Martin defeated Arlington for the first time in at least three years last Tuesday, said coach Tracy Perez-Peterson, only to suffer a setback Friday to North Crowley. The victory over the Lady Colts put the Lady Warriors in first place before the loss dropped them to 4-2. Meanwhile, Arlington climbed to a 5-1 district record with a 3-0 win against Fort Worth Paschal last Friday.

Also looking to be a likely playoff team is Lamar, which reeled off consecutive victories last week against Weatherford and Sam Houston to rebound from a loss to North Crowley on Sept. 26.

This Friday is Arlington’s turn to visit North Crowley, at 6:30 p.m., while Lamar will host Bowie and Martin visits Sam Houston at the same time.

Arlington defeated North Crowley in their first meeting on Sept. 16. The Lady Colts won a hard-fought first set 25-23 but won the final two more handily, 25-14 and 25-17, on their home court.

See for results.
