Triumphs in triplicate

WEATHERFORD —  

 

Aledo, Springtown and Brock all took care of business on Friday, with each varsity volleyball team successfully clinching respective outright district titles. Aledo had little trouble dispatching Western Hills’ Lady Cougars, widening the margin of victory in each game in a 3-set sweep, 25-13, 25-7, 25-4. 

Winning district championships, and doing so undefeated has been a habit for the Ladycats over the past several years and the AHS girls will try to do that again on Tuesday, as they close out District 7-4A play on Tuesday at Arlington Heights. A sweep over the Lady Jackets will also complete a district sweep for Aledo, with a game count of 42-0 against the field. 

The Ladycats will head into postseason play in the first week of November. The Class 4A, Region I Bi-district round will likely pair up Aledo with Crowley or Burleson Centennial, who are currently tied for the fourth seed from District 8-4A.

Springtown clinched sole ownership of the District 6-3A crown with a sweep of Castleberry Friday, dominating the Lady Lions , 25-11, 25-14, 25-5.

The Lady Porcupines can finish with a 10-0 district mark on Tuesday with a win at Lake Worth. The SHS girls sport a 27-2 overall record after Friday night’s win.

Springtown will draw a bye in the opening round of the state playoff brackets and will play the winner of the bi-district match between representatives of District 7-3A (runner-up) and District 8-3A (third place finisher).

Like their district-winner counterparts, Brock’s Lady Eagles have also rolled through District 9-2A with dominance. A sweep past Ponder on Friday, 25-8, 25-13, 25-8,  secured the unshared title for Brock, who continue to flourish under the guidance of second-year head coach Keith Guyon, with a 36-3 season record.

Like Springtown, the BHS girls will sit out bi-district,  entering the Class 2A Region 2 Area round against the winner of a match between District 11 and 12 teams.
