Wrapping up its out of district schedule, the Lewisville High School volleyball team split two matches, and will enter district play with a record of 8-12.
The Lady Farmers defeated Lake Dallas last Friday 3-2 (25-22, 23-25, 20-25, 25-23, 21-19). After falling behind 2-1, the Lady Farmers had to win the final two games of the match to get the win. Setter Ryleigh Taylor led the Farmers with 52 assists, to go along with 20 digs. Defensive specialist Jaya Contee had 32 digs, and middle blocker Christina Cowsert had 21 kills plus 3 blocks and a pair of aces.
Tuesday’s matchup with Red Oak high school (22-3) saw the Lady Farmers get swept in a 3-game-set (17-25, 15-25, 16-25). Defensive Specialist Rachel Barnett led the farmers with 11 kills. Setter Ryleigh Taylor had 18 assists, 8 digs and 3 kills.
The Farmers’ eight out-of-conference wins entering district play more than doubles the three it won last year. The early success of the Farmers season so far looks promising for a team hoping to avoid another season near the bottom of the district 5-6A standings.
The Lady Farmers will open up district play Friday, with a tough matchup against nationally ranked Hebron High School. The Lady Farmers were defeated in both matchups with Hebron last year. The game will be at 6:30 p.m. at Hebron High School.
