday night, losing 3-0 (25-20, 25-15, 25-18).

“On our serving game, we didn’t bring our A game,” Sequoyah coach Jay Herrin said. “It wasn’t B or C either. It was just a very disappointing performance.”

Sequoyah (19-11) will close out the regular season tonight at Okay, and the Lady Indians will enter postseason play on Thursday in a 4A regional against Kellyville at Rogers High School in Tulsa.
