The Fillies once again started their 2017 season on a strong note winning seven of their first 10 matches.

After opening at home with an impressive 20-25; 25-10; 25-19; 25-17 against Sweetwater they traveled to powerhouse Lubbock Cooper where they dropped a 22-25; 20-25; 12-25 straight set loss to the Lady Pirates.

The following weekend they were involved in the Shallowater tournament where they finished second in pool play behind Friona and were third in bracket play. They opened pool play with a 25-15; 29-31; 25-23 win over Lubbock Christian followed by a 25-18; 25-10 win over county rival Plains. In their third match, they dropped a close 25-21; 19-25; 22-25 decision to a much-improved Friona team.

Finishing in second place pitted them against host Shallowater, who was the winner of their pool play. In an exciting down to the wire match they defeated the host team 25-23; 19-25; 26-24. In the semi-finals, they were defeated by Lubbock All Saints 25-23; 22-25; 20-25.
