Arabians continue winning in District

Beating Hondo is always a great highlight of a season but beating them in district play makes the win all the sweeter. The Varsity Arabians shut the Owls down in three sets with scores of 25-21, 25-20, and 25-17. This makes the Arabians 2-0 in district and 16-14 overall. October 5th, the Arabians will play Pearsall at home with games starting with the Varsity at 5 pm and the JV and freshman starting at 6 pm.
“This is one of the best games we have played all year! The girls were intense and aggressive the whole game. It is nice to have the rivalry game back in district. Now we have a big game Tuesday night (October 2nd) down in Crystal City. Both teams were going 2-0 in district.” Coach Leigh Anne McIver
