The regular season is just days away for
both Leander and CedarPark,
with each school getting ready for opening matches before heading off to the prestigious Duncanville Tournament of Champions
CedarPark The opening two weeks of practice have gone
well according to Lady Timberwolves' coach Rebekah Hajduk-Almanza, and she was very pleased with the team's performances in
Friday's tri-scrimmage with Class 3A power Manor and private school St. Michael's and the Saturday team scrimmage at PflugervilleConnallyHigh School.
"We got plenty of time in on the court and I felt like we did well at times on both days," Hajduk-Almanza
said. "Saturday was the better of the two days for us, but we also know there is still a lot to work on before we start the
season on Tuesday."
The offensive and defensive sets seem to be running about equal, according to Hajduk-Almanza, as
the Lady Timberwolves spent most of the weekend working on technical parts of their game.
"Things are starting to come
along, especially with our passing and digging," she said. "Although we are having to scramble a bit without Aubrey (Winert)
in the lineup."
Winert, a junior middle blocker who looked to have an impact at the net, will miss the next two to
three weeks with a stress leg fracture.
The injury has moved a few players around to make up the difference, letting
players like sophomore outside hitter Zanny Castillo have a chance to shine.
"I have been so impressed with the play
of Zanny Castillo up front, and she's adjusted well since moving over from the outside," Hajduk-Almanza said.
CedarPark opened up the regular season with a home match at Tuesday against AndersonHigh School.
