The Keller ISD volleyball teams got the season underway last week in a big way, with plenty of games on the schedule.
After opening the regular season on Tuesday last week, all four teams were busy with tournaments over the weekend and will continue to the torrid pace prior to starting their district schedule on Sept. 12.
The Indians (4-3) now come back and take on L.D. Bell on Tuesday before heading north to play in the Northwest ISD Tournament. They will be back at home to play Highland Park on Tuesday, Aug. 26.

The Lady Falcons were to play at Saginaw Chisholm Trail on Tuesday before playing in the Northwest ISD Tournament this weekend. After a match against Trimble Tech on Tuesday, they’ll play another tournament at the Arlington ISD tourney the following weekend.
With a start of a 30th seed, the Lady Panthers finished in a tie for seventh overall when the dust cleared.
In Saturday’s championship round, the Lady Panthers lost a tough, three-game match to El Paso Franklin and then another close two-game matchup with Arlington Lamar.
“We played hard and the team came together despite playing without our starting setter on Thursday and part of Saturday due to injury,” said head coach Jennifer Chandler.
It was a tiring eight games (five wins, three losses) for Fossil Ridge, but like most teams at this stage of the season, the game experience is highly appreciated.
