NEW PORT RICHEY -- Mitchell High improved its record to 3-0 with a Class 6A-District 7 win over Alonso on Thursday in four games, 25-20, 22-25, 25-17 and 25-16. The loss dropped Alonso to 1-1.
In each game the Mustangs either took an early lead only to let Alonso back in the game or, in the case of the lone game loss to Alonso, came back and had a chance to win but didn't get the job done. The fact the Mustangs didn't put the wins away early when it had the chance frustrated coach Kevin Paulk.
"We stand around to watch the ohs and ahs," Paulk said. "This team is capable of making the ohs and ahs but we need to focus and not teams back in the game."
