The volleyball team will travel to Cowley for district playoffs this weekend. The squad will face Coffeyville Saturday at 3 p.m. who they beat early in the season.
“Coffeyville is an athletic team and plays with energy and excitement.” Head Coach Jennifer Ei, said “We need to play discipline and aggressive against this team to win.”
If the Cavs win they will face either Neosho or Cowley the same day at 5 p.m.
Cavs had Cowley on the ropes in their previous match with the Cavs up 13-10 in the fifth set but were unable to secure the victory and lost 17-15 in the set and 3-2 in the match.
“We could face Cowley in the second match,” Ei. “We need to play smart, consistent and aggressive volleyball to win the match.”
The Cavaliers have yet to have a real signature win on the season and they would love for that win to come this weekend. “This team is capable of anything,” said Ei. “It is a great opportunity for them to compete and win districts.”
The colleges women’s soccer squad is heading back to Topeka this year in pursuit of knocking down the door and advancing to Nationals. Standing in their way is a familiar face in Butler Community College. Butler beat the Cavs at home this year 1-0 in overtime and knocked them out last year in the playoffs 4-0.
The Cavs will face Butler at 6:30 p.m. today at Hummer Park in Topeka. If the Cavs win they will face the winner of Hutchinson and Barton County tomorrow at noon. Seven players on the team recently receive all-conference honors for their accomplishments. Courtney Hughes, Brooklyn Meinke, Ashlynn Summar, Sydney Alexander and Jenn Howell all got first team honors while Annie Poelzl got second team and Maddie Waner was an honorable mention.
The men’s soccer squad season unfortunately ended last week in a competitive loss on the road at Coffeyville. The Cavs fell behind early in the game 2-0 in the first half. The Cavs would rebound to draw the lead to 3-2 in the seventy sixth minute but eventually fell short 4-2. They finished the season with a 7-7-3 record.
