The season is underway for your Lady Dragon Volleyball team. Its opening act was, well, a bit bumpy with a dramatic 23-25 loss in the opening set to JJ Pearce. But then, the Lady Dragons looked the part of a top 10 ranked team in the state as they open the season at #6 in the Texas Volleyball Coaches Association Poll. They cruised to a 25-20, 25-15 and 25-17 lid lifter of a match for the 3-1 win.
The new Lady Dragons are now 1-0 on the season and headed back to Pearland (sorry, ladies no trip to the islands this year) for a season opening tournament – the 20th annual Adidas JTC tournament. This field is widely considered to be the best in the state of Texas for the opening weekend and will include fellow 5-6A mate and 2 time state champion Lewisville Hebron as well as the state runner up from last year.
Full bracket information to come later. The tournament begins Thursday, Aug. 10 and will continue through the weekend.
