VOLLEYBALL: Burnet clinches playoff spot; Marble Falls loses

BURNET — The Burnet High School volleyball team snapped a two-game losing skid with a two-match winning streak last week.

The Lady Dawgs defeated Llano 25-12, 25-22, 25-20 on Oct. 17 and Lampasas 25-22, 25-22, 25-15 on Oct. 14. They clinched a playoff spot and are tied for second place in District 25-4A with Salado with three matches remaining.

“These kids are fantastic to work with and are extremely coachable,” Burnet head coach Salye Coles said. “They have grown and matured so much this season.”

Coles said this week is crucial for playoff positioning. Burnet is at Taylor on Oct. 21 and at home against Salado on Oct. 24.

“Two wins will place us in outright second,” she said.
