COAHOMA — The Bulldogettes found themselves in an 8-point hole early in the first set against the Lady Wolves on Saturday when Head Coach Jamie Bonner called her team into a huddle.
“I told them we have got to play our game,” she said. “We control the tempo of the game. We are going to control our own offense, and we’re going to make them play defensive. We stepped up, and we finally played our game.
Refocused, Caitlyn Corley started off Coahoma’s climb back with a solid kill. Fellow teammate MaKynlee Overton followed with an ace. Both CHS upperclassmen were instrumental in Coahoma’s first district win recording eight kills a piece.
After conquering the first set 25-23, Coahoma (1-1, 9-15) stayed ahead winning next two sets 25-13 and 25-13 despite confronting a tough Lady Wolves defense throughout the match.
“We knew coming in C-City is never going to give you an easy game, ever,” Bonner noted.
“They compete hard at everything. They are going to work hard, they are going to hustle, they are going to get to the ball, and they are going to make plays.
“We made some plays on our side that came from all out hustle, and we executed well,” she added. “We finally put the ball away. MaKynlee Overton just came out swinging. That was huge for us, and our teamwork was solid.”
Beside her kill count, Overton led the Bulldogettes with three aces and three blocks. Zoie Joslin had 18 assists. Julia Cox and Kirah Kimball had four kills each. Cox also recorded an ace.
Overall, Coahoma swept the Lady Wolves on Saturday. The JV Red team won in two sets: 25-20, 25-1

SWEETWATER — Serena Dobbs kicked it into high gear as she neared the finish sprinting from 10th to sixth place before crossing the line at the Roscoe Invitational cross country meet held on Monday.

In the junior high boys division, Jake Freeman earned another medal. He placed ninth with a time of six minutes, three seconds.
Next: The Coahoma Cross Country team will head to Abilene on Saturday, Sept. 28 for the ACU Invitational.

COAHOMA — The Coahoma Bulldogettes came back from a seven-point deficit to earn a victory against the McCamey Lady Badgers in three sets — 25-12, 25-19, 26-24 — on Tuesday night.
After two straight losses to Kermit and Big Spring, the ‘Dogettes (8-13) needed a win to get their focus back on district which opens Sept. 28 at Jim Ned.
“It was a huge win for us, especially after our loss last week to Kermit in five sets,” said Jamie Bonner, Bulldogettes Head Volleyball Coach following the game. “That was a heartbreaker. We had a really good practice yesterday, and I told them we have to learn how to finish, and we have to win in the end.”
And that’s just what her team did on Tuesday night. After falling to a seven-point deficit (4-11) in the third set, Coahoma went on a five-point streak to cut the Lady Badger’s lead down to two (9-11). By mid-match, the Bulldogettes tied the game after a solid kill by Julia Cox and surged ahead on the next serve.
The Lady Badgers were not so easily dissuaded from attempting to force a fourth set as they came back three times to tie the match before Coahoma put away the game 26-24.
“I’ve been telling them we have to finish,” Bonner said. “We can’t be scared to hit the ball. We have to use our offense the entire game. If it’s working for us, we can’t get scared because it’s game point and just push or tip the ball. We have to hit, and I think we did a good job of doing that tonight.”
Cox led the Bulldogettes to victory with 12 kills. MaKynlee Overton had six and Kirah Kimball pounded out five. Zoie Joslin recorded a whopping 21 assists
