The Coppell volleyball team plays Plano West at Coppell High School Arena, with play beginning at 6:30 p.m. tonight.

Plano West defeated the Cowgirls, 3-0, on Sept. 9.

“It wasn’t our strongest showing [against Plano West], being our first district match,” Coppell senior outside hitter Skye LaMendola said. “We didn’t have the experience that we have now and we were still figuring out lineups and what works best for us.”  

The Cowgirls start their second round of District 6-6A play today. They are currently second in District (6-1) and second in district play with their only loss being to Plano West. If the Cowgirls beat Plano West, both teams will be tied for first place in District 6-6A.

“It would be a huge booster for us because it’s been a minute since we’ve won against Plano West,” LaMendola said. “Going out and proving we can win against everyone in the district would show us we could go pretty far in the playoffs this year.”
