Comments: Tuesday night volleyball at its finest tonight as the cougars of Jewett Leon travel to Iola in a gargantuan Class 2A contest that is quite possibly the first of three meetings between the two powerhouses. Tradition rich programs with enthusiastic fans, well coached and always prepared, should be a competitive night in Iola. Another team I inadvertently missed on record is Normangee who is 27-7 and has a tournament win over Leon in the brutally tough Class 2A.
Tatum is 5-0 and 30-6 with four losses to larger schools and two to always tough White Oak. 1A Chester went 3-0 beating Apple Springs 4, 18, 9 then Good Samaritan 14, 11, 18 and finally Burkeville 10, 6, 15. Prosper swept Braswell 21, 16, 17 as Ayden Ames had 15 kills with nine 9 digs while Hannah Beauford added seven kills and served three aces with 19 assists. Callie Kieffer chipped in 18 assists and five digs in the win.
On the court, Plano West has won 19 straight matches, Tops in Class 6A, one ahead of Arlington Martin. Plano West is unbeaten and has not lost a set in district play. Following Plano west and Martin with active win streaks in Class 6A are Cypress Ranch with 15, Prosper with 12, Los Fresnos with 12. Five schools are tied with ten straight wins: San Antonio O’Connor, Deer Park, Waxahachie, San Antonio Reagan, and Weatherford.

Frisco Wakeland is third with ten straight wins while Leander Rouse beat Liberty Hill in four sets for their ten straight win and Canyon Randall made it three tied with their tenth straight win. El Paso, Galena park and Austin McCallum had won nine straight each.
Celina was the final unbeaten team to fall as the Class 4A Bobcats fell to surging 3A Gunter in a non-district contest. Pleasanton claims the top win streak in Class 4A with 32 straight wins while Godley is second with 14 and Port Lavaca Calhoun has 13 wins with Bellville at ten and the threesome of Graham, Floresville and Giddings tied at nine wins in a row. Class 3A has been a brutal competition as most of the schools pay up[ in class and win records show the coemption level. Holliday has the current longest win streak at 21 matches with a 5-0 district mark followed by Columbus and Bushland at 14 wins with Lyford’s nine straight the next longest.
Valley Mills leads Class 2A unbeaten streaks with 23 while Normangee and Iola are tied for second with 16 straight wins, the only three Class 2A tmeas with double digit streaks. Class 1A is truly the conundrum of win streaks. Top ranked Fayetteville and second ranked Blum both lost once ;last week. Of cpours3 Fayetteville lost to Class 2A top ten Thrall, the state runner-up a year ago while Blum lost to 4A state ranked Stephenville. Rochelle has 15 straight wins while Chester with six wins is second in Class 1A win streaks.
