So given the Cougarettes’ loss in the Region IV-4A finals last Saturday, it won’t be surprising to see some dots of red and black floating in the Unicorns’ sea of blue. Fowler said the volleyball tradition in New Braunfels brought the fans of both schools together “There is definitely a lot of support," she said "It dt>esn’t matter which team it is.’’
The Unicorns (27-10) will play the role of the underdog at this year’s state tournament, something they have been used to of late. New Braunfels posted upset victories against C lark, Austin Westlake and Memorial during its more recent run.
But a win over Cy Creek (38-1) would arguably be the biggest upset yet.
