FLORESVILLE -- With 20 teams in action during the first day of competition, the annual Jaguar Classic volleyball tournament was once again a big draw. Teams from Laredo to San Marcos, and everywhere in between, converged on Floresville for a two day tournament Aug. 23-24.

On Friday, the teams challenged each other in pool play, and the Jaguars made a clean run through the competition. Floresville started off the day with a 25-23, 25-18 win over Harlandale, then made quick work of Laredo United, 25-7, 25-10. Later that afternoon, Floresville took out Pearsall 25-8, 25-12, and then wrapped up pool play that evening with a swift 25-4, 25-3 win over Highland’s junior varsity squad.

When bracket play began Saturday, the Jaguars found themselves paired up with Burbank, a team that went 1-3 during pool play. Floresville had no trouble with the Lady Bulldogs, though, knocking the team off, 25-10 and 25-4.

Up next for Floresville was Navarro, a team that went 3-1 through pool play with quality wins over Edison, Medina Valley, and Cole. The Jags kept things close, but eventually fell to the Lady Panthers, 25-19, 25-19.

The loss dropped Floresville into the fifth-place bracket, where the Jags first took on Stevens. Floresville rebounded from the loss to Navarro nicely, though, defeating the Lady Falcons 25-12 and 25-16. The Jags then played Laredo United, a team they had easily beaten in pool play, and picked up the 25-21, 25-18 win for the fifth-place tournament finish.

Meanwhile, Navarro advanced from its round two win over Floresville to defeat the Holmes Huskies in the third round, and eventually took on San Marcos for the championship. San Marcos made a clean run through pool play, and then knocked off Edison, Laredo United, and Taft en route to the championship game.

In the final contest, San Marcos got out to the early lead, winning game one by the score of 25-23, but Navarro stormed back to tie things with a 25-8 win in game two. Things tightened up in game three, but it was once again Navarro on top, 25-19. The Lady Panthers stayed the course in the fourth game and defeated San Marcos 25-13 for the championship.

San Marcos left town with second-place honors, and Taft defeated Holmes for third place. The Huskies finished fourth and Floresville was fifth.

Navarro’s Kelly Kubenka was named as the tournament MVP, while teammates Miranda Escobar and Emma Johnson were named as the outstanding setter and defensive player, respectively. Mikali Myers of San Marcos was named as the tournament’s outstanding hitter. When the all-tournament team was announced, Jaguars Micheala Sifuentes and Kristyn Coldewey made the list.

Floresville will be in Seguin this week, playing against the Lady Matadors, and then returning to participate in the Seguin Tournament.
