Past two weeks busy for Vballers!

We've had a busy couple of weeks with volleyball. Our JV and Varsity squads have been working hard at practice and playing some well fought matches.

Both teams traveled to Briarwood on September 4th and won in three sets. We turned around the next day and hosted Awty on Friday September 5th. Our JV played three very tough sets and lost. Our Varsity started out strong, but just couldn't get it done. We fell in three sets. Both squads traveled to Family Christian on Friday September 12th and lost in the JV and Varsity games.

We are going through some challenges right now, but I feel confident we will get some quality court time this week and get back into a good flow.We have another busy week ahead with some familiar opponents and I know we will turn it around.

JV and Varsity will travel to Texas Christian on Monday September 15th with games at 5:00pm and 6:00pm. On Wednesday September 17th we will travel to our friendly rival Central Christian with games at 5:00pm and 6:00pm. We will wrap our week up at home on Thursday September 18th with games versus Harmony Advancement at 5:00pm and 6:00pm. We appreciate all the support our fans give us and we encourage you to continue cheering us on at each game. Go Wildcats!
