Be obsessed with improvement. This was Head Coach Gehrig Hotaling’s message to his team in the post-game huddle. The Cougars were coming off a 37-22 win against the Montgomery Vikings, but it still felt like the team wasn’t completely satisfied. For the second game in a row, the Cougars let a big lead slip away and were forced to regroup. Two weeks ago, against Acalanes High School, the Cougars jumped out to a 21-0 nothing lead but took the foot off the gas and ended up losing 42-41. The same thing happened Friday night; the Cougars looked dominate in the first quarter getting out to a 16-0 lead, only to fall apart in the second quarter and go into halftime tied at 16.
It’s been a while since the Technology High School girls were able to play volleyball. After last year’s Covid season, which saw multiple high schools cancel sports all together, the Titans came in not only with rust, but with eight girls who had never even touched a volleyball. Those factors put the Titans behind the eight ball.
