PCA volleyball falls to Bishop Lynch in state finals
The Bishop Lynch volleyball team got the last laugh over Prestonwood Christian Academy.
Meeting for the third time this season, the Lady Lions fell shy in their bid for a fourth TAPPS State Championship, falling to the Lady Friars in three sets (25-14, 25-16, 25-19) Saturday in the TAPPS State Finals at the Blossom Athletic Center in San Antonio.
The match marked Prestonwood's first appearance in the finals since 2005, which capped a run of three state championships from 2003-05. Saturday's return proved unceremonious against Lynch, a district foe with whom the Lady Lions split the regular-season series.
The Lady Friars bested Prestonwood on Sept. 25, 3-0, before the Lady Lions returned the favor with a 3-0 sweep on Oct. 18. The losses marked each team's only setbacks during district play.
