The Cowgirls were swept by 3rd place Louise, as the Cowgirls finish their season with a 21-10 (10-0) season.

The McMullen County Cowgirls came out with plenty of pre-game enthusiasm in Goliad, but Louise quickly took control. Louise was able to jump on the Cowgirls early and often, en route to a three game sweep past Tilden, 25-10, 25-12, 25-18.

At the end of the night, defensive and offensive miscues proved to be the difference for the Cowgirls. The Cowgirls also missed at least 4-5 serves a contest, which also proved deadly. At the end of the day, the Lady Hornets were able to handle the pressure of playoffs as the Cowgirls folded. In the end, it was a great run for the District Champions from McMullen County.
