Last volleyball season was a transitional year for the Uvalde Lobos.
They went into the 2018 season facing lots of changes, including competition in a new, tough district, new players, and the challenge of playing a tough pre-district schedule.
Though they competed well in most of their matches, the Lobos finished toward the bottom third of new District 28-5A.
In their season finale, they played a competitive match against the playoff-bound Southside Lady Cardinals, but lost a 25-21, 25-11, and 25-22 decision.
The Lobos lost close district matches against Floresville and Somerset.
“Against some of the top teams in our district, we played some of our best volleyball. We did not win some of those matches, but we pushed those teams to the limit,” said UHS head volleyball coach Russell McElroy.
“We could have won a few more district matches, but we are still learning how to maintain a high level of play and to finish,” said McElroy.
Though the Lobos did not win many matches last season, they did accomplish a lot of positives.
