San Marcos’ season is off to a rough start after Monday evening.
Despite 11 kills from senior Alex Contreras, the Lady Rattlers dropped their season and home-opener to the Bastrop Bears, 3-0 (25-15, 25-19 and 25-19) inside the Snake Pit.
A few hitting errors during the opening set left San Marcos playing from behind early. Despite being a team with eight seniors, last year’s senior-laden team meant there is still a lot of varsity inexperience in 2016. It showed early.
