Jacksboro VB sweeps Bryson, Breckenridge
With three starters missing from a year ago, Jacksboro volleyball fans were unsure as to what to expect as a young Tigerette volleyball squad hit the court for their season openers Tuesday afternoon.
Much like last year, Jacksboro opened strong, getting a pair of sweeps over visiting Bryson (25-10, 25-21. 25-15) and Breckenridge (25-22, 25-10, 25-23). Last year both matches went to five games before the Purple prevailed.
Jacksboro second-year Coach Rosana Barbosa was pleased with the opening wins but saw things that needed to be improved on.
“We need to do a better job of getting balls out of the net and our net play overall,” Barbosa explained. “I did like the way we played together and work together. When we made a mistake, we didn’t get down on each other. We picked each other up.”
