With the bull’s-eye squarely on their back after claiming the District 8-5A championship last season, the Copperas Cove Lady Bulldawgs sent an early season statement behind the play of seniors Mikayla Blount and Qiana Canete.

Canete led with nine kills, 11 digs and four blocks while Blount added 12 assists, eight digs and three blocks as Cove blasted visiting Leander Rouse 25-18, 25-9, 25-16 in the season opener Monday afternoon in Copperas Cove.

Fellow senior Bryaunea Hall added six kills and four blocks while Lily Drever added 11 digs and Destiny Henderson and Lexi Perez had eight apiece as the Lady Bulldawgs racked up 68 total digs. Henderson also led with two aces.
