If you miss out on the Gold Bracket, you might as well win the Silver bracket, right?

That’s just what those feisty Anderson Trojans did on Saturday, dropping nary a set as they cruised to a Championship Game win over Giddings.

Trojanvball_AISD-tourn-silver4_20160813After nine grueling sets of action on Friday, in far north San Antonio (Akins High School), the Trojans squared off against old district opponent Austin High, in a “rivalry renewal.” Shaking off a few early-morning serving hiccups, the Trojans downed the Maroons 25-18, 25-23.

Next up was Poth, a venerable volleyball program from southeast of San Antonio, fresh off a three-set defeat of Cedar Ridge, who defeated our short-handed Trojans last Tuesday night in our sultry gym. The Trojans disarmed the Pirates 25-18, 25-18 with a withering assault of broadsides that kept the bigger Poth girls on their heels.

The Silver bracket finals saw the Trojans lined up against a Buffaloes squad eager to shed their image as bulky, lumbering grass-eaters. But there would be no stopping the rolling Trojans, who hunted down the Buffaloes 25-18, 25-19, to capture the Championship.

Congratulations to Coach Byers and MVPs Kristina Fisher and Rachel Snead, for leading a sterling all-around effort, with important contributions from across the board.
