CORPUS CHRISTI-Rust was for the most part non existent for the Alice volleyball team as they put their best foot forward following a almighty break from the court. The Alice Lady Coyotes showed no signs of a 10-day layoff as they swept the Miller Lady Bucs 3-0 (25-13, 25-12, 25-19), opening their district season 1-0 Friday night at Miller High School. Alice was a force from the service line, as they kept Miller from playing the ball consistently, which had been something the Lady Coyotes had struggled with in the early season. Despite the long break, Alice maintained their recent momentum, having won, now, four games in a row. "There was a little bit of rust there in the beginning, but after one rotation, they got it together and they were ready to play." head coach Missy Gonzalez said. "The girls played well from the service line. We didn't come away with a lot of digs, and the stats didn't look great, but we didn't give Miller a chance to really play the ball. Alice starts district 1-0 and will face a tough test Tuesday night as their road schedule continues inn Corpus Christi for a date with the Ray Lady Texans. Alice's Bianca Alvarez had a huge night with six aces, six digs and three kills, while Kat Ramirez, Leslie Rios and Marivel Hernandez each had three aces of their own. Lauren Barrios added six kills, while Molly Barrera and Paris Garcia had three apiece. Barrera also had nine assists.
