"This weekend we went 2-2 and played some good competition. We played a hard fought match against Mountain View College and lost in five sets. We were able to beat Wharton County again which fired up my girls on going forward to the next day. We went up against Odessa College who is #18 in the nation, we put up the best defense we could against them and then went on and beat Cedar Valley in 4 sets. This weekend all of my team stepped up and showed everyone what Cougar Volleyball has to bring to the table!"
