Volleyball Turns up the Heat in Seguin Tournament

Sunday, September 03, 2006
After dropping their first District match on Tuesday night to Smithson Valley, the Mavs could have entered the Seguin Tourney with their heads down and licking their wounds, but Coach Little had the Mavs ready to play as they entered Pool play on Friday.

Madison entered the Tourney with a record of 4-7; two of those losses were at the hands of Boerne and another was against district rival Judson in the New Braunfels Tourney. The Mavs would have the opportunity for some pay back on Friday as both Boerne and Judson were in the Madison Pool. Madison would get their first chance for revenge early Friday morning as they took on Boerne. In their two previous meetings this year Madison could not even muster a set win as Boerne had swept Madison both times in strait sets. On Friday Madison turned up the heat on the Hounds and showed they had come along way in just a few weeks taking Boerne to three games and just a couple of points from a Maverick victory.

With the momentum of their first match against Boerne Madison would face Judson. Judson had beaten Madison a week earlier in the New Braunfels Tourney and this time the Mavs would return the favor. It would again take three sets but the Lady Mavs would pull off the upset with a 25-18, 18-25, 25-16 victory. Madison would hang tough in their third match but could not get past the State #1 ranked and two time defending State 2A Champ Poth Pirates, losing 25-21, 26-24. Madison would finish off the day 2-2 as they would beat up on Stevens in the last match of the day by a score of 25-10, 25-11.

Madison entered Saturday with a nice record of 6-9 and 2-1 in district 26-5A play. Madison would be slotted in the Sliver division and would first have to take on another District 26-5A rival Roosevelt. The Mavs would catch Roosevelt flat footed and defeat the Rough Riders 25-16, 25-14 in the Semifinal match. The finals would pit the Mavs vs host school Seguin. Madison would make quick work out of the Matadors with a strait set championship victory 25-16, 25-22. Congratulations to the Lady Mavs as they win their first trophy of the Volleyball season.

Saturdays matches conclude the varsity tournament schedule for the Madison Volleyball squad and the Mavs can now concentrate on their run through district 26-5A. They will have their hands full this week as they get the State #1 ranked 5A squad in Reagan on Tuesday night at Littleton Gym at 7:15pm. They conclude their week with a rare home appearance at Madison’s Gym against Judson. Both of these matches will be important for Madison as they try to make the playoffs coming out of district 26-5A.
