2022 VOLLEYBALL BI-DISTRICT PLAYOFFS
POTH WINS IN THREE GAMES:25-17, 25-21, 25-8
COWGIRLS HANG TOUGH IN OPENING SETS BUT FALL IN POSTSEASON SWEEP AT DEVINE HIGH SCHOOL
Cotulla played perennial volleyball playoff power Poth tough for two sets before succumbing to the Lady Pirates offensive onslaught in falling in straight sets 3-0 in the bi-district playoffs last Tuesday, November 1 in Devine.
Poth edged the Cowgirls in their first two sets, taking a tight 25-17 decision in the opener and even tighter 25-21 decision in the second.
Cotulla managed to hold leads early on in the first set and fought tooth and nail in the second but could not make the plays to pull ahead late and lost the third set 25-8.
“The girls played really well and competed well in the first two games against Poth,” CHS Head Volleyball Coach Christina Few said. “Then we just fell behind due to too many errors in the third game.
“Poth is a great team with a well established volleyball program; they go to state almost every year or so. I was very proud of how the team came out and put up a great fight.”
The effort from her team in the first two sets is what Few says she preaches to her squad regularly.
“One of the things that I’ve been trying to instill into these young ladies is to fight,” she said. “No matter what the score is, no matter what we’re facing, no matter who we are facing; you always fight. And for the most part, I think the girls have really done that this season. They fought to the very end and that is something that they will carry on into life.
“I think the girls did a great job of starting the year out athletically, representing the Cotulla Cowgirls program very well. I have no doubt that they will continue to do great things in all sports throughout the rest of the year.”
Cotulla finishes its volleyball season with an 11-23 record overall and 4-6 mark in league play. The Cowgirls were fourth overall in the standings behind Hondo, Crystal City and Lytle. Hondo and Crystal City are in their first year of dropping down a classification from Class 4A.
