MV, Somerset to battle for league lead Friday

With two more match wins in the books, the stage has been set for a Friday, Oct. 17, showdown between Medina Valley and Somerset for the District 29-5A volleyball lead.

The Panthers kept pace with Somerset -- both are 9-1 in district -- by scoring a straight set win over Laredo Nixon on Friday, Oct. 10, and then winning in four sets at Uvalde on Tuesday, Oct. 14.

The Panthers will host Somerset Friday at 6 p.m., and will be at home again on Tuesday, Oct. 21, against Laredo Cigarroa. After that, the Panthers, who have already clinched a spot in the postseason, will have only two district matches remaining.

Somerset won the first matchup with MV, but since then, Uvalde upset the Lady Bulldogs to create the tie.

Last Friday against Nixon, the Panthers were pushed hard in the first set, but responded to win the match going away, 28-26, 25-9, 25-13. Ashley Persyn led the Panthers with 13 kills and three aces. Katelyn Holzhaus also had three aces, while Savannah Schmidt and Lauren Sotelo were co-leaders in assists with 18 each.

Tuesday, the Panthers dropped the first set to Uvalde, but stormed back to win three straight in decisive fashion, taking the match, 17-25, 25-14, 25-18, 25-14.

Persyn again led MV with 18 kills, to go with four blocks, with 20 assists from Schmidt. Hannah Groff recorded nine digs and three aces.
