Volleyball swept Boerne Champion for senior night, putting them at 12-1 in district. 

Some plan to continue their volleyball careers. Lillie Johnson is committed to Charleston Southern University, and Hayley Barsky is committed to Missouri Western State University.  

Volleyball’s next step is to take on the playoffs.

“I just would encourage them to work as hard as they’ve had for us,” head coach Melissa Miller said. “Through college, through their career and life. If they work as hard as they had in this program, you know they’ll be successful to whatever they set their mind to.”

Volleyball won its seventh game in a row Oct. 18 in a battle against Canyon, tying the Cougars for first in district.

The Rangers won in four sets – 25-20, 25-19, 25-27 and 25-13. 

“I think they’ve really done a good job of working hard in practice,”  Miller said. “I think maybe at the beginning of the season we just thought practice was more about going through the motions and just practicing to practice. Now they understand that if we come in and work on the things that are weaknesses, they won’t be weaknesses anymore.” 

With their win over Canyon, the Rangers secured a top seed for playoffs. 

“It’s exciting,” Miller said. “I mean it’s a tough district with a lot of teams that deserve to be in the playoffs, and not just to be there, but for us to be at the top of it, I think shows how determined and dedicated this team is.”
