Colleyville Heritage (27-11, 13-0) at Grapevine (29-10, 12-1)

CHHS has already locked up a share of the district title in 7-5A, but a win over the rival Mustangs will give them the No. 1 seed for the third-straight year.

It’s senior night for Grapevine, but the Mustangs are also searching for their first win over Colleyville Heritage since 2011.

Symone Wesley can surpass 1,600 career kills. She’s already the school all-time leader in kills and digs.

The Panthers rallied in the first meeting. They dropped the first two games before winning in five.

Red Oak (25-16, 10-1) at Midlothian (24-11, 10-1)

The District 14-5A championship game between the Hawks and Panthers.

Red Oak won the first matchup in four. Hailey Hunt and Katelyn Moore went for 12 and 11 kills while Emily Smith and Carley Rushing each had 13 assists.

The Hawks have won three-straight on the road while the Panthers have won six in a row at home.

Weatherford (37-7, 11-0) at San Angelo Central (31-7, 10-1)

WHS has already locked up a share of the district title for the third-straight season, but the Lady Roos want to take the No. 1 seed heading into next week’s playoffs.

SA Central needs to win to force a tiebreaker scenario.

The Kangaroos won the first meeting 25-13, 25-17, 25-18. Top recruits Carissa Barnes and Londyn Gray recorded 14 and 13 kills. Jordan Burks, who had 14 digs, needs 33 more to reach 1,000 for her career.

The No. 1 seed will get Arlington Lamar in bi-district.

Euless Trinity (4-7) at LD Bell (5-6)

The Trojans will have to win twice just to make the playoffs over their longtime rivals.

Bell swept the first meeting so a Trinity win will force either a coin flip or Game No. 3.

Trinity’s last playoff appearance came in 2015; Bell wins and its in for the first time since 2013.

Corsicana (6-5) at Joshua (6-5)

The winner clinches the No. 3 seed in 14-5A. The loser might be in a tie with Cleburne.

Cleburne is playing University and is 1-1 vs both teams.

Joshua won the first meeting with Corsciana in five including 15-13 in the final game. Reese Rumfield and Kaitlyn Stone each set school records with 34 kills and 63 assists.

Keller (34-9, 10-3) at Carroll (34-9, 9-4)

A win from Keller will clinch No. 2 in 5-6A and a likely first-round matchup with Hebron. Carroll wins and the two teams will have a tiebreaker.

The Indians won the first meeting vs Carroll in five. Carroll had dropped the first two games. Jayden Nembhard recorded 22 kills for Keller while Emmie Riethman had 33 digs. Kate Lang added 49 assists.

Carroll was led by McKenzie Nichols’ 51 assists, Annabelle Smith’s 27 kills and Kendall Gilpin’s 26 digs.

The No. 3 seed will likely get Coppell.

Mansfield (33-13, 10-3) at SGP (21-15, 7-6)

The Tigers need a win or Lake Ridge loss to DeSoto to secure No. 2 in 7-6A.

The Warriors have the same record as Cedar Hill for fourth, but CH owns the tiebreaker. SGP needs a win AND Cedar Hill loss vs Waxahahcie to get into the playoffs.

Mansfield won the first meeting in four.

McKinney (8-3) at McKinney Boyd (5-6)

McKinney is going for second in 9-6A, a game up on Plano West. Boyd needs a win and a Plano loss at Prosper to force a tie for the final playoff spot.

McKinney won the first matchup in four sets.

Aubrey (7-2) at Melissa (7-2); Celina (5-4) at Sanger (7-2)

There’s a three-way tie for first place in 11-4A. Celina has wrapped up the No. 4 spot.

Melissa won a five-game thriller vs Aubrey in the first meeting. Sanger is 1-1 against both teams.

WEDNESDAY Nolan Catholic vs All Saints at Grace Prep

TAPPS play-in game.

All Saints, the defending state champion, picked up a win vs TC-Addison on Thursday to keep its season alive.

In a five-set classic, the Saints won 21-19 in the final game.

Kelsie Selman recorded a season-high 66 assists while Shannon Dixon added 40 digs. Marissa Neal finished with 24 kills and 21 digs and Ashton Mares had her first career 30-30 game with 32 kills and 32 digs.
