For the second year in a row the Fillies ran into number one ranked Bushland and saw their season end.
The Lady Falcons started fast in every set and handed the Fillies a 25-10, 25-10, 25-11 thrashing in a match held on the campus of Lubbock Cooper.
Bushland started off with a quick 3-0 before Marley Jordan recorded the first of her five match kills to end the streak. But that was only a mild bump in the road as the Lady Falcons regained the serve and upped their lead to 11-6. And that lead soon grew to 19-8 and eventually the 25-10 final first set score.

The Fillies showed a little bit energy in the third set exchanging points and were tied at 3-3. But just like the previous two sets Bushland kept the heat on building a 19-6 lead that was soon 23-8. The Fillies tried a comeback, but it was a case of too little too late as Bushland closed out the set and the match 25-11.

Bushland continued their dominance at the Regional tournament last weekend as they
