Last week Bellaire Volleyball faced against two District 20-6A opponents and they logged two program wide sweeps.  

Reagan High Bulldogs
On Tuesday, each Reagan Bulldog team fell in straight sets to their Lady Cardinals counterparts.  The Chicks won (25-12, 25-9), the JV team won (25-3, 25-7), and Varsity team won (25-11, 25-5, 25-11).  In the last two seasons, the Cardinals have notched 4 consecutive program sweeps against the Reagan's Bulldogs.

Westbury High Huskies
Two days later, the Lady Cardinals executed a second program sweep of a District 20-6A opponent.  This time, Westbury was run out the gym by a relentless offensive display from all three Bellaire teams.  None of the Westbury teams were able to reach a double digit score in any set against the Cardinals.  The Freshmen Chicks crushed their opponent (25-7, 25-4), JV followed suit; winning (25-2, 25-5) and the Varsity only allowed a 6 total points across three sets (25-2, 25-3, 25-1).   Three varsity players earned double digit aces; Isabelle long had 13, Ella Hawes had 11 and Lauren Li recorded 10 aces.  Lauren also had a team high 8 kills in the contest.

This week, Houston's second ranked Cardinals will travel to rival Lamar tomorrow night and then travel to Milby on Friday.  

Lamar Texans
The Cardinals look to repeat a sweep of the Lamar Texans as they did earlier this season.  Bellaire travels to Lamar where freshmen action begins at 5:30 pm followed by the JV competition.  The Varsity competition holds the nightcap time slot beginning at 7:00 pm at the Pavillon (7525 Tidwell Rd Houston, TX 77016).  Anything can happen in Rivalry competitions; so we'll need the the Cardinal faithful to show up!

Milby Buffalo 
On Friday, the JV Cardinals travel to Milby High School (9215 Scott St, Houston, TX 77051) and the Varsity will play in the lead-off spot, 4 pm at Barnett Fieldhouse (6800 Fairway Dr. Houston, TX 77087).
