Westwood libero Monica Wilson

Westwood High School libero Monica Wilson (12) digs up the ball while teammate Makenzie Nettles (5) and head coach Sidnee Jo Fitzpatrick watch during Tuesday's District 20-3A match at Westwood. Groesbeck topped Westwood in four games. 

Westwood suffered a four-set loss at home to 20-3A rival Groesbeck by scores of 24-26, 27-25, 25-21, 25-15.

Libero Monica Wilson had 37 of the Lady Panthers' 66 digs; but, it proved to be all for naught as the Lady Goats found ways to win the final three sets.

Jordan Carter had 15 kills and Shamaya Downie 12; however, the Lady Panthers committed 29 attack errors and recorded a paltry .053 hitting percentage. Carter also had five solo ace blocks, and Downie recorded four ace serves for Westwood (23-12).

Elkhart d. Crockett

CROCKETT — Madison Crader had 10 kills and a .290 attack percentage as the Elkhart High School volleyball team swept Crockett in District 20-3A by scores of 25-18, 25-12, 25-22.

Brandi Cain added four kills and Rylee Reeves three for the Lady Elks (15-18).

Fairfield d. Palestine

FAIRFIELD — Fairfield simply had too much firepower for Palestine in District 19-4A on Tuesday as the Lady Eagles swept the LadyCats by scores of 25-17, 25-19, 25-9.

Shayla Arthur put down eight kills and hit .200 for Palestine (13-19). Destiny Mathews added six kills. Gabby Moore and Ka'Zem Wood had 13 of the LadyCats' 24 digs. Wood also dished off 11 assists.

Grapeland d. Oakwood

OAKWOOD — Neci Keefer and Essence Watkins combined for 18 kills and 13 solo ace blocks; but, it wasn't enough as Grapeland defeated the Lady Panthers 25-18, 26-24, 25-17.

Rachell Rodgers added five kills and nine digs. Kaeley Bean and Janet Velasquez teamed up for 23 assists. Neci Keefer also scooped up a team-best 12 digs and Avery Hardin had 11.

Oakwood dropped to 5-25 while Grapeland stands at 16-15.

Frankston (4-23) was the lone team from the Pine Empire off on Tuesday, as part of the 20-3A schedule rotation.
