BORON – The Boron Ladycats Volleyball teams started their season with a game played at Desert Christian High School; unfortunately for the Ladycats, the game came with a loss on Aug. 15.

Desert Christian won the game in three sets: 21-17, 28-17 and 26-22. Desert Christian’s record for the season so far is 1-1 in non-league play and the Ladycats fall to a 0-1-record in non-league play. Boron played Antelope Valley High on their home court on Aug. 20 while Mojave hosted Desert Christian. The JV Ladycats won their game in two sets: 25-20 and 25-14 winning the game 2-0, while the Varsity Ladycats lost in five sets: 25-21, 25-17, 25-23, 25-18 and 15-11 losing to AV 3-2.

During a post-game interview, Boron JV Coach Brianna York said she is “proud of her team and the way they played today. “Most of my team has never played volleyball before so it’s going to be an interesting season; we’re going to keep working on some defense and things but all in all, I’m very proud of my girls.”

Boron Ladycats Varsity Coach Stacee Garrett says that, “even though we have a few seasoned players, there’s still some things we need to work on. The girls are really great and I am proud of all of them.”

Boron travels to Silver Valley, Mammoth, Trona, Kern Valley, Lone Pine and California City for their next few matches before returning to play at home to play on Sept. 17 against Rosamond.
