Lady Farmers win playoff opener against Brownsboro

by | Oct 30, 2020 | Sports

Playing in front of the Farmersville fans, Farmersville volleyball dominated in their opening game of the 4A state playoffs, sweeping Brownsboro in their bi-district match 25-8, 25-9, 25-8.

Thoughts from coach Harold Davis:

“That was the game we were kind of expecting,” Davis said. “[Brownsboro] were a fourth place team and they were kind of struggling this year to get things going. Our girls stepped up tonight and didn’t play down, which is the big [takeaway]. We stepped up and played at our level instead of dropping to a lower level.

Momentum swing of the match: 9-1 scoring run in the first set

After a slow start in the first set, the Lady Farmers were able to take control of the match over Brownsboro thanks to a 9-1 scoring run to give them an eight point lead. After this point, Farmersville didn’t trail the remainder of the match.

Lady Farmer of the Night: Kylie Self

Playing her final volleyball game at the FHS gym, senior Kylie Self had one of her best games this season. Self was second on the team in kills with 11 along with a block and three digs. 

Impact Stat: 12 serving aces

Throughout their contest against Brownsboro, the Lady Farmers managed to serve aggressively and efficiently, forcing their opponents into mistakes. As a team, Farmersville recorded 12 serving aces compared to only five serving errors, led by Kate Ingram’s four aces.

With the win, the Lady Farmers move on to face Bullard in the area competition Tuesday, Nov. 3. First serve is scheduled for 7 p.m from Wills Point.
