Poth Pirette volleyball team dominates in district play

POTH -- Everyone knows that when it comes to Class 2A volleyball in Texas, Poth is one of the teams you are going to have to beat if you want to win a state title. Head Coach Patti Zenner has her team on track, and they are steamrolling the competition en route to another district title and playoff run.

The Pirettes began the district portion of their season back on Sept. 9, when they traveled to George West. The drive wasn’t much of an issue for the team, though, and Poth made quick work of the Lady Longhorns, winning out in straight sets.

From there, the Pirettes beat Dilley in three straight, and then had a nice little home stand in which they bettered the teams from Natalia, Karnes City, Jourdanton, and Three Rivers. With a 6-0 district record, the Pirettes traveled to Cotulla to finish out the first round of district play, and had no trouble, once again winning in straight sets.

A closer look at the numbers will tell you just exactly how good the 2011 Poth volleyball team really is.

Through their first seven district games, the Pirettes not only remained unbeaten, but didn’t even drop a single set. Poth beat each of the seven other district schools by way of 21 straight-set victories. To reinforce the point, consider that the average margin of victory for Poth has been 25-13 per set. And in case you were wondering, only two of the seven teams were even able to score more than 15 points against the Pirettes in any one set. George West did it, and Cotulla scored 18 points in one set.

When Poth began the second round of district matches Oct. 4, the Pirettes beat George West again in straight sets. At home Oct. 7 against Dilley, it was more of the same story. There is, quite honestly, no reason to believe that the trend will change, as the Pirettes continue their quest for another district, regional, and state title.

Assuming Poth goes on to win the district title, which seems quite clear at this point, the Pirettes will enjoy a first-round bye in the playoffs. The area championship round of competition will be held Nov. 3-5, with regional quarterfinals scheduled for Nov. 7-8, and the regional tournament Nov. 11-12.

The state tournament is scheduled for Nov. 17-19, and the Poth Pirettes have every intention of being there. And if they continue to play at this level, there is no reason to believe it won’t happen.
