With more than a month still left in the regular season, Highland Park has put itself in the driver’s seat for a District 15-5A title.
After all, the Lady Scots haven’t dropped a set thus far in league play, let alone a match. And their ability to take three hard-fought sets from defending Class 5A state champion Lovejoy on Sept. 16 puts HP in control — at least for now.
The Lady Scots put away Lovejoy by scores of 25-23, 26-24, 25-22, then swept Mesquite Poteet on the road in much easier fashion on Tuesday. They haven’t dropped a set in any of their past seven matches overall.
HP will travel to North Forney on Friday before returning home to play Forney on Sept. 27. And for those wondering about the Lovejoy rematch, the Lady Leopards will host it on Oct. 11.
