The Bowie High School volleyball team worked out the kinks with a scrimmage on Saturday in the high school gymnasium.
It was all in preparation for Tuesday’s season-opening match against regional qualifier Archer City here at home.
Look in the weekend Bowie News for complete results.
Bowie head volleyball coach Jeanie Stark had every reason to be happy with the Lady Rabbits’ performance.
Bowie split with Conference 4A Iowa Park in the opener and followed that with a two-set thrashing of Graham, another 4A program. The Lady Rabbits showed great resolve in splitting with Conference 5A Azle, coming back from three points down to win one of the sets.
“It was encouraging,” Stark said. “We were playing against good teams, playoff teams, and we were right there with them. For the sixth day of the season, I was pleased.”
Libero Karsen Morgan was a focal point, delivering solid passes to the setters and hitters. The Lady Rabbits showed strong communication and teamwork.
“We still have some work to do,” Stark said. “We still need to work on our defense and our serve receive.”
The Lady Rabbits will be using a 6-2 offense this season.
One of the more dangerous components for Bowie will be its unpredictability while serving. Read more in the mid-week edition of The Bowie News.
