It is what Aledo head volleyball coach Claire Gay calls “the fourth phase” of the season, the playoffs.
The state-ranked No. 11 Aledo Ladycats (32-13), holders of the first seed in District 6-5A, will face District 5-5A’s fourth seed, Denton High School (11-20), in a Class 5A bi-district match..
The first serve will be at 7 p.m. today at Keller Central High School.
The Ladycats are District 6-5A co-champions but were awarded the first seed after a coin flip with co-champion Boswell. Denton had to win a three-team “mini tournament” against Denton Braswell and Denison to claim 5-5A’s fourth seed.
The winner of the match will advance to the area round and face the winner of the Fort Worth Arlington Heights/Birdville bi-district match.
