Triple R’s Bold Prediction of the Game:

“Otero Volleyball has shown they can play with the ‘big dogs’ this year. They knocked off a top-10 ranked team in Westen Nebraska last week. The loss against NJC shouldn’t deter them. They’ll get out early on a struggling TSJC squad and never look back.”

Triple R’s Game Prediction:

“Lady Rattlers defeat Lady Trojans in 4 sets.”


We take a day off tomorrow but we’re right back here for previews from Swink @ Rocky Ford in 2A volleyball action, along with the Rattlers traveling to Lamar to take on the Runnin’ Lopes.
