The Lady Panthers finished their district play Oct. 28. The team ended up clinching a playoff spot which hadn’t been done by a Panther volleyball team since 2002. The Lady Panthers were very excited to get the opportunity to play in the playoffs this year.

“I feel that if we all try and give our 100% on the court we are going to be very successful in playoffs,” Senior Vidalla Sanchez said before the playoff game.

The Lady Panthers won both matches against Odessa High and Midland Lee, tied in matches against Midland High and Abilene High, and suffered losses in both matches against San Angelo Central.

“I feel that we were very successful this season. We as a team came together and worked for every point in every game,” Sanchez said.
