Lady Steers fare well at Abilene High/Cooper Dual

August 14, 2013

Big Spring's Morgan Seaton sets the ball during a scrimmage Saturday. The Lady Steers will be in Abilene this weekend at the Bev Ball Classic Tournament.

ABILENE — Big Spring is ranked among the best in the state at the 3A level, but it's still tournament time as BSHS Head Coach Lynn Osborne guides her team through the predistrict leg of the season.

So far, so good. The Lady Steers earned a split at the Abilene Cooper/Abilene High dual meet on Tuesday, losing to the 5A Lady Eagles in three: 25-27, 23-25 and 18-25, but defeating Cooper in four sets: 21-25, 25-21, 25-19 and 15-9.

The experience against strong schools could be crucial for BSHS, who finds itself in one of the most competitive volleyball districts in Texas, with Abilene-Wylie again pulling a No. 1 rank in preseason polls. Also tied at 17th with Big Spring is Monahans, another district foe.

The Lady Steers will be back in Abilene for the Bev Ball Classic Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
