With just one night of games remaining on the schedule, as of press time, the regular season is just about over for the area’s six volleyball teams. So where do they stand? Let’s take a quick look.

In Class 5A, the East Central Lady Hornets were heading down to the wire. While Corpus Christi Carroll, Steele, and Southwest have all clinched a spot, the fourth and final spot was still up for grabs prior to Tuesday’s games. The Lady Hornets were tied with Corpus Christi King for the fourth and final spot, and as fate would have it, the two teams were scheduled to face each other in the final district game of the season. It seems there was a lot at stake, with the winner moving on to postseason play.

In Class 4A play, the Floresville Jaguars are the runaways in 29-4A. Floresville is sitting all alone in first place, holding a four-game lead over Medina Valley and Harlandale. Even if the Jags were to fall to McCollum in their final game of the season, it would be of little consequence, as Floresville storms into postseason play as the district’s No. 1 seed.

Things get a bit more complicated in Class 3A. The La Vernia Lady Bears are in a tie for first place with Somerset at 8-1 in district play, having split games with the Bulldogs. The good news is that they are in the playoffs. The bad news is that assuming both teams win their final games, the two will have a playoff to determine who gets the No. 1 seed out of District 28-3A, and the first-round bye that goes along with it.

The three remaining teams from the area are Poth, Stockdale, and Nixon-Smiley, and all teams compete as part of District 28-2A. As of press time, the Poth Pirettes were in a tie with Hallettsville for second place in the district. Schulenburg was a game ahead in first. As for Stockdale and Nixon-Smiley, both teams will finish outside of the top three, and outside of the playoff race.

The Pirettes were scheduled to face Hallettsville in the last game of the district schedule. Assuming Schulenburg wins its match, the winner between Poth and Hallettsville will be the No. 2 seed, and the loser will enter the playoffs as No. 3. Given the fact that 28-2A is one of, if not the toughest district in the Region IV, the game is less about seeds, and more about earning a win as the teams head into playoff competition.

Playoff pairings, match locations, and results will be posted on the Wilson County News website as the information becomes available.
