Abilene Cooper turns away Abilene High 3-0 in Crosstown volleyball


Cooper has an experienced, senior-laden volleyball team, and it showed in the annual Crosstown volleyball match against Abilene High.

After scoring the first 13 points in a 25-9 victory in Game 1, Cooper pulled out a pair of 25-23 wins in the next two games to sweep the Lady Eagles in the nondistrict match Tuesday at Cougar Gym.

Dazz Larkins pounded out a match-high 12 kills, and Jennika Willis added 11 as Cooper (4-0) not only remained unbeaten, but the Lady Coogs have yet to drop a game so far this season.

Cooper coach Nora Campbell said her team isn’t content with playing well. It wants to be an elite team that not only can contend for a district title playing in a tough Lubbock-area district with Wylie, but beat the state powerhouse teams from the Amarillo area it matches up with in the first round of the playoffs.

“We’ve talked about being great, but do you want to be elite?” Campbell said. “Because we know the tests that approach us in the district, and then everybody knows the Panhandle district we go against in the playoffs. That’s been burnt into our kids heads for years.”
