SAN ANGELO, TX. — Both the Veribest Lady Falcons and Bronte Lady Longhorns punched their ticket to the Class 1A high school volleyball Regional Tournament Tuesday night with victories in the Regional Quarterfinals.
In Sterling City, the Lady Falcons continued their streak of not dropping a set in the postseason, picking up a straight-set victory over the Lady Devils of Rankin (25-17, 25-11, 25-21).
“I am so proud of how much grit they showed and determination they showed and being relentless and Rankin was as well and I respect that in them and the girls never backed down from that, they just kept bringing it,” said Lady Falcon head coach Denise Richards.
