With only a single game remaining in the regular season, as of press time Monday, the playoff picture is taking shape for several of the area’s teams.

In Class 5A competition, the East Central Hornets of 28-5A will finish in second place behind the Lady Knights of Steele High School. The Hornets (7-2) were scheduled to face the Corpus Christi King Lady Mustangs (3-6) in the final regular season match of the year. It is the team’s last chance to prep for what will certainly be stiff competition in Class 5A. The Hornets will face either Taft, Brandeis, or Warren in the first round of the playoffs.

Over in Class 4A, the Floresville Jaguars were in sole ownership of first place, but stumbled last Friday against Medina Valley, and find themselves in a four-way tie for first heading into the final match of the regular season. The Jags, along with Harlandale, Medina Valley, and Uvalde were all sitting at 10-3 in district play.

Floresville was scheduled to face Harlandale in the final regular season match, assuring the tie will be broken between those two teams. Medina Valley was scheduled to face Kennedy, and Uvalde was slated to host Southside. With wins likely for Medina Valley and Uvalde, the Jags need a win over Harlandale to keep their hopes for a share in the district title alive.

With one game to play, the Lady Bears find themselves in control of District 28-3A and have the title locked up. La Vernia is unbeaten at 9-0, while Somerset holds down the No. 2 spot at 7-2. The Lady Bears were scheduled to close out the regular season against fourth-place Sam Houston, and will then begin playoff competition.

Down in Class 2A, things are tight as always, as District 28-2A remains one of the strongest in the state. As of press time, the Poth Pirettes find themselves in a tie for first with Schulenburg. The teams each won a match over the other, and are unbeaten otherwise. At 10-1, the final match of the district schedule is paramount to each team. While the Pirettes will have to beat 8-3 Hallettsville to close out the year, Schulenburg will host 3-8 Nixon-Smiley. Assuming that both Poth and Schulenburg win, a tiebreaker will determine the playoff seeding. The teams could opt to play for it, or to flip a coin.

The other 2A teams from the area are Stockdale and Nixon-Smiley. While the Lady Mustangs will miss the playoffs at 3-8 in district play, the Lady Brahmas find themselves solidly in fourth place. In previous years, only the top three teams from each district have advanced to the playoffs. New for this year, however, is a rule change that sends the top four teams from each district into the postseason. With one match left on the schedule, the Lady Brahmas sit at 5-6 in the district, two wins ahead of Karnes City and Nixon-Smiley.

Playoff pairings and match results will be posted online at www.wilsoncountynews.com.
