Lady Farmers win district title

by | Oct 25, 2022 | Sports

The Lady Farmers are district champions once again, sweeping their final two opponents.

Currently ranked No. 3 in Class 4A by the Texas Girls Coaches Association, Farmersville (11-1, 40-2) clinched the district championship with a 3-0 (25-7, 25-19, 25-10) win over Quinlan Ford on Tuesday night. The Lady Farmers took advantage of several Lady Panther errors, including 13 attacking errors and seven service errors in the game.

Head coach Harold Davis was proud of his team and the accomplishments they made this season.

“The girls set a goal this offseason of what they wanted to accomplish, and they went and did it,” Davis said. “We had such a tough challenge of trying to replace eight seniors from last year’s team but managed to not miss a beat and I think they’ve gotten better at the right time.”

Along with replacing several key players from last season, Farmersville had a tough district to contend with in 2022, as Sunnyvale, Kaufman and Community all showed tough games in the year. The Lady Farmers wrapped up district play with a 3-1 (25-22, 17-25, 25-16, 25-18) win over Kaufman Friday night, their 40th win of the season.

“We knew some of those teams would be better because they were so young the season before,” Davis said. “It’s a tough challenge for us, with all of the success we’ve been fortunate to have it puts a target on our back. We had so many younger players who had to learn what it was like to play for the Farmersville volleyball team. You’re going to see a lot of team’s best shot because we’re the game they circle on the schedule.”

This marks the sixth consecutive district title for the Lady Farmers, continuing an unprecedented run of success for the volleyball program. It’s also the third season in the last four years that Farmersville won 40 district games, with only the COVID-19 shortened season stopping that streak.

“I was just impressed with how well everyone has played this season,” Davis said. “We needed to replace our setters from last year and Sophia stepped up. We’ve had key players at every spot make an impact and I like the options we have at the net. It’s not always on Angie [Lee] to make a big play for us, we have Rendi, Baylee and Bella who can all step up.”

Up next for Farmersville is the playoffs. The Lady Farmers reached the third round of the postseason last year before losing to Van and hope to improve on that mark and potentially compete for a state title.

“This is what the girls wanted,” Davis said. “They wanted to be in this position to try and compete and win a state championship and we’re at that point now. I think our district being more competitive this season will help because it forced us to play our best volleyball throughout the season and we should be prepared for anything heading into the tournament.”

Farmersville’s playoff game will be announced later.
