Eight Deep East Texas Volleyball Teams Advance to the Area Round
This Friday will mark the last game of the regular season for most high school football teams across East Texas. Some teams have locked their place in the upcoming playoffs, while others are fighting to make it into the postseason.
Don't Overlook Volleyball
High school volleyball is already moving into the 2nd round of their playoffs. The postseason was tough for the Lufkin Panthers. The district champs fell in the bi-district round to Texas High in four games. Meanwhile, all four playoff teams from District 18-4A fell in the first round.
So, that leaves teams from the 3A classification and below to represent Deep East Texas in the area round. Here's a shout-out to those bi-district champions including Central Heights, Diboll (who survived a nail-biting 5-game battle to advance), Garrison, Latexo, Lovelady, Timpson, Chester, and Goodrich.
Here's the scheduled for the upcoming area round of the playoffs:
CLASS 3A - REGION III
