Ladyhorns prep for playoffs

Harper gets bi-district bye before area round tilt

The Harper Ladyhorns ended the volleyball regular season with a good dose of momentum as they defeated Leakey 25-18, 25-21, 25-17 in the final scheduled match, then bested host D'Hanis in a warm-up contest in five close games — 25-19, 19-25, 25-22, 22-25, 15-11.

Harper finished as District 27-2A's champion having compiled a perfect 10-0 league mark, the sixth consecutive title season for the Ladyhorns.

They also registered a 29-7 record for the overall season.

Harper now earns a bye in the first round of the UIL-Region IV playoffs, which commence early in November.
