The Lady Cats volleyball team will have their hands full the next two weekends as they participate in not one but two tournaments over the course of this weekend and next.
Today Coach Bailey Dorner, head Lady Cats volleyball coach and her squad travelled out to the DFW metroplex to take part in the Garland tournament.
The Lady Cats were set for a long day of stiff competition, as they were set to play their first game at 9 A.M. versus (Richardson) JJ Pearce.
Sulphur Springs got off to a slow start in the Garland tournament, dropping both sets en route to a sweep at the hands of the Lady Mustangs.
The Lady Cats fared better in their next two contests against Forney and South Garland.
In the second match of the Garland Tournament for Coach Dorner’s squad, Sulphur Springs took on Forney at noon and turned the tables on the Jackrabbits as the Lady Cats got a sweep of their own; 25-16 in set one and a close set two victory at 25-22, to get their first win of the tournament.
Sulphur Springs got their second sweep of the day when they faced South Garland, taking two straight sets 25-7 and 25-14 to get their second and final win of day one of the Garland Tournament.
Coach Dorner said her squad got off to a slow start, but turned things around and played well against Forney and South Garland.
With the two victories in day one of the Garland Tournament, the Lady Cats can now shift their focus to day two of the tournament, which will be held at Sachse High School.
That game was originally set to begin at 8 A.M. Saturday, Aug. 14, but a cancellation from one of the teams forced Sulphur Springs to now play in the 10:30 AM slot.
Coach Dorner said any other games the Lady Cats will participate in on Saturday, Aug. 14 will depend on whether her squad wins or loses their first game come Saturday.
