Volleyball Looks Strong After Midway Mark Of Season

We have passed the halfway mark of our season, and we are in a good place going into the end of our schedule. Many of our players have stepped up, and our teams are improving.

We traveled to Texas Christian on September 15th and lost in four sets. It was a humbling experience for our Varsity squad and I think that loss fueled our motivation to win the next four games.

Both JV and Varsity were on the road at our friendly rival Central Christian on September 17th. The JV lost in 3 sets and the Varsity won in 3 sets. We hosted Harmony Advancement on September 18th. Our JV lost in two sets and our Varsity won in four sets.

Humble Christian hosted both teams on September 22nd and our JV lost in three sets and our Varsity won in four sets.

On September 24th we hosted The Oaks for our first ever district game. Our Varsity won in three sets.

Our wining streak ended on Friday at Awty. Our Varsity lost in four sets, while our JV came from behind and won a very exciting game in three sets. Both JV and Varsity teams will be traveling this week to Harmony Beaumont on Monday September 29th at 5:30pm and to our friendly rival Central Christian on October 1st at 5:00pm.

Our girls appreciate all of the support you continue to provide, and we look forward to the rest of the season!

Go Wildcats!
