Area volleyball news



With all local volleyball teams now in the mix of district play, the meaningful games will be on tap for the balance of the regular season. Some of Parker County’s prep teams are not only perched atop their respective districts, but are moving up in the state polls, as well.

The Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA) has taken notice of Springtown’s winning ways, as the Lady Porcupines are currently sitting at No. 7 in the Class 3A rankings. Pojo swept its first two district matches and will attempt to go 3-0 when it travels to Mineral Wells on Friday.

Like Springtown, Aledo was absent from the poll before the season started. The Ladycats helped the state’s coaches correct the oversight soon into the season, and the AHS girls now sit at No. 4 in the very tough Class 4A.  

Brock began the season in the TGCA’s spotlight, ranked at No. 4 in the pre-season Class 2A survey. The Lady Eagles have not disappointed, winning nearly everything  in sight (and on their slate), catching enough attention to move up to No. 3.

And Peaster is in the limelight, as well. The Lady Hounds have climbed into the state poll, are ranked No. 16 in Class 2A and have their eyes on another return to the playoffs.

Of course, the polls have little (in fact, nothing) to do with the outcome of district and state playoffs, but they are a pretty good indication of who to keep an eye on, and besides, they are a lot of fun.


Weatherford bounces back over Lady Panthers 

 After losing a heartbreaker to North Crowley last week, the Lady Roos came back from two games down, outlasting Paschal in five, 25-27, 15-25, 25-22, 25-22, 16-14. 

Leading performers for the WHS girls were Lexi Cassels with 18 kills and Lexi Garner with 16. Cassels also had 24 digs, while Chelsea Freeman led the defensive effort with 35 digs. Garner added 29 digs. Jordan Harvey had 20 assists and Molly Bateman had 10.
