Ladyhorn start district run

Harper begins quest for eighth straight championship

Harper carries momentum from strong tournament play into the start of district this week. The Ladyhorns’ varsity volleyball team won four of six matches during the Sonora Tournament on Thursday and Saturday, Sept. 5 and 7, which was good enough to put them in a three-way tie for third place. Harper earned wins against Junction, Brackett and Reagan County during Day 1 and beat Sterling City on Day 2. The team’s two losses came against Sonora and Bandera on Day 2. Senior Gracie Green earned all-tournament honors for her play in Sonora. Harper also lost a nondistrict home match against Hondo in five sets — 25-21, 21-25, 25-27, 25-20, 15-6 — on Tuesday, Sept. 3, in Harper. The Ladyhorns wrapped up non-district play with a match against D’Hanis on Tuesday, Sept. 10, in D’Hanis. Results were not available as of press time. Harper starts its quest for an eighth district championship in a row with a home match against San Antonio Stacey on Friday, Sept. 13, starting at 5 p.m. From there, the Ladyhorns travel to San Antonio to face Lee High School at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17.
