On April 9th, The St. Mary’s Volleyball team participated in the Trinity Spring Tournament. The Rattlers dominated their pool play bracket, defeating both the Trinity Tigers and the St. Thomas Celts in two sets. The Rattlers later advanced into the playoffs defeating cross-town rival, Our Lady of the Lake. In the final championship game, The Lady Rattlers fell short to Division II team Texas A&M Kingsville, landing second place in the tournament.
The following day, the St. Mary’s volleyball team had the opportunity to participate in the Sports Outreach Program. The Sports Outreach Event, (coordinated by the St. Mary’s University Ministry program) gives sports teams within the university the opportunity to build, reflect, and embrace on their unity and spiritual well-being. This team bonding experience included cooperative drills, competitive games, prayer, personal group discussions, and lunch. This was a great opportunity for the girls to grow stronger as a team after a long week of playing volleyball.
