It all came down to the last match of the regular season on Tuesday, Oct. 24 to determine the District 9-6A volleyball champion in a match featuring Wylie East at Sachse.

Both teams had been playing consistently good volleyball the entire year and the Lady Mustangs were looking for a sweep of the Lady Raiders.

Sachse won the previous meeting at Wylie East on Sept. 22 by a score of 3-1 (25-15, 20-25, 25-23, 25-23).

Each team had just one district loss going into the match.

The second meeting was much the same, going four sets and having the same outcome, a 3-1 (12-25, 25-16, 18-25, 23-25) win for Sachse.

The win gave the Lady Mustangs their 11th consecutive district championship.

Sachse will focus on their playoff run, taking on Mesquite Horn at North Forney at 7:15 p.m. Monday, October 30. Horn finished fourth in District 10-6A with a record of 18-13 overall and 7-4 in the district, well behind first place Rockwall (27-9, 11-0).
