It was not the start that new Lady Cats volleyball coach Charlotte Beck hoped for as her teams dropped a pair of matches last week.  However, she is encouraged by some of the little things that she sees early on in her young season. 
“Even though we lost, I’m very proud of the effort,” Coach Beck said. “They played hard and with heart.”
In their first match of the week, last Tuesday, at home, the Lady Cats were upended by a very strong team in the Buffalo Lady Bison. The varsity squad surrendered games of 17-25 and 11-25.  The JV team also came out on the wrong end of 17-25 and 12-25 tallies.
Coach Beck took the show on the road last Thursday night at Sherwood and, there, her varsity girls fell to the Lady Marksmen by a pair of losing games, 11-25 and 11-25. 
“The girls didn’t bring the same intensity they had on Tuesday (versus Buffalo),” Coach Beck stated.  “But the JV played much better,” she went on to say.
The JV squad lost both games by narrow scores of 22-25 and 23-25. 
This week, Lady Cats volleyball will stay in Benton County as they’ll travel to Lincoln on Tuesday (9/10).  That game will begin at 6:00 pm.  They’ll be in Cole Camp on Thursday to take on the Lady Bluebirds on Thursday and that game is slotted to start at 5:30 pm.
