The Coahoma Bulldogettes begin volleyball season with a 3-2 record after competing in the Falcon Fest Tournament hosted by Veribest ISD this past weekend.
Coahoma earned solid wins against McCamey, Paint Rock, and the San Angelo Central Freshman Blue team on Friday and lost against Crane and Fort Davis on Saturday.
Overall, Bulldogette Head Coach Jamie Bonner said she is encouraged by her players performance in their first competitive setting.
“We have a lot of learning to do, but we are also much further along this year than we were this same time last year,” Bonner said. “The advantage we have this year is that every single player is a hustler. They get out and work hard every day.”
Bonner added the majority of the players participated in summer conditioning and the results are showing on the court.
“You could tell on day one of two-a-day workouts who participated in summer conditioning,” Bonner said. “They are faster to the ball and their reflexes are sharper. It’s definitely going to pay off for us this year. I think we have one of the most athletic volleyball teams Coahoma has seen in a while.”
Over the two-day tournament, MaKynlee Overton led on offense racking up 21 kills followed by Caitlyn Corley with 18 and Kirah Kimball with 16. Standout freshman Zoie Joslin made 45 assists during the tournament.
Next: The Bulldogettes travel to Lubbock on Tuesday to face off against the Estacado Lady Matadors in a non-district match. JV Red and White teams play at 5 p.m. while the varsity game begins at 6 p.m.
