The NS Boys and Girls Cross Country team headed to The Woodlands in hopes the sun kept shining and rain stayed away for their first race of the season. Turns out rain and mud were a there to stay but strong performances still showed up. The Freshman Boys team had two top 25 runners, who lead their team to finish 9th. Both Varsity teams had tough competition to run against, but with the weather, they still performed with perseverance! NS XC will head to Katy Seven Lakes on Sept. 3 to race against regional competition.
The North Shore Lady Mustangs bounced back and had an outstanding night! Both Freshmen Red and White Teams came up short, but JV team battled point for point, and won the match in three exciting sets. The Varsity Lady Mustangs finished the night with a three set win against Pasadena Memorial (25-23, 25-16, 25-16). K. Armstrong had 15 kills and 3 blocks. J. Broadnax and T. Crouch each had 11 kills, and A.Hernandez had 18 digs and L. Ross with 39 assists. The Lady Mustangs will next travel to Conroe to take on the Lady Tigers on Tuesday @ 6:30pm!
The North Shore Lady Mustang Volleyball program faced off against the Lamar Lady Texans. The Freshman team came out victorious in a point by point battle that went to three sets (18-25, 25-22, 25-20). The JV team also battled, but fell short in two sets. And the Varsity Lady Mustangs played a tough match, but could not finish the match, losing the game in three sets. Overall, it's still early so the girls look to bounce back against Pasadena Memorial (Longhorn Invitational) on Friday, August 26 @ George Ranch HS. Come out and support your Lady Mustangs!!
The varsity team struggled some trying to overcome a slow, unorthodox Marshall offense. It was a brawl at times, and the Lady Jackets had to find their beast within, but in the end they battled to a 3 set victory. Alana Perez and Gloria Pulido led the team with 9 kills each, and the young Gloria had 18 attacks, 9 kills, and 0 errors for a 50% hitting average on the night!
