SAN ANTONIO -- For the second time in as many years, the Poth Pirette volleyball team split the district title with Schulenburg, and then lost to the Lady Shorthorns in the Region IV title match.

After picking up bi-district and area wins, the Pirettes began last week with a regional quarterfinal win over Comfort, 25-18, 25-19, and 25-22. Alyssa Kallies led the attack with 15 kills, followed by Devon Dylla with 13. The win advanced the Pirettes to the regional tournament, and put Poth into a match with Goliad.

The match with Goliad was for a regional semifinal, and the Pirettes didn’t skip a beat. Poth picked up a 25-20 win in the first game, and then continued its winning ways with a 25-18 victory in game No. 2. The Pirettes made things look easy in the third game, breezing to a 25-16 victory. Kallies once again led the team in kills with 14, and Shelby Yanta led the defensive effort with 18 digs and 1.5 blocks.

As Poth moved into the Region IV final, the team was once again headed into a match with Schulenburg. The Pirettes and Lady Shorthorns had already met twice this season, splitting their District 28-2A matches to each claim a share of the district title. Having the two teams meet for a third time was really no surprise to anyone, and Poth was hoping for a little revenge from last year.

Schulenburg won the regional crown by beating Poth last year, and the Pirettes were looking to return the favor. Unfortunately for Poth, Schulenburg was too strong on this day, and the Lady Shorthorns won the first game handily at 25-16. The Pirettes made things much closer in the second game, but still fell by the score of 25-21. Pirette Head Coach Patti Zenner refocused her girls for the third game, and Poth stormed back for a 25-18 victory. With a bit of a momentum swing, things were looking up for the Pirettes, but Schulenburg rallied to win the fourth game by the score of 25-17. The victory gave the Lady Shorthorns the Region IV title, and the pass to the state tournament.

Dylla led the Pirette offensive effort against Schulenburg with 11 kills and two service aces. It was the senior’s final volleyball game. Amanda Wauters tallied 21 assists during the match, Alyssa Kruse had 18 digs, and Kallies managed a whopping five blocks at the net.

The Pirettes ended the season with an atypical record of 25-24, but made an 11-1 run through the district to split the crown with Schulenburg. Poth ripped off four straight playoff wins against some of the best teams in the state, but couldn’t find the way to get past Schulenburg once more.

Poth will lose some key talent to graduation, but will return a gifted core group that will undoubtedly make another run at Schulenburg and a region title.
