Athletes competing in football and volleyball got to work this week in Bryson Cowboy country.
Volleyball Coach Marci Faulk reported that Bryson won in Forestburg, Tuesday, with scores of 25-17; 21-25; 25-15; 25-17.
Lydia Keyser had 6 kills, 2 aces, 1 block, 9 assists, and 9 service points. Avery Robinson had 6 kills, 8 aces, and 16 service points.
Kaycee Maddox had 4 kills, 4 aces, and 10 service points. Ashten Wiedebusch had 2 kills, 1 ace, and 5 service points. Katie Sherrin had 2 kills, 2 aces, 2 blocks, and 5 service points.
Lindsey Martin had 1 kill and 1 ace. Rebecca Goodman had 3 aces, 7 assists, and 6 service points. Demi Butler had 1 ace, 4 assists, and 4 service points.
"At times we looked good, then we'd turn around and have a mistake or two. It's early in the season and we are working on playing more consistently," Faulk commented.
"I was proud of my freshman and sophomores. I think they did a good job considering it was most of their first varsity match."
Bryson hosted a tournament over the weekend and Faulk said they were looking better, but the tournament wasn't over.
Bryson's Athletic Director/Head Football Coach Danny Copeland is new to Bryson this year.
He says that he is excited about the upcoming season with 25 boys playing. With numbers that high, they will be able to have junior varsity and varsity teams.
The Cowboys hosted a scrimmage at Cowboy stadium Friday against Saint Jo and Wichita Christian Academy.
Copeland said, "The boys looked good tonight, but we still have some things to work on. I feel good about this team. Even though I only have two seniors returning, I am confident that the younger classmen will step up to the challenge they have ahead of them."
