(SAN ANTONIO) – If there’s one thing that Donna High head volleyball coach Cindy Viesca is a firm believer in it’s to always challenge her team.

This weekend, Viesca gave her team a huge challenge as the Bravettes competed in the San Antonio Independent School District Tournament on Friday and Saturday.

Donna High faced the likes of San Antonio Southwest, Medina Valley and San Antonio Edison in the tournament and when all was said and done, they came home with a 3-3 record.

The Bravettes had a tough go at it on day one as they went 1-2 after losing to San Antonio Southwest and Medina Valley. They were able to defeat Corpus Christi Miller on Friday and the Bravettes hopes that would give them some momentum going into Saturday.

Donna High indeed rode that momentum as they defeated Eagle Pass Winn and San Antonio Edison in the second day to go 2-1.

Donna High now comes back home and will face Harlingen High on Tuesday night.

Here are the scores from this weekend’s action:

Friday

SA Southwest def. Donna 25-20, 26-24
