Bryson Cowgirls host Ranger in practice game

Expectations are high once again in Bryson for the Lady Cowgirls volleyball team. After earning a trip to the Class 1A regional tournament a season ago, head coach Chelsea Kincaid said that each year she expects to become a better team.

β€œThe overall expectation of every year is to leave the program better than the way you found it,” she said. β€œ We aim to build not only better athletes, but also better people.”

With the official start of the season beginning Tuesday, Bryson hosted Ranger for a scrimmage Friday.

Ranger looked to be on their way to taking the opening set before a furious rally saw the Cowgirls storm back for the lead.

The Lady Bulldogs grabbed a 19-14 lead before that all changed at the blink of an eye. Maddee Moore had two easy kills and Kayleigh Pippin had a crucial dig to see Bryson storm ahead 22-19. Moore provided the final kill to give her team a 25-21 win in the first set.

The Lady Cowgirls jumped out to a 9-3 lead in the next set on a Alyssa Perez ace and took the set with ease.
