An incredible season continues for New Braunfels Canyon's volleyball team. With huge wins over big name volleyball programs, the Cougarettes have advanced to the Regional Semi-Finals for the UIL 5A division.
Showing grit and talent, Canyon has knocked off Austin Leander, San Antonio Harlandale, and Leander Rouse to make it's appearance in the 4th round of playoffs. The Cougarettes are matched up against Corpus Christi Flour Bluff. The undefeated Flour Bluff, having only dropped 3 sets all season, will be tough competition for the Cougarettes, but the team will surely compete. Having themselves finish district undefeated and only losing one match on the season- the match is sure to be outstanding.
WHEN YOU LOOK AT CLASS 5A PROGRAMS AND DOWN, IT ISN'T A SURPRISE TO SEE PLAYERS EXCELLING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL.
Moving up to the UIL's highest classification, where the school attendance numbers and football roster sizes are much bigger, it becomes rarer to find that. Especially, to find a player who not only plays on both sides but is recognized on All-District lists at year's end.
