Following over a month of road action, the Uvalde Lobos will be back in the friendly confines of Uvalde High School’s Harvey Kinchlow Gym for volleyball action next Friday.
The Lobos will make their District 29-5A home debut as they host the Eagle Pass Winn Lady Mavericks.
Coach Russell McElroy’s Lobos, 8-14 for the season, will enter play against the Winn girls following district road action against the San Antonio McCollum Cowboys Friday night and a road match against the Harlandale Indians set for Tuesday night.
The Lobos entered their district opener against McCollum Friday night coming off three consecutive non-district wins, including a 25-19, 25-18, 17-25, 13-25, and 15-13 victory over the Crystal City Javelinas last Tuesday at Crystal City.
Prior to the Crystal City match, the Lobos downed the Carrizo Springs Wildcats and the Pearsall Lady Mavericks, 25-10, 19-25, 25-17, and 26-24.
The Lobos will celebrate Dig Pink Night as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Oct. 10 when they host the San Antonio McCollum Cowboys in District 29-5A volleyball competition.
Prior to the start of the varsity volleyball contest in Uvalde High School’s Harvey Kinchlow Gym, there will be a special ceremony to commemorate the celebration of life.
