The regular season may be over for area teams, but there’s still plenty to be settled before the playoffs begin next week.

Phone calls, tiebreakers and coin flips were made on Wednesday as teams tried to figure out postseason seeding.

Keller Central defeated Weatherford in five sets, helping sister school Keller, which won, force a first-place tie and a co-district championship in 3-6A.

Lauren Cox had a team-high 18 kills for Central. Faith Davis had 17 kills and 16 digs, and Jaycie Fuller added 23 digs. Lauryn Davis recorded 48 assists and 12 digs.

The Chargers (32-9) locked up the No. 3 seed with Keller’s win, and will play Arlington Maritn (26-10) on Tuesday 7:15 p.m. at L.D. Bell High School.

As for Weatherford (33-4) and Keller (27-15), the two will decide the No. 1 seed on Friday 6:30 p.m. at Haslet Eaton. The winner will get Arlington while the loser gets Arlington Lamar.

District cluster

District 5-6A has only one seed determined in Trophy Club Nelson at No. 3 while five other teams get to spend the weekend figuring things out.

Southlake Carroll (38-6) and Hebron (39-5) shared the district title and will play for the No. 1 seed on Friday 6 p.m. at Coppell.

Euless Trinity, Flower Mound and Marcus will battle for the final spot and a date with 6-6A champ Allen in the first round. Trinity plays Marcus Friday 7 p.m. at Byron Nelson. The winner will play Flower Mound Saturday 4 p.m. at Nelson.

Class 5A

Aledo (36-8) is the No. 1 seed in 6-5A and Boswell (30-9) will be No. 2 after the two shared the district title. Aledo will play Denison while Boswell faces off with Denton.

After Fort Worth Western Hills defeated Trimble Tech in five sets, the two must play once more to determine the No. 2 seed in 7-5A. Their game will be Friday 6 p.m. at Western Hills. The winner will get Richland out of 8-5A while the loser gets Grapevine.

Birdville swept Richland to force a tie at third. The two flipped on Wednesday with Richland coming away with the No. 3 seed. Birdville will play 7-5A champ Arlington Heights in bi-district.

Granbury (33-14) and Cleburne (25-16) shared the 9-5A title. On Wednesday, Granbury became the No. 1 seed with Cleburne at No. 2. In 10-5A, bi-district opponents Midlothian and Red Oak were tied for third after Midlothian beat Red Oak in four sets. The Panthers lost fewer sets in district play, therefore get Cleburne. Red Oak will play Granbury.

Class 4A

Kennedale (23-17) and Springtown shared the 7-4A title and will play for the No. 1 seed on Friday 5 p.m. at Lake Worth. District 8-5A opponents Godley and Midlothian Heritage will play for No. 3 and 4 seeds on Friday 5 p.m. at Venus.
