MANSFIELD — John Tyler dropped three pool play matches in the first day of action at the Sunrise Rotary Club Tournament.

JT lost its first and last matches in straight sets to Fort Worth Southwest (25-20, 25-11) and Mansfield (25-5, 25-15). JT fell in three sets in the middle match to Fort Worth Dunbar (14-25, 27-25, 25-20).

“We’re not there yet,” JT coach Stephanie March-Smith said. “We need some (better) passing and defense.”

The Lady Lions (1-3) continue pool play Thursday against three local schools in the Mansfield ISD tournament: Fort Worth Timbercreek, Mansfield Timberview and Mansfield Lake Ridge.

The tournament features 24 schools.
