The Coppell Cowgirls (22-3 overall, 1-0 District 9-6A) have their annual Dig for the Cure night tonight and come into its first district home game riding a 10-match win streak as they will host the Pearce Lady Mustangs (6-10, 0-0).


“We are hoping to go undefeated throughout district,” Coppell senior defensive specialist Ava Racz said. “The goal is to come out strong against Pearce and be 23-3 as we head into the rest of the season.”


Tonight is about more than volleyball, Coppell is known as a town that gives back, and the volleyball team is no exception. Dig for the Cure night is dedicated to raising money for the fight against breast cancer.

“It’s rewarding knowing that being a high schooler you can still make a difference,” CHS senior libero Sam Silver said. “Raising money for breast cancer is important especially when 80 percent of women will be diagnosed with it. For me, it means a lot that the team cares so much about helping the cause since my mom was diagnosed last year.”


With events all throughout the game, there will be things such as a bake sale and T-shirts for sale to aide the team’s effort.


Tonight’s match begins at 7 p.m. in the CHS Arena.
