The Cowboys boys volleyball team began their season a month ago. With big goals ahead of them this season and redemption awaiting them after not making it to districts finals, the team practices from Monday through Friday at 3:00.
The boys played in a pre-season tournament over this past weekend at Monarch High School. This gave the team and Coach Smitherman, who is also the coach of the successful girls volleyball team, a better understanding as to how they would perform in a real game setting. The Cowboys played a total of two games and won 2-1 against Coral Springs, but lost 1-2 to Cypress Bay.
“My hopes for this season are that we make it far in districts this year and hopefully win, especially because it’s my last chance to win as a senior. Our team looks very promising and I think we will do great.”
Many key plays came from the setter, Noah Gannon. He put hitters such as Dylan Zacca and Sam West in a good position in relation to the ball. This year the team picked up 5 new players, making a total of 15 players on the team. Many freshmen on the team have already begun showing their talents, which will benefit the team a lot.

With such little time together as a team, the boys volleyball team has done a good job of working hard to be the best they can be. They are pumped for an exciting season and with that attitude, the team has the right mindset for success and victory.
