Volleyball season nears; schedules

ORANGE — While the football players are sweating bullets out on the practice fields, high school volleyball players have been doing the same in their respective gymnasiums.

Volleyball teams have already got a couple scrimmages behind them and will start the season for real this coming week, nearly two weeks before school starts.

Both the District 20-4A and 21-3A volleyball races should be tight once again and all of the Orange County teams should be right in the hunt, battling for playoff berths.

Over at Little Cypress-Mauriceville, long-time coach Vicki Castino will try to get the Lady Bears back into the postseason after a rare abesence last season. She will welcome back a slew of experience that should help pave the way.

The Lady Bears have a few nice hitters back in the forms of Sarah Woods, Malaysia Winbush and Jade Piper.

The Lady Bears will open the season Tuesday on the road at Hamshire-Fannett. They will compete in the Pearland, Danta Fe and YMBL tournaments and will open 20-4A play Sept. 10 at Beaumont Central.

Coach Megan Adams led the Orangefield Lady Bobcats to a superb 28-6 mark, a 21-3A title and a trip to the 3A Region III quarterfinals last year, led by a very talented groupof seniors. The Lady Bobcats will be young this year, but the cupboard is far from bare including Taylor Benoit, who was 21-3A’s Newcomer of the Year and a member of the All-Orange Leader Team.

Orangefield opens the season Tuesday against a talented Tarkington squad. They will also compete in the Vidor and YMBL tournaments. The Lady Bobcats open 21-3A action Sept. 10 at home against Silsbee.

Bridge City and long-time head coach Becca Mathews barely missed the playoffs last year for the first time in awhile and the Lady Cardinals, who were very young last year, have a ton of talent back, led by the likes of Alexus Henry as they could be a early 21-3A favorite.

The Lady Cardinals will host Port Neches-Groves and Dayton in a tri-match Tuesday. Bridge City will also participate in the Huffman, Dickinson and Santa Fe tournament. They will open 21-3A action Sept. 10 at Buna.

The West Orange-Stark Lady Mustangs, led by long-time coach Gwen Kelly-Hall will crank up their campaign Tuesday at Beaumont Ozen. WO-S will also compete in the Vidor, Buna and YMBL tournaments and will start 21-3A action Sept. 10 at home against Hamshire-Fannett.
