Maddy Ainsley swings for a kill in action last week.


Owls drop 2 in district

Two losses in the past week have served to end Hondo’s hopes of reaching the volleyball postseason.

The Owls lost in straight sets at Fredericksburg on Friday, Oct. 17, and at home to Devine on Tuesday, Oct. 21, to fall to 1-7 in the District 29-AAAA race with two matches left to play. Also on Friday, Bandera knocked off Devine in five sets to move one game further ahead of Hondo in the standings. Bandera’s win over Lytle on Tuesday evening clinched the final playoff berth from the district.

Fredericksburg clinched the district championship Tuesday with a five-set win at Boerne.

The Owls visit Bandera on Friday, Oct. 24, for a 4:30 p.m. match, and will return home to conclude the season on Tuesday, Oct. 28, in a 7 p.m. match against Lytle in the Activities Center.

In the match at Fredericksburg, the Owls’ only leads came at the very beginning of the first and third sets, as the Billies, who entered play on Tuesday in the district lead, dominated from wire to wire, 25-16, 26-10, 25-12.

Tuesday at Devine, the Arabians built good-sized leads in the first two sets. They coasted to the win in the first set, then held off a late Hondo rally in the second. The third set stayed close, with the Owls leading by two points on several occasions, until Devine hit a three-point service run at 18-18 to pull ahead for good. The final score of the match was a 25-16, 25-17, 25-21 win for the Arabians, who have clinched a playoff spot, and could go in as either the second, third or fourth playoff seed from 29-AAAA.


Owl volleyball’s Pink Out Night next Tuesday

In conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Hondo volleyball team will be holding its Pink Out Night on Tuesday, Oct. 28, when the Owls host Lytle in the final game of the season.

Fans who bought the Pink Out t-shirts are asked to wear them to the game. Or just wear something pink.

After each of the games (start times have been changed to 5 p.m. for the freshmen, 6 p.m. for the JV and 7 p.m. for the varsity) the pink and white game ball from each contest will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to breast cancer research. Last year, the three game balls were auctioned off for a total of more than $4,000.
