The 2011, 2012 and 2013 5A State Volleyball Champions, the Coppell Cowgirls, are off to an excellent start early in this season. The team took second place in the 2013 Texas Volleyball Invitational tournament in Pearland, TX, Aug. 15-17.
“Pearland is an incredible tournament,” head coach Julie Green said. “It is the best of the best in the state, so for us to go 7 and 1, and end up in the finals was really good. It was kind of an exciting start. It was cool for our kids to be able to participate in something like that.
“We lost in three in the finals to Woodlands. So I am really impressed with how they are playing now. I didn’t expect for them to play so well together so early.
“We definitely have some things to work on,” Green said. “We are not as big as we were last year. We graduated quite a bit of our offensive power, so we have some new kids who are figuring out where they fit in with the team. We have a lot of work, but we are in a good place.
