No Breaks In the Schedule for Volleyball

Monday, August 28, 2006
With their District Record standing at 2-0 the Mavs entered this past weekend Froline Volleyball Tournament in New Braunfels with some added confidence. The 36 team 2-Day Tournament attracts some of the best squads from Austin, San Antonio and through out the State. Madison did not have an easy draw but played tough against some formidable opponents. On day one Madison dropped their first match to a very impressive Hays High School squad. Madison did take the Rebels to 3 sets in the best of 3 format. The Mavs would rebound in their second round match up as they beat up on Harker Heights taking 2 sets to advance on the consolation bracket side. The 3rd round Madison would have to play two matches as they were defeated by host New Braunfels Canyon High School. The fourth match of the day tested the Varsity stamina but the Mavs just did not have enough in the tank to get by Judson. Going 1-3 in the Tourney was hard to swallow but Madison again held it’s own verses some of the areas best squads as our Lady Mavs continue to improve.

Looking ahead to this Tuesday the Lady Mavs will have a big showdown at Littleton as they will take on the Smithson Valley Rangers at 5:30pm. Smithson Valley is tied with Madison atop the district 26-5A with a 2-0 record. The Rangers have beaten Roosevelt and MacArthur and were one of the top teams in the Region last year. Tuesday’s contest will be the only district match next week as the Mavericks travel to Seguin for their last Tournament of the season on Friday and Saturday.
