the Dis trict 265A title with a 1614 159 victory over MacArthur on Tuesday night at Unicorn Gym The Unicorns could become out right district champions Friday with a win or a Madison loss It feels Unicorn coach Phyllis Fowler said Theyve worked hard for it all year I think they deserve The Unicorns are 111 in one of the toughest volleyball districts in the state Its a great accomplishment to do what they have done in this Fowler said No coach in this dis trict would have predicted a team would dominate the way these girls A lot of coaches probably would not have picked the Unicorns to even challenge for a playoff spot after moving up from Class 4A this sea son Weve really always been the underdogs in every Shelley Bredewater said I think a lot of teams didnt think we deserved to be ranked as high as we were We were ranked No 1 in the Austin paper AmericanStatesman and Judson didnt think we should be ranked ahead of them We had to show up to play every Joy Orr said the Unicorns shocked some teams with their play in the first round of district play I think a lot of teams didnt expect much from a little school that just got moved up from Orr said We surprised them though We were always the underdogs and we pulled The important thing was the Uni corns never considered themselves underdogs re Shelley Bredewater tries to score They told us who ever worked the hardest wouldv win the district And I guess we showed Shelley Bredewater i j our Bredewater said the first niatch in district competition is when the Uni corns began hitting on all cylinders We just all started

step a playoff spptTuesday night witrxa 153 AViriOver the tockhart A Canyon win combined with a Del Valle loss Friday night would put the Cougarettes in postseason play We Canyon coachbonna Boehle said The first game we played our standard game and played well The second we changed it up and played different It was a good tuneup for Donna Bdehle i Boehle said she used the Lopkhart game as practice for Fridays showdown with Hays The Cougarettes practiced the offensive and defensive sets they will be using against the Rebels It was Boehle We did so muph in the fir We went right into ana it just clicked We were teally sharp It was a good tuneHp for Hays We were making the defensive adjustments that we needed to make We did well on our game plan for The Cpugarettes are ed about Fridays garne and a possible playoff berth 1 think the girls have been real up and Boe said Theyve ben very motivated The gym has been just full of Cf Ppnw MW towards ptoyeffe with Hi win UeWwrt Area volleyball teams all getting ready for playoffs David Winder Sports Editor I never attended a volleyball match involving my own high school In college I went to three matches because I was covering them for the school paper So when Canyon coach Donna Boehle told me in midAugust that teams around here played a good brand of volleyball I wasnt really sure what she meant But after watching the Canyon Cougarettes New Braunfels Unicorns and Smithson Valley Rangers play this sea son I think 1 now know The volleyball teams of Comal County mean business when they step on the court This season the three teams have a combined record of 6124 In district matches the squads are even better turning in a 286 mark When these players step on the court they rarely lose At the beginning of the season New Braunfels coach Phyllis Fowler knew her team was going to be good She just didnt know when The young Unicorns surprised Fowler and everybody else by being good quick They even turned it up a couple of notch es when district play started shooting out of the gate with a 100 record Moving from Class 4A to the top team in one of the toughest 5A volleyball districts in the state is quite a feat The Smithson Valley Rangers also pulled off quite a feat by making the playoffs for the first time in 11 years Its especially sweet for the Rangers because of what has happen to them the past couple of years Canyon stopped Smithson Valley in matches at the end of each of the past two seasons to determine who would gain the districts final playoff spot This time the Rangers made sure they wouldnt have to play a match to decide who got the last playoff spot in the district Ranger coach Margaret Mitcham said the players set a goal at the beginning of the sea son to make the playoffs and to win the dis trict title One down one to go The Rangers can clinch at least a part of the district title with a win over Del Valle on Friday The Canyon Cougarettes also will have an interest in that game since they are now tied with Del Valle for third in District 284A The Cougarettes do hold the tie breaker over the Cardinals by virtue of beating them twice this season When the season was starting Coach Boehle was excited about the potential of her team Every one of our conversations had a mention about how much the Cougarettes had grown since the last prac tice or game Two months later and the Cougarettes have grown into a playoff team Im not a volleyball expert by any means But Ive got three great teams showing me what volleyball looks like at its best Kills Through Monday
