The Sanger Lady Indians spoiled the season opener for Van Alstyne on Tuesday night, sweeping the Lady Panthers 3-0 in a match played at Van Alstyne Middle School due to repairs being done on the gym floor at the high school.

Already short on experienced talent, Van Alstyne (0-1) suffered a major setback when Sadie Ingram sustained an ankle injury early in the opening set and did not return to action.

Van Alstyne will play in the Denton-Ryan tournament Aug. 12-13 and travel to Pilot Point on Aug. 16.
