Lake Worth won the first game 25-23, the second game 25-16, Pahokee won the third game 25-21 and Lake Worth won the finale 25-15.

“We let them get an early lead and then we would play from behind in each of the games,” he noted.

Erhardt said the one victory for Pahokee came when the girls played well at the beginning, built a lead and then held off Lake Worth.

“If we can simply clean up our mental errors we should have a pretty successful season. Even though our team is small in numbers we have the talent to play with anyone,” he added.

Erhardt said he looks forward to seeing growth in the team as many of the girls meet their full potential.

“I hope the girls will continue to improve throughout the season and play at the level I know they’re capable of doing,” he added.

Lon’teria McFadden, a junior, is considered the Lady Blue Devils best and most athletic player. Erhardt said she led the team in kills in the opening match and has a potential to play at a very high level throughout the season.
