The varsity volleyball team is headed to the playoffs after dominating all season with a record of 19-2 and 12-1 in district play.

Their latest victory came against North Garland in dominant fashion taking it 3 sets to none with each set being decided by 15 or more points.

“It was a great way to start wrapping up district,”  sophomore Macy Taylor said. ”We were on fire from the start and picked up an easy win.”

The Lady Mustangs have key wins against rivals Wylie and Rowlett. Their only loss came in game two of the season series against Wylie.

They won the first battle against Wylie in 5 sets.  After dropping two out of the first three, they battled back and won the game.

“They came out really aggressive and surprised us,” junior Macy Puckett said.  “We had to turn it back around on them and attack, and we won the game.”

In their second meeting with Wylie, the Pirates were too much for the Lady Mustangs to handle losing in 4 sets. After taking the first set they dropped three straight and took a tough district loss.

“We had a groove going after the first set, and they just overpowered us in the next three sets,” junior Zoria Heard said.  “We weren’t able to keep up with their pace. It was tough to lose.”

The Lady Mustangs are tied for the district lead at 12-1 with Wylie. They enter the playoffs with a matchup against Tyler Legacy on Friday, Nov. 20 at neutral site Wills Point High School.
