While the Aledo varsity football took care of business on the field and costumed children trick-or-treated from trunk to trunk in the parking lot, Aledo’s volleyball teams treated themselves to crucial wins over Western Hills.

With only three district games remaining, the varsity Lady Cats beat the Cougars in three dominating sets Friday.

"I thought they played well," Coach Kathy Goings said. "They stayed intense."

The Lady Cats won their sets 25-6, 25-7 and 25-8.

Despite never letting their opponents reach double digits in scoring, Goings said the team remained focused and did not commit any errors.

With the win, Aledo remains tied with Granbury atop the district.

Aledo and Granbury split the season against each other, each winning at home.

If they are still tied at the end of the season, the teams would either play a tie-breaker or flip to see who would move on.

But first the Lady Cats have to face three more opponents, wrapping up in Decatur on Oct. 29.

"We’re ready to wrap this district up so we can get to the playoffs," Goings said.

Aledo’s junior varsity and freshman A team also played, each winning in two sets.

The JV team beat the Cougars 25-4 and 25-5, taking advantage of long stretches of unanswered points such as a 14-0 run in the first set after starting off 2-2.

Coach Mandy Overturff says she has been pleasantly surprised by the team this season despite hitting some rough spots.

"Our team has meshed really well this year," Overturff said.

The coach said she was proud of the Lady Cats for keeping their composure during the game against the Cougars despite the wide margins of victory.

"I think our girls played really well," Overturff said.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, members of the teams warmed up in pink shirts and many wore the emblem of breast cancer awareness on their cheek.
