Multiple Teams · Powerful Pink Out


The Lady Mavs played with purpose in their pink out game against Katy International Leadership Academy to come out with a well-needed win! The Mavs started and finished strong winning 2-0!

The Lady Mavs played their best game of the season with consistent numbers all around the board. Britney Fuentes and Vivian Morua led the boards in attacks and protected the front row. The JV captains, Wendy Huerta and Rachell Soler, also led the team with their relentlessness, hustle, and communication on and off the court.

Multiple Teams · Battle With Brays!


On Friday the 13th, the Lady Mavs fell to Brays Oaks.

Trailing the first two sets, Mavs began the third set with excellent communication and a tighter focus on ball control. we had a tighter focus on ball control while staying calm in an exciting game. We are confident that this 3rd game showed how we really play and how serious we are about getting better.

Transitioning into the 4th game, confident and pumped, the Mavs lost a tough fight. This loss is not only a loss but a growth on our future volleyball team.

Briza decided to pass Bubba on to senior and team captain Liavonni Eaglin for her leadership in Friday’s game. Lia did a wonderful job maintaining positivity in a tough game and showed the team exactly why she was voted team captain.

We look forward to coming together as a team and truly improve as well-rounded student-athletes.  Although the team did not win they work hard on and off the court this week. Balancing school and homework while practicing late, the Lady Mavs did not show weakness!

We are getting better every day and ready to compete again! Stay tuned for Friday’s game against Harmony School of Innovation.

Multiple Teams · Bubba Is Here!!!!


Catching up with Lady Mavs!

Written By: Liavonni Eaglin and Morgan Billingsley

 On Tuesday, October 3rd, we, The Lady Mavericks, had to learn an important lesson about fighting through adversity. With our starting setter out with an injury, we had to rally together to really support teammates who were playing in positions that they may not have been used to and learned very early that our communication had to be better than it has ever been. Even after losing the first two sets of the match, we never gave up. We forced ourselves to come to the middle after each play, celebrate points and used our missed points as opportunities to communicate to each other about what could have gone better. After a while, we began to play as a team and WE DID IT! In a tough match, we pulled out the win and were looking forward to Friday’s match!

 

Friday, October 6th

This Friday our Mavs spent their day off on the court, adding another win under their belts! Our Varsity girls played at Home against ‘Harmony School Of Advancement.

The game started off rough, lady Mavs lost their first set 19-25. They won the second set with a tough fight, 27-25. The third set was a quick win for the Mavs with, 25-16. Going into the fourth set it was 2 wins and 1 loss, they lost, but not without a fight, 20-25. The Mavs went into their 5th and final set, they took a well-deserved win with 15-6, winning the game.

After the game, the Mavs welcomed a new member to the family! We want to welcome Bubba! Today, Coach Conway introduced Bubba as the “trophy” for the player who shows the most leadership, character or sportsmanship in the game and she decided that Bubba should go home with Briza Armenta. Briza, has stepped up and into a major role this week as she had to abruptly fill our setter position. Although Briza has had little to no training as a setter, she was able to lead the team to a victory with her adaption and a big heart. Way to go, Briza!

Our next home game is Friday, October 9th . Come to support Lady Mavs as they rekindle a rematch with Brays Oaks.  Be there Friday in your Pink to support Lady Mavs on Pink Out night, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

 

Briza and Bubba

Multiple Teams · Resilience and Brilliance


The Lady Mavs had two matches this week on Monday, October 2nd and Wednesday, October 4th.

On Monday, the girls played their hearts out but were outplayed by Yes Prep West. A star player in the first match was Leslie Molina. Her serves kept the girls in the game and passing the ball around. The Lady Mavs held their heads up, as they played West, an undefeated team. While they struggled to communicate effectively, they were still able to work hard and get a few points on the board.

Torah Williams and Maria Juarez were two strong competitors that were able to help keep the team on the board.

On Wednesday, the Lady Mavs fought back and finish the week on a strong note. They started the match being down by a few points but knew they could not go down without a fight. Leslie Molina brought the game back by her powerful serves and her teammates could protect their court and keep the ball on the ground on the return.

Kate Medina also served effectively and was able to protect the net by passing and setting. Evelyn Hernandez also had a few strong passes and helped Kate protect the net as well.

The Lady Mavs are now 3-3 and hope to work their way up on the leaderboards next week.

Multiple Teams · JV Suffers Another Blow


The JV Lady Mavs traveled away Friday, October 6, 2017,  to take on The Lady Tigers of Harmony School of School of Science. The Lady Mavs fell short in a tough battle to 3 sets: 25-27, 25-19, 14-16.

The Mavs started strong with the help of, setter, Rachell Soler who served 8 consecutive times. A defensive specialist, Leslie Molina, moved up from the middle school team and has made an impact by showing hustle on the court. The Lady Mavs display a great amount of communication, teamwork, and heart in this game. The Lady Mavs will continue to demonstrate SW pride by winning with class and losing with integrity.

The Lady Mavs’ next game will be at Raul Yzaguirre School starting at 5:30 pm Friday, October 13th.
