The Wolfforth Frenship volleyball team has yet to lose in District 2-6A play.
Odessa High has yet to win.
The Lady Tigers remained perfect in 2-6A as Frenship defeated Odessa High in straight sets, winning by scores of 25-18, 25-17, 25-18 Friday at OHS Fieldhouse.
With the victory, the Lady Tigers moved to 27-8, 3-0 while the Lady Bronchos fell to 13-9, 0-3.
“I think we’ve done pretty well,” Frenship head coach Amy Mangum said. “I think we were a little slow getting off the bus today and we were dragging a little bit but we ended up playing hard and Odessa High gave us a good fight.”
Odessa High has also yet to win a set since the start of district play as the Lady Bronchos have lost all three games in sweeps.
“I feel like what it’s going to take for us (to end the losing streak) believing that we can compete,” Odessa High head coach Cody Dominguez said. “We feel like we’re still dwelling and getting mad at what’s happening in the past. We just need to compete and let it go. Everyone has a good and bad days and we just need to respond.”
Frenship entered Friday’s game as one of only two teams in District 2-6A that has yet to lose. Midland Legacy was the other team undefeated at the top of the standings with Frenship.
As Frenship keeps its eyes set on a district title, Mangum said the undefeated start has been important.
“I think it’s been a very crucial start to district play,” Mangum said. “Every night is a battle. The girls have prepared well for it. They’ve done a great job of finishing games.”
