After a week of grueling conditioning drills, afternoon practicers and a pair of scrimmages, the Mineral Wells Lady Rams volleyball team will begin the non-district portion of the regular season at home today against Millsap.

The freshman and junior varsity matches will begin at 5 p.m. followed by the varsity contest at approximately 6 p.m.

Lady Rams head coach Taylor Eggleston said she mixed and matched several combinations during the scrimmage matches this past weekend and added that the first few weeks of non-district play – including tournaments at Boswell and Glen Rose – to try and determine the right combinations for her squad.

“Overall, I was pleased (with the first week of practices),” Eggleston said. “There are still many areas we can improve in, and once we start understanding each other I feel we will be successful.”

The coach said she was pleased with what she saw in scrimmages this past weekend against Western Hills and Glen Rose.

“Some areas that stood out were our serving and serve receive,” Eggleston said. “This is a team that is learning and growing, and I feel that the girls are ready to take on the next challenge.”
