ALBANY â€” The Big Spring volleyball team's season is over.
The Lady Steers were in a long, hard-fought battle all night in their bi-district playoff game against Vernon, but the Lady Lions prevailed in five set 25-20, 19-25, 15-25, 30-28, 15-9.
This match had all the twists and turns one could handle. Vernon got the advantage early, especially in the first set. The Lady Lions held on to the lead the whole set, while service errors and Vernon's persistence caused problems for the Lady Steers.

Excuse the Big Spring volleyball team for feeling like its in uncharted territory â€” or at least territory the Lady Steers haven't been in for a while.
No play-in game to get into the playoffs. Check. Some much-needed rest before the playoffs. Check. No defending state champion waiting to pounce the Lady Steers in the bi-district round. Check.
All that has Big Spring feeling like it has a chance to go deep in the playoffs this season, as opposed to last year. It starts with Vernon at 6:30 p.m. today at Albany High School in Albany.

Young might have said she was nervous, but she didn't play like it.
