FISD Volleyball Teams Advance in the Playoffs

Nov 03, 2021

Update November 3:

The Reedy and Wakeland volleyball teams advanced to the second round of the UIL 5A playoffs on Tuesday with three-game sweeps of their opponents. Reedy beat The Colony and Wakeland beat Wylie East.

The season ended for Heritage and Independence, which each battled a District 10-5A co-champion on Tuesday. Heritage lost to defending 5A state champion Lovejoy in three sets and Independence nearly knocked off one of the state's top-ranked teams, McKinney North. After losing the first two sets, Independence won the next two to force a deciding fifth set. McKinney North won that set 15-11.

Second-round matches will be played either Thursday or Friday (Nov. 4 or 5).


Original Story: 

Led by District 9-5A champion Reedy, Frisco ISD’s four volleyball playoff qualifiers begin postseason play on Tuesday. The top four seeds from 9-5A (Reedy, Wakeland, Heritage and Independence) will play the top four seeds from 10-5A (McKinney North, Lovejoy, Wylie East and The Colony).

District seeding for FISD teams was finalized Friday when Wakeland defeated Heritage in a tiebreaker for second place. The 9-5A seeds from one to four are Reedy, Wakeland, Heritage and Independence.

All matches on Tuesday (Nov. 2)

Reedy v. The Colony
6:30 p.m. at Hebron HS

Heritage v. Lovejoy

The first round of the playoffs will match two of the state’s toughest volleyball districts.
