The Smithson Valley Rangers and the Canyon Cougarettes will try to maintain it tonight in the second round of the volleyball postseason.
The Rangers will travel to Austin Andersen High School at 7 tonight. The Cougarettes will play Waco Midway at 8 tonight at Pflugerville Connally High School.
The match tonight will be the Rangers first playoff game since 1985. but coach Margaret Mitcham is not worried about her team s postseason inexperience.
“We had never won the district before this year either," Mitcham said. “We’re just looking at this match as just a match. We’re going to take it one match at a time. But we are going to
go in there with a do-or-die atti- _
tude because we know if we lose, we turn in our equipment.’’
Mitcham is not sure what to make of the Andersen team she scouted against Waco last week.
“They really didn’t play very well,” Mitcham said. “I got their base defense. But I really didn't get a chance to see how they play against good teams. I don't know if they’re the type of team that plays down to their opponents.
They weren't really challenged.”
The Canyon Cougarettes weren’t really challenged in their first playoff game against Uvalde either. The Cougarettes won the match 15-1, 15-0.
‘We’re going to take it one match at a time. But we are going to go in there with a do-or-die attitude because we know if we lose, we turn in our equipment.’
— Ranger coach Margaret Mitcham
Canyon coach Donna Boehle expects a tougher match tonight against Waco Midway.
“They hit mostly from the outside.” Boehle said. “They single block the middle. They’re supposed to be an excellent defensive team. They serve floater serves.”
And if the Cougarettes run into something that Boehle doesn’t know about, she is confident they can handle it “We're going into it knowing we're going to have to make some adjustments." Boehle said. “We're going to play to our strengths. I expect us to he pretty effective in the middle."
The 28-4A runner-ups will also he facing the first of what Boehle hopes w ill he a long line of district champions.
“As tough as our district was, I think it prepared us well for the playoffs,” Boehle said. "It helps you reach a higher level of play.”

Rockets go on tho defensive to beat Jazz 75-72
Putting the best possible spin on it, the Houston Rockets’ victory over Utah was a great defensive contest.
Looked at another way, by Houston’s Charles Barkley, We didn’t play well, but we won. We don’t have to play well to win.”
Utah's Jeff Hornacek had a similar perspective on the 75-72 loss Monday night in which the Jazz were held to their lowest point total in franchise history.
"They’re probably walking around their locker room saying,
‘As bad as we played, we came out with a W', which is what we would have liked to have said," Hornacek said
The previous Jazz record for low points was 74, set in a game at New York in 1974 when the Jazz were based in New Orleans. Karl Malone led Utah with 16 points, but was held without a field goal in the fourth quarter, when the Jazz scored nine points.
