league loss, 15-10,15-4
By MICHAEL CONDIFF
BUDA— Donna Boehle said she spent most of Tuesday night trying to figure out what happened to her Canyon High School varsity volleyball team in a straight-set loss to Hays Consolidated.
On Wednesday morning, she still had no answer.
“We just did not play like ourselves and I haven’t quite Figured out why,” Boehle said. “We just were not aggressive at all. We were very passive and that gave (Hays) the opportunity to get into their game — and they play their game very well.
“So do we, when we play our game. (Tuesday) we just didn’t”
The loss dropped CHS (17-7,2-2) into fourth place in District 28-4A. The Cougarettes close out the first half of league play on Friday by hosting Smithson Valley, which kept a share of the loop's second slot Tuesday with a victory over Bastrop.
CHS was tied with Hays at 10-10 in the first set, before allowing the Rebels to serve out the game. The Cougarettes were also tied in the second set, 4-4, when Hays took command.
“We played right into their hands,” Boehle said. “We made a lot of errors and just did not attack very well.”
Kristi Reinter had four kills, while Courtney Daffin and Elizabeth Weisman added three each for CHS.
Lesa Porter had two blocks and two kills, while Daffin and Stacey Pape each contributed eight digs.
■Jhe CHS junior varsity claimed a 15-8,15-5 decision over Hays on Tuesday.
Amanda Simons, Marci Allen, Thuy Lee Nguyen and Cheryl Dunn all played well for the Cougarettes (13-6,3-1).
The CHS JV was coming off a victory Saturday in the Clemens Junior Varsity tournament.
Canyon defeated San Antonio South (15-3,15-9), San Antonkm Jay (16-14,15-11) and San Antonio Madison (15-13,15-10) to win the tournament.
Dunn, Nguyen, Allen, Julie Poppoon and Natalie Lane all had strong efforts for the Cougarettes.

SMITHSON VALLEY — Rachael Johnson had six kills and Kristen Growcock rifled four aces on Tuesday as the Smithson Valley High School varsity volleyball team defeated Bastrop, 15-13,15-1, in a District 28-4A contest in the SVHS Gymnasium.
The victory allowed SVHS (11-6, 3-1) to keep pace with Hays Consolidated a game behind league front-runner New Braunfels.

Bastrop (6-16,0-4), which starts five sophomores and a freshman, kept pace with the Rangers through most of the first game. In the second set, the experienced Rangers dominated.
“After the fust game, the girls decided not to dilly-dally around,” SVHS coach Margaret Mitcham said. “I think they wanted to see if they could beat someone 15-0 — and they almost did it.”
Allyson Kitchel had four blocks for the Rangers, while Amanda Mazurek dished out 13 assists and Growcock had four digs to go with her four aces.
Shelly Sauer and Kandace Moehrig also played well for the Rangers.
Friday’s district games close out the first half of league play and loom as the most important of the season for the top four teams.
Smithson Valley suffered its lone district loss last Friday against New Braunfels. The Rangers hope to carry lessons learned in that setback into the Canyon matchup.
“I think the girls learned a lot about com-, posure (against New Braunfels) and I probably learned something — not to let my girls get aced eight times in a row before I try to do something about it,” Mitcham said
m The SVHS junior varsity team defeated Bastrop 16-14,15-4 on Tuesday.
The Rangers are now 174 overall, 3-1 in District 284A.
