Now the games count for real and the Sulphur Springs Lady Cats are up to the challenge.
Sulphur Springs opens the non-district part of their volleyball schedule today at Pattonville. They have a dual contest against Prairiland and North Lamar. Play starts at 4:30 p.m. with ninth grade, junior varsity and varsity in action.
The Lady Cats have done well opening the schedule with scrimmages against come tough schools.
Sulphur Springs is led this year by new head coach Michelle Namanny. Namanny, an assistant coach last year on the volleyball staff, was elevated to head coach this year.
“I was pleased with how our girls fought on the court this weekend in scrimmages,” Namanny said. “We had some tough competition with Commerce on Friday and against Mabank and Greenville on Saturday. Offensively, I thought we played the ball well especially when we passed well. We still have some things to get straightened out, but I think once we do we will be solid on the court.”
“Destiny Wade, Kasey Moore and Jessye Castro all had some great attack,” Namanny said. “Sarah Womack and McKenzie Sorley put up some very strong blocks.”
During the scrimmages no score was kept, but the coach was pleased with the outcome.
The Lady Cats now are eager to begin the season.
“Our girls are very excited to get our season off to a great start tonight,” Namanny said. “I feel the teams are playing well and have grown and progressed a lot in the last week of practices and scrimmages.”
Namanny said she would like to see the varsity come out strong and confident.
The coach added, “I believe in what we can do together. I know we will accomplish our goals.”
The teams will be involved in tournament action this weekend. The JV, 9th play in Eustace and the varsity in Van.
