Panthers Claim District Champion and Bi-District Title
Wednesday, November 7, 2007 • Posted November 6, 2007

The Blanco Volleyball team traveled to Stockdale Thursday night to take on Rice Consolidated in a Region IV Area playoff match. The Panthers were minus a starter most of the game due to injury (Mackenzie Ray). The Rice Lady Raiders took advantage with a barrage of hits and huge blocks. Rice had five ladies of 6' tall plus, all of which could block and hit very well. The Lady Panthers gave a great effort in the third game keeping it close most of the way but ultimately falling in three games.

The Lady Panthers end the season 17-18 but most importantly they are 2007 District Champions ending district with only 1 loss. Blanco also claimed the title of Bi-District champions.
