Coach Maness said the Raiders have a good outside hitter and a really good setter. He said the Lady Cats must be extremely aggressive and put the ball away.
Coach Maness said Wylie East is not very big but he added they play well for their size. He said the Lady Cats would have to show up and play. Coach Maness is hoping a big crowd will follow the Lady Cats to Royse City. He said the fans have been a huge help for the Lady Cats in big matches this season.
