FLORESVILLE -- Each year, the Floresville Jaguar volleyball team hosts a tournament, and 20 different teams competed in the event last weekend.

Teams traveled from across South Texas, including San Antonio, Eagle Pass, Laredo, Corpus Christi, and Edinburg. Each team had four pool play matches on Friday, and then entered bracket play on Saturday.

The Jaguars looked good during pool play, and swept right past the teams from Fox Tech, Edinburg North, and John Jay, as well as the Floresville junior varsity team that was filling in for a no-show. The Jags finished as the No. 1 seed in the Maroon pool. Lytle was the No. 1 seed from the Black pool, Lockhart earned the No. 1 seed from the Grey pool, and Holmes was the top team playing out of the White pool.

In bracket play, the Jags started out with the team from Eagle Pass, and quickly blew past them by the scores of 25-5 and 25-10. In the second round, Floresville took on Corpus Christi Moody, and made quick work of them, as well, winning 25-9 and 25-14.

Floresville was challenged a bit more in the third round, as the Jags took on Lockhart, the top seed from the Grey bracket. Floresville didn’t slow much, though, and earned tournament win No. 7 by the scores of 25-13 and 25-14. That win put the Jaguars into the championship match against Holmes. Holmes made a perfect run through its pool against the teams from San Marcos, Laredo United, Randolph, and Edison, and then dropped Cole, Harlandale, and Providence in bracket play.

The Jaguars came out strong and won the first game by the score of 25-17, but Holmes came back to win the next three games, 25-22, 25-20, and 25-22. In doing so, the Huskies took home the tournament championship, and left the Jaguars in second place. Lockhart beat Providence to take third-place honors, and Laredo United knocked off Moody and Harlandale for fifth place. After losing to Moody in the first round of bracket play, San Marcos knocked off Eagle Pass, Hondo, and John Jay to win consolation.

Floresville setter Micheala Sifuentes was named as the tournament’s “Outstanding Setter,” and Kristyn Coldewey was named the “Outstanding Hitter.” Fellow Jaguars Sarina Thompson and Vanessa Rodriguez were also named to the all-tournament team.

Floresville was scheduled to host Medina Valley on Aug. 26, and will travel to Leander this weekend to compete in another tournament. The Jags will begin district play on Tuesday, Sept. 2, as they host Lockhart in Floresville.
