The Scurry-Rosser Wildcat volleyball team wrapped up its season with a bi-district title in hand and a 32-7 overall record.
After smashing through the district round of competition without losing a single set, the Wildcats advanced to the bi-district round of the postseason where they stomped Rio Vista in another 3-0 blowout. But the Wildcats finally met their match against the Troy Trojans in the area round.
The teams were extremely competitive for five sets, trading wins back and forth. Troy got off to the early lead with a 25-21 win in set one, but the Wildcats fought back in set 2 to take it 25-23. Troy answered in the third with a 25-20 win and forced the Wildcats to fight hard to stay in it in an intense match that ultimately ended in favor of Scurry-Rosser 30-28. Finally, the Trojans claimed the final set and the game with a 15-12 win over the Wildcats, putting an end to a league-defining season.
