Eastlake, Canutillo close out high school volleyball regular seasons with wins

High School Sports

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — While Franklin (District 1-6A), Burges (District 1-5A) and El Dorado (District 2-5A) have already wrapped up district championships, there was much to be decided in terms of playoff seeding on the final night of the high school volleyball regular season.

In District 1-6A, Eastlake took down Coronado in five sets (20-25, 27-25, 25-22, 16-25, 15-10) to improve to 28-11 (11-3) on the season. The wins moves the Falcons into a tie with the Thunderbirds who are also 11-3 in district play. Eastlake and Coronado will either play a one-match playoff later this week or flip a coin to determine the No. 2 seed out of the district, which also includes a home playoff match.

Meanwhile, in District 2-5A, the playoff scenarios are even crazier. Canutillo swept Ysleta (25-15, 25-11, 25-16) to move into a three-way tie for second placed with the Indians and Hanks. All three teams are 10-4 in district play.

The Bi-District playoffs begin next week across the state of Texas.
