Next weekend, Aug. 19-21, the Lady Panthers will play in the annual Eustace Lady Bulldog Invitational tournament, and then will stay on the road Tuesday, Aug. 24, when they visit Greenville for a dual match with the hosting Lady Lions and Rockwall Heath.
In the evening’s opening match against Corsicana, the Lady Panthers struggled with rust and unforced errors early on, but settled down to win 29-27, 25-16 and 25-22.
Against Wills Point, unforced errors on both sides of the net led to a couple of very close games, as the Lady Panthers won the first two by identical 25-22 scores.
The Lady Tigers rallied to win the third game 25-15 to force a deciding fourth game, which Mabank won 25-19.
In sub-varsity action, both Mabank’s freshman and junior varsity squads defeated Corsicana, but lost to Wills Point.
