Kitty Kats win consolation at first Yorktown South Texas Showdown

YORKTOWN - The Yorktown Kitty Kats volleyball team won consolation in the Yorktown South Texas Showdown on Aug. 13-14.

The Kitty Kats lost a close match up with last years 3A regional finalist George West losing 23-25, 28-30.

They went on to beat Gonzales pinning them against Tilden for consolation.

Tilden had gotten the best of Yorktown twice last season so Yorktown head volleyball coach Deirdra Alexander was proud of their win and the improvement of the team. She said, “Tilden had a strong middle blocker but defensively they struggled and we were able to dominate that match.”

The championship game was a battle between last year’s state qualifier Lindsay and Weimar.

The Kitty Kats were Lindsay’s toughest opponent in the tournament leading up to the finale.
