Saturday’s Class 2A area volleyball playoff against Milano was sweet revenge for the No. 6 ranked Wortham Lady Bulldogs, returning the favor after being swept in the regional quarterfinals last year by the Lady Eagles, sweeping them this time, 25-15, 25-15, 25-20.
The win moves Wortham (30-13) to the regional quarterfinals against the No. 1 ranked Crawford Lady Pirates (41-7), winners over Thorndale on Thursday, 25-14, 25-19, 25-8. The regional quarterfinal was scheduled for Monday (Nov. 6) and results from the playoff match will be available in a future edition of The Mexia News.
Saturday’s match started on a good note as Kayla Lansford recorded the first point for Wortham with a convincing kill shot at the net. The Lady Bulldogs sprinted out to an 8-0 lead before the Lady Eagles could score a point.
