Led by senior Caina Sneed, McMullen County picked up their first district victory on Sep. 14 at home against Agua Dulce.

McMullen County took an early 6-0 lead in the first set to force a timeout. From then on, they kept their foot on the gas to complete the sweep. Sneed, the team leader in kills from last season, was all over the court for the Cowgirls.

“Along with it being my senior year and how much I improved from last year, I felt very confi- dent in myself this year,” Sneed said. “I’m really excited to get better and just compete.”

The win marked Head Coach Ana Billingsley’s first district victory at McMullen County. The first year head coach wants to use the win to build confidence and keep improving.

“We just want to take it one game at a time and one point at a time,” Billingsley said. “I told the girls to take advantage of every single ball coming over that net. We are trying to improve every single ball that’s coming over that day, so we have a lot of potential.”
