Matadors sweep Harlandale, stretch district record to 13-0
(Seguin) - Seguin moved a step closer to a perfect District 26-5A volleyball season Tuesday night with a 3-0 sweep of Harlandale (25-17, 25-18, 25-20) at Goldie Harris Gym.

The Matadors, ranked No. 18 in this week's TGCA 5A state poll, bumped their record to 13-0 in district play, 26-8 overall.

Harlandale rallied from an early 9-1 deficit in the first set with eight straight points, but Seguin responded with a 5-0 run and kept the Indians at arm's length the rest of the way to win 25-17. The Mats only led the second set by a single point as late as 18-17, but closed with a 7-1 run in the 25-19 triumph. Seguin finished the third set with an 11-7 surge to turn a 14-13 lead into a 25-20 win.

Even with the dominant performance, Seguin head coach Kristi Stanley says her team agreed in the post-game huddle that there is room for improvement heading into the final three matches of district play.

"We definitely did some things tonight that were uncharacteristic," Stanley said. "Reaching for balls, not trusting each other, things at this point in our season we should not be going back to, so we just laughed and said 'well, great, we haven't peaked yet,' so we still have a lot of things we can work on and get better at, which is good. We still have hopefully a long way to go, and every day we need to learn something and get a little bit better."

Kaitlyn Baker led the attack with 11 kills, Emmy Riordan finished with eight, and Carsyn Dietz contributed seven kills to go with three block assists. Riordan and Julianna Harrington each came up with a solo block.

Riley Brittain set for 14 assists, while Savannah Luensmann delivered 13. Presley Engelke recorded a team-high 20 digs, with Riordan adding 10. Engelke and Ariann Canales each sent two aces over the net.

Any combination of a Seguin win or Boerne-Champion loss over the final three matches of the regular season will clinch the district championship and top playoff seed in 26-5A for the Matadors.

Stanley has been adamant that her players focus only on the immediate task in each remaining match.

"We've not talked about playoffs yet," the coach said. "I mean, I've barely looked at a bracket. It's one game at a time. We talk about every opponent. It doesn't matter where they are standing in our district, because everybody's got something to offer. Everybody's got somebody that we've got to try to stop. All of that's going to prepare us for any opponent we're going to face, so just learning to pick apart a defense, and what teams are going to do against us, and so every game is a teachable moment."

Seguin has an open date in the schedule this Friday, and resumes district play next Tuesday, Oct. 16 with a 6:15 road match at San Antonio-McCollum.

Navarro routs Brooks for fourth straight win
(San Antonio) - Navarro earned its fourth consecutive District 30-4A volleyball win Tuesday night with a commanding 3-0 sweep of Brooks Academy (25-4, 25-6, 25-9) in San Antonio.

Kelly Helms put away five kills for the Panthers. Helms and Berkley Andrews each came up with six digs. Sara Benner dished out 11 assists. Ashley Gosch was dominant at the service line, sending 12 aces over the net.

The win moves Navarro to 8-1 in district play, 25-11 overall. The Panthers trail district leader La Vernia by one match with three left on the schedule.

Navarro hosts Gonzales on Friday at 6 p.m., then closes out the regular season next week with a Tuesday road match at La Vernia and a home date with Cuero on Friday, Oct. 19.

Ingram-Moore hands Marion first district loss
(Ingram) - Marion suffered its first loss of the District 26-3A volleyball slate Tuesday night, dropping a three-set match to Ingram-Moore 25-19, 25-18, and 25-21.

Lizzie Abrameit led Marion with five kills and seven assists. Madison Doss totaled two service aces.

The Bulldogs are 5-1 in district play and have an open date in the schedule this Friday. Marion returns to district action next Tuesday, Oct. 16 with a 6 p.m. road match at Universal City-Randolph.
