After finishing seventh in the prestigious Adidas Texas Volleyball Invitational, the Decatur Lady Eagles retained their spot atop Class 4A.

The defending state champion and preseason No. 1 team stayed atop the Texas Girls Coaches Association poll after their 5-3 showing at the tournament, which was filled with the top teams in the state. Decatur (7-3) was the lone 4A squad in the event.

After going 2-1 in pool play, Decatur won its way into the gold bracket with a sweep of Rouse Friday. The Lady Eagles then beat Flower Mound Marcus and Austin Westlake in two games each to move into the tournament quarterfinals.

Host Pearland, ranked No. 5 in 6A, stopped Decatur 25-19, 25-18. The Lady Eagles ended the tournament with a three-game loss to Alamo Heights, ranked third in 5A, 23-25, 25-19, 15-9.

Decatur hit the floor again Tuesday night against another ranked foe, 5A’s ninth-ranked Aledo.
