Coronado Volleyball Upsets Franklin on TWC Sports

Duke Keith

The second-ranked Coronado Thunderbirds have seven sophomores and a freshman on their varsity team but showed a lot of poise in defeating the top-ranked Cougars at Franklin on Time Warner Cable Sports.

The TWC Sports volleyball game of the week was a slug-fest, but in the end Franklin wasn’t able to stop the T-Birds’ sister act, Monica and Miranda Roberts. Monica, the sophomore, had three more kills (28) than her sister, team captain and senior, Miranda. Both sisters combined for a left side attack that the Cougars were rarely able to stop.

It’s been three seasons since Raul Lawrence’s T-Birds have downed Franklin, which makes this one extra special for Coronado. But Flo Valdez’s Cougars have a fair amount of youth as well, so this promises to be quite the rivalry over the next few seasons. It certainly will be when the teams head to Coronado for their second district 1-5A matchup on October 11.

Check your local Time Warner Cable Sports listings to see the game replay on Channel 24, digital channel 1891 or soon see it free on El Paso On Demand, ch. 831 for digital subscribers.
