Kats begin with top 10 rank

 

It was midnight madness as 25 high school girls showed up for their first session of two-a-day volleyball practice at 12:01 a.m. Aug. 5. The girls open this season ranked ninth by the Texas Girls Coaches Association.
 
With the lights out to help the girls focus, head volleyball coach Diedre Alexander gave them the vision for this year, “redemption.”
 
Coach Alexander said, “Every year we come in here and it feels new. It’s a new start. A new school year. We set new goals. Why do we do that? We are good every year. Why do we want to forget that we are good? Why do we want to forget what we learned last year?”

Villafranca prepares for Junior Olympics in Detroit

 

   Alex Villafranca, incoming junior at Cuero High School, won gold in the 800 meter run at the National Qualifier track meet held at the D.W. Rutledge Stadium (Judson High School) in Converse on June 27. With this win she will be competing in the AAU Junior Olympics held in Detroit, Mich. July 27-Aug. 3.
   Villafranca ran the 800 meter in the time of 2:31 which is just off from her best time of 2:29.60.
   Villafranca described the race, “We started in a waterfall start instead of the staggard lane. I was in second almost the whole race. At the last curve I passed the girl, which is something not usually done, and then, there was just the straight-away. I still had more in me so I think I could have run faster but we were competing for place and not for time. When I passed the girl I never looked back.”
