Eye on the ball

Brazos freshman Haiven Harris serves the ball earlier this season. 

New boss, same as the old boss in Wallis.

Brazos High School volleyball has had a thorough roster turnover to open the 2019 season but that hasn’t stopped the Cougarettes from reaching the same spot the program did last season.

The Cougarettes enter the 2019 Region IV-2A playoffs as the District 27-2A champion for the second straight season and will face Kenedy in the bi-district.

Brazos (12-13) will battle Kenedy (1-12) on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at Hallettsville High school at 6:30 p.m.

The 2018 Cougarettes defeated Kenedy in the bi-district round, 3-1, before falling to Snook in the area round.

The Cougarettes have relied on a roster that does not include a senior. On top of that, head coach Denyse Fernandez’s squad has six underclassmen on the 11-member roster.

The youth movement for Brazos has resulted in growing pains for the Cougarettes but Brazos has rounded into form in time for the playoffs.

The Cougarettes finished non-district play with a 2-9 record but enter the playoffs with an 8-1 run during district play. Brazos avenged both district losses to Shiner and Weimar to secure the district crown.

A victory Tuesday will advance Brazos to the area round for the eighth-straight season.

The victor of the bi-district match will face the victor of the matchup between District 26-2A runner up Snook and District 25-2A third-place finisher Granger.
