Multiple Teams · MS Lady Mavs Fall To KIPP Academy


The Lady Mavs were down for the count in their second match of the season against Kipp Academy. The score for the games were 25-19, 25-16.

The Lady Mavs saw a tough defeat on Thursday when they fell just a little bit short. While their determination was there, some of their communication was not. Kipp Academy outplayed them by dropping balls in the gaps and the Mavs not able to recover their holes. They fought the good fight, with some strong players such as Kate Medina, Maria Juarez, and Leslie Molina.

Kate Medina served a strong serve, scoring 4 consecutive points in the second game. She stood tall and focused on the serve, in order to drop the ball right in the gap for Kipp Academy. Leslie Molina, even after sitting out for 3 rotations after an injury, came back and served a tough to beat overhand serve. Maria Juarez slid in and out of the holes on the court in order to save the ball from the ground.

While the girls had strong players, they just came a little short. On Monday, they face against Yes Prep Brays Oaks and hope to come back from their Thursday loss stronger than ever!

Multiple Teams · Lady Mavs Fall In Their District Home Opener


The JV Lady Mavs played their home opening game against the Lady Panthers of Raul Yzaguirre September 19, 2017. Kenia Solis lead the Mavs with her powerful serves to keep the Mavs in the game. Setter, Rachell Soler, leads the team with her hustle and communication on the court. Libero, Katherine Andrade, protected the back row and lead the Mavs in digs. The Lady Mavs started off strong in both sets battling for the lead with the Panthers, but could not pull through for the win.

 

The Lady Mavs demonstrated great sportsmanship and will continue to work towards their daily and overall season goals. The JV Lady Mavs will take the court again in the International Leadership tournament starting September 28th, 2017

Multiple Teams · MS Lady Mavs Win Home Opener


 

On Thursday, October 14th, the Lady Mavs showed out in their first match of the season against Kipp Spirit. The nerves were strong, but their spirit was stronger as they came out on top two games in a row to pull out a win. Starting on the court was Torah Williams, Leslie Molina, Maria Juarez, Briana Galvan, Kate Medina, and Ginger Strawder.

While our serving was slow to start, the girls showed their strong will to win by working as a team to call their balls and out-pass the other team. The Lady Mavs started off a few points short in the first match, but came back when they caught their stride passing back over the net. Ginger Strawderm Maria Juarez, and Briana Galvin were stand-outs in the match. Ginger was last in the serving rotation, but held the team up with six consecutive strong serves that either started a volley in which the Mavs were able to return or resulted in a strike of a serve.

Briana Galvin, a positive and uplifting leader on the Lady Mavs, held down the front line by calling the ball and profitable passes that were controlled, yet powerful. Maria Juarez, an athlete by all means, played with everything she had by sliding and diving for any pass that came her way; she was determined to not let a single ball hit the ground.

The Lady Mavs will face-off against Kipp Academy on Thursday, September 21st at 5:30 in Maverick Nation. We hope to see a strong crowd of support.

Mavericks News · Eight Great Fundraising Ideas for Booster Clubs – Presented by VNN


New jerseys, gear, entry fees, retreats – the wish list of opportunities to improve your teams is long, and often, the ways to finance them are short. While there’s no perfect one-size-fits-all fundraiser for every community, good inspiration is the first step.

Whether its your booster club, team, or program looking to raise funds and increase school spirit, here’s a few of our favorite ideas that we’ve seen across the network:

Jail-N-Bail – DeSoto High School (KS)

$10 files a warrant to arrest members of the community with phony allegations like “impersonating a golfer,” “failure to yield at the end of a sentence,” and “wearing pants way too high.” Once served with the warrant for their ‘arrest,’ the jailbirds are placed in a jail cell, a mug shot is taken, and they must call family/friends to raise bail.

Cheerleading Day – Pickens High School (SC)

CheerDay

Blue Flame cheerleaders dedicated their time to teach younger members of the community motion drills, jump technique, stunting fundamentals and sideline spirit in a day camp for a donation to the program. The campers, led by the PHS cheerleaders, performed a showcase at the conclusion of camp.

Lap-a-Thon – Gilmer High School (GA)

Racing

Anyone who has ever ran distance before knows that the hardest part isn’t necessarily the physical aspect, but the mental component of the sport, and in true Cross Country fashion, the Bobcats’ ‘hardest fundraiser,’ forces participants to run for an hour and a half around the track without stopping, with the main goal of seeing who can run the most laps consecutively in that time. Each lap ran accumulates money from sponsors, and all proceeds go towards funding the team.

Lift-A-Thon – Avon Lake (OH)

Earlier this Summer, the Shoremen football team held their 26th annual lift-a-thon, where players perform their max in 4 lifts, including the squat, hang clean, bench press, and deadlift in front of a crowd. Donations could be made in a player’s name, or to the team generally. Whittier Christian (CA) has a similar event coming up, the Push-Up-a-Thon, and Gilmer.

3 v. 3 Soccer Tournament – Roy High School (UT)

In the warm up to the Utah Spring Season, the Roy Royals Boys Soccer team held a 3v3 soccer tournament. At $20 per player, it was billed as a tune up for the year’s games across all levels, with teams starting at age 6 through adult.

Home Run Derby – Desert Ridge High School (AZ)

HRDerby

To help assist a teammate with unforeseen medical costs, the Jaguars held a home run derby. Split into two age groups, “19 and over” and “18 and under,” participants paid $20 to hit baseballs out of the park. The total raised, including raffles, auctions, and concessions, was $2,671!

Top Golf – Lakota West High School (OH)

Instead of practicing their own sport, the Firebirds of Lakota West held a fundraiser at the local West Chester Top Golf branch. At $100 per golfer, the cost included heavy appetizers, soft drinks, and visits from Lakota West NFL alumns Jordan Hicks (Philadelphia Eagles) and Ryan Kelly (Indianapolis Colts).

Local Restaurant EventsErie (CO), Lowell (MI), Westonka (MN)

If there’s one thing everyone loves, it’s food. Several schools connected with local restaurants and held fundraisers there. Whether the deal was for a portion of the day’s earnings donated back to the school (Chipotle and Buffalo Wild Wings are good national candidates for this), an ‘all-you-can-eat’ Belgian Waffles special, or selling coupons, this idea is a simple turn-key way to start earning.
