High school volleyball

Arlington High didn't have the best district showing this season among the Arlington school district teams, but it did advance one round in the postseason further than district rivals Lamar and Martin, winning its bi-district game last Monday against Midland.

The Lady Colts dropped their first two sets in hard-fought fashion, 26-25 and 25-22, before dominating Midland in sets three and four, 25-11 and 25-14. The deciding set was another close one, with Arlington winning 15-12.

On Saturday, the Lady Colts lost their area-round game to Amarillo in three straight sets to end the season.

Lamar and Martin lost in the bi-district round, but each managed to claim a set from its opponent. Lamar lost 3-1 to San Angelo Central, and Martin lost 3-1 to Abilene.
