Lady Cats Volleyball Coach Justin Maness says one of his goals this year is to play a tougher schedule. He feels that will pay off later this season. The Lady Cats won three and lost three in a Garland tournament Friday and Saturday. The Lady Cats, now 4-4 this season, will play next at McKinney North Tuesday evening.
Coach Maness says he saw a lot of positives. The Lady Cats defeated South Garland and Carrollton Newman Smith and lost to Mesquite Horn. That qualified the Lady Cats for the top championship bracket. They opened play there with a big win over Hallsville. Coach Maness says he is not sure the Lady Cats had ever defeated Hallsville before.
He says on Saturday the Lady Cats lost to a very good Sachse team and also to Wylie. Coach Maness says his team did not play as well Saturday as he wanted them to. Still he says the Lady Cats finished eighth among 28 teams in one of the toughest tournaments in the Metroplex. Coach Maness says he was very pleased with the Lady Cats’ net play and their offense. He singles out Kaylee Jefferson and Autumn Tanton for their play. He says setter Lexie Whisenhunt is getting better.
