The 2015 volleyball season came to an abrupt end for Heritage School’s varsity girls’ team, Thursday, when the Lady Eagles dropped a bi-district playoff match at Juan Diego Academy in Mission in three games.
After losing the opening set 16-25, Heritage suffered losses in the next two contests, 12-25 and 13-25.
The Lady Eagles (7-3 in league play) had been leading their district standings until the final two regular season matches.
They dropped a four-game decision at Seguin Lifegate (20-25, 25-20, 12-25, 23-25) on Oct. 20 before succumbing to Bulverde Living Rock (18-25, 20-25, 30-28, 23-25) two nights later.
Those two league setbacks “brought us from first place to third place,” said Heritage head coach Carol Bell.
Although last year’s team had advanced to the TAPPS 1A state semifinals before losing out, Bell and her troops did prevail in one of their goals for 2015.
