SNYDER — The Lady Steers (30-13) rallied Friday at the Coliseum after falling in the first two sets to top Springtown (32-8) 22-25, 19-25, 25-17, 25-16, 15-13, claiming the regional semifinal championship in the process.

The win also set up a chance at redemption against District 4-3A rival Wylie (32-9), which is ranked No. 4 in the state by the Texas Girls Coaches Association. A win would crown Big Spring the regional champions and set up a state title run.

Wylie defeated Big Spring in both outings during district play, but the Lady Steers have been peaking. They avenged a pair of losses to Monahans in the area round to reach the regional tournament.

Big Spring was led by Morgan Seaton, who contributed 23 assists, 15 kills and 13 digs. Julianna Rodriguez recorded 23 digs and Erin Pollard added 16 kills in the comeback win.

Results from Saturday's regional championship game will be printed in Monday's edition of the Herald.
