History was made Oct. 16 when the Dripping Springs Tigers volleyball team secured a school-record seventh straight district title by virtue of a straight set win over the Lockhart Lions.
That win, along with a straight set victory over McCallum Oct. 19, extended the program’s district win streak to 75 matches, which dates back to the 2013 season. Dripping Springs’ last district loss came at the hands of Cedar Park on Oct. 8, 2013. The Tigers closed the 2018 regular season against Reagan Oct. 23.
So far this season, Dripping Springs has not dropped a set during the course of district play. The last time the Tigers dropped a set during district play was in a five set regular season win over Kerrville Tivy on Sept. 22, 2017.
Tiger junior Mackenzie Murray anchored the wins over Lockhart and McCallum with 30 combined kills, with Alexis Haydt providing 16 kills in both matches.
The Tigers now prepare for the postseason, which will pit them against the fourth place team in 26-5A.
Dripping Springs is slated to take on Kerrville Tivy in the bidistrict round of the playoffs. A date, time and place for the match has not yet been determined.
