Playing tough competition in the championship bracket of a Garland tournament Saturday (August 12), the Lady Cats’ volleyball team lost matches to Sachse and Wylie. The Lady Cats lost to Sachse, 25-12, 25-14 and to Wylie, 25-16, 25-16. The Lady Cats ended up winning three matches and losing three matches in the tournament.
One of the wins was a championship bracket victory over district foe Hallsville. The Lady Cats had been 0-15 against the Lady Bobcats during the past 11 years coming into this season. The Lady Cats are now 4-4 for the season. Lady Cats Coach Justin Maness said competition was strong in the championship bracket but he added he wants his team to experience this. He said playing teams like Sachse and Wylie would only make the Lady Cats better.
Coach Maness said the tournament play revealed several things the Lady Cats need to work on and he said they would begin to address those things Monday. On Saturday, Coach Maness said Kaylee Jefferson led the team in kills with 15 while Autumn Tanton added 10. Lexie Whisenhunt had 25 assists. Anden Hammack led the team with 15 digs. This week the Lady Cats play at McKinney North Tuesday (August 15) at 6:30 p.m.
They will compete in a Wills Point tournament this Friday and Saturday (August 18-19).
