Volleyball season ends in bi-district round

The Wills Point Lady Tigers have been no stranger to overcoming the odds in bi-district round play, having bounced highly regarded teams including the Paris Lady Cats (in both 2012 and 2013) and Kaufman Lady Lions (in 2014) to reach the Area round of the playoffs.

The Lady Tigers had the opportunity to add another team to the growing list Nov. 1, taking on a Paris North Lamar team that entered the postseason with a sterling 30-6 record overall this season and a 14th place ranking among all 4A teams in the state according to the most recent Texas Girls Coaches Association Weekly Poll.

Despite some gritty play, Wills Point could not get over the hump against the Lady Panthers, falling in three sets.

The Lady Tigers struggled early against North Lamar, falling behind quickly and never quite recovering to drop the first set 25-10.
