As we move into the latter half of September, several of the area’s volleyball teams are transitioning to the district portion of their schedules.

While East Central and La Vernia don’t begin district competition until the 27th of this month, Floresville, Poth, Stockdale, and Nixon-Smiley all began district play last Friday.

In Class 4A, the Floresville Jaguars won a non-district match in La Vernia, before returning home to host the Lady Rockets of Kennedy in their first district match. While the La Vernia Lady Bears made a match of it, and forced the Jags into a five-game match, Kennedy put up little in the way of resistance. The Jaguars won 25-10, 25-13, 25-12 last Friday, and helped turn the gym lights out early in Floresville. Sarina Thompson led the offensive effort with seven kills, followed closely by Kristyn Coldewey and Rebecca Jordan with another six kills apiece. Floresville ended the week one win above .500, and has a 1-0 start to the district season, the only one that really matters.

In Class 2A, the Pirettes have been a bit off their game in Poth, and started the week with a five-game loss to La Vernia. The Pirettes kept it close and pushed two games into “extra points,” but fell 3-2 on the road. The team looked for some redemption as it began district play against Nixon-Smiley Sept. 13, and had no trouble with the Lady Mustangs en route to a 25-11, 25-11, 25-10 victory.

Alyssa Kallies led the Poth attack with nine kills in the short match, followed by Madison Caloss with seven kills, and Devon Dylla with five. Amanda Wauters is getting back into the flow of things following her injury absence, and she tallied 15 assists on the night. Alyssa Kruse added another 13 assists on the night, and threw in four service aces for good measure. Kallies and Shelby Yanta led the defensive efforts with seven digs and six digs, respectively, and Kruse and Caloss were good for another five each.

While the Pirettes stand at an unfamiliar season mark of 11-20, what matters most is that they are now 1-0 in district play. Poth was scheduled to host Luling Sept. 17, and will travel to Schulenburg this Saturday, Sept. 21, to face the Shorthorns.

Playing in the same district, Stockdale has been making adjustments under new Head Coach Katy Wiatrek. The team has shown the ability to fight past adversity and pick up the wins, but has also struggled at times.

The Lady Brahmas picked up a big road win in Lytle last Tuesday, knocking off the Lady Pirates, 24-26, 25-16, 25-21, 25-20. Keana Savage was impressive with 17 kills in the match, and Lauren Donsbach kept things moving with 19 assists.

The road trip then continued on Sept. 13, as the Lady Brahmas traveled to Hallettsville for their first district match of the season. Stockdale picked up a win in the third game, but lost the match, 25-13, 25-18, 20-25, 25-12. Savage was again the team’s leader in kills with 10, while also pulling up 17 digs.

Stockdale will continue its district schedule from here out, with a pair of matches at home this week. The Lady Brahmas were scheduled to host Schulenburg Sept. 17, and will be back at home against Nixon-Smiley on Friday, Sept. 20. From there, Stockdale will face Poth and Luling, before challenging Karnes City in the final match of the first round of district play.

The Lady Mustangs play in the same district as Poth and Stockdale, but are certainly being challenged this year. New Head Coach Kim Payne is working to elevate the team’s play, but adjustments take time. The Lady Mustangs fell to the Poth Pirettes last Friday evening, and will be in Stockdale this Friday, Sept. 20, as they search for that first district win of the year.
