Texas State Notebook: Volleyball falters, soccer drops home opener

Texas State didn’t have a very good Friday night.

The volleyball team dropped two of its first games on the road to TCU and Arizona (The Bobcats swept in both games) and the women’s soccer team couldn’t find the equalizing goal in a 1-0 home loss to McNeese State.

In front of 1,795 fans in Fort Worth, Texas State fell in three sets (25-117, 25-15 and 25-17) to the Horned Frogs despite outblocking TCU six to four.

Having been an athletic trainer and strength coach for various teams from high school to the pros, the recent start of football found me looking at the number of injuries that are occurring.  

The three that caught my interest the most were knee injuries, hamstring pulls and Achilles tendon ruptures.  All deal with the leg and that pertains to runners as well.

Not literal fireworks of course, but the way San Marcos and East Central lit up the scoreboard last season, it may as well have been engulfed in flames.

More than 1,400 total yards later, the Rattlers emerged with a 59-56 season-opening win.

“I think they’re (East Central) going to come out guns blazing and we are too,” San Marcos head coach Mark Soto said. “It might be the same looking game which is exciting for fans.”

A year after notching San Marcos Academy’s first playoff win in 15 years, the expectations are the same as ever for Coach Les Davis’ team.

Win as many games as possible.

“The same expectations for the last 36 years I’ve been coaching,” Davis said before the Bears face Charlotte High School during their season opener at 7 p.m. tonight. “I expect to win every game we play. Is that realistic? I don’t know. I’m not going to tell the kids that they can’t. As long as we are reaching for the stars, we’ll get pretty high anyway.”
