The big word for the day Monday for Lady Cats Volleyball Coach Justin Maness was “exciting”. That was his assessment of the Lady Cats 3-1 victory over Texas High Friday night at Mount Pleasant that earned the Lady Cats the district championship and the district’s number one playoff seed. The Lady Cats lost the first set before winning three sets in a row to get the victory.
Coach Maness said the Lady Cats came out a little show and a bit out of sync in set one. He said he could see the Lady Cats gaining momentum and getting into sync in set two. Coach Maness said from that point on the Lady Cats kept getting better and better.
He praised senior Kaylee Jefferson for her amazing game. Coach Maness said she was going up against one of the best blockers in the district. He also discussed the contribution of Abbi Baier. Coach Maness said she only had five kills but he said every one came at just the right time. The stats sheet showed contributions from almost all of the Lady Cats.
Next up for the Lady Cats will be Wylie East, fourth place finishers in rugged district 15-5A. Coach Maness said they were a good defensive team with a good setter and a good outside hitter. He said they weren’t all that tall but he said they play well. Coach Maness said the Lady Cats would have to show up to play Tuesday night. The bi-district game is at Royse City Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
