The Cardinals opened the season against the Fort Bend Austin Bulldogs looking to change the outcome from last year.  Things didn't go as planned; and the Lady Bulldogs took a bite out of the Cardinals.  Fort Bend Austin is loaded this year with three GHVCA Fab 50 players and bench full of seniors.  The veteran Bulldogs are projected to win their district and be in the hunt for a state title.  

The Freshmen, JV and Varsity exited the dog pound without a single set victory.  After a week of practice and two days of scrimmages, the Lady Cardinals understood their offensive attacks and defensive assignments; but, were held back by several mental breakdowns and gaps in skill execution.  Coach Clarke said, "Austin is very good; we needed to play near perfect ball to stay with them and we didn't do that."
