Farmersville will face pair of tough challenges this week in District 10-3A volleyball competition.

“These next two matches are big. It will decide who has the upper hand going into the second round of district,” head coach Harold Davis said. “Leonard and Commerce have very good teams, so we will have to play our best in order to win.”

Second half contests are with Whitewright (6 p.m. Oct. 3), at Van Alstyne (6 p.m. Oct. 10) and Lone Oak (4:30 p.m. Oct. 13), with Howe (6 p.m. Oct. 17 on Senior Night) and Commerce (4:30 p.m. Oct. 20), and at Leonard (6 p.m. Oct. 24).
