Panthers lead league with a week left to play

The match of the year in the District 29-5A volleyball went to the Medina Valley Panthers.

The Panthers hosted Somerset on Friday, Oct. 17, needing five extra-close sets to prevail over the Lady Bulldogs, 23-25, 25-22, 25-23, 20-25, 16-14.

The win lifted the Panthers (25-8 season, 11-1 district) into the league’s top spot heading into the final week of play. A Tuesday evening win over Laredo Cigarroa, 25-14, 25-22, 25-13, kept them atop the rankings.

This week, the Panthers will close out the regular season at Southside on Friday, Oct. 24, at 6 p.m., then on the road at Eagle Pass Winn on Tuesday, Oct. 28. Panther victories in both matches would clinch an outright district championship.

In the match with Somerset, Ashley Persyn led the Panthers with 27 kills, while Lauren Sotelo had 10 and Katelyn Holzhaus recorded nine.

Savannah Schmidt led the team with 31 assists, with 13 from Sotelo.

Persyn and Holzhaus both had three aces.

Hannah Groff led the Panthers with 13 digs, with 10 from Persyn and nine each from Schmidt, Sotelo and Holzhaus.

At home against Cigarroa, Persyn had 22 kills and eight digs, while Schmidt had 29 assists and two aces.
