DODD CITY -- With another Class 1A volleyball postseason already assured, 1A Dodd City strives again this season to also be one of the top teams overall-- in its mostly 2A-composed district.
A home win over 1A Savoy on Sept. 22 equated the Lady Hornets’ third-straight win in 16-2A play to keep Dodd City also in the mix for another district championship.
During the previous week, the Lady Hornets (9-2), who won the title in both years of its prior district alignment en route to the Region II-1A quarterfinals, defeated 2As Wolfe City and Trenton in district play, after 0-2 start in the new 16-2A.
When the postseason starts late next month, it will equate the 26th in the previous 31 years for Dodd City, which ranked No. 8 on Sept. 21 -- and has been as high as No. 5 -- in the Texas Girls Coaches Association combined 2A-1A poll.
