After winning the first two sets and taking a commanding 2-0 lead in the match, the Boyd Lady Jackets came to a fork in the road.

With Brock’s season one set from ending, the Lady Eagles attempted to mount a rally. Going up 10-2 in the third game, it appeared as though momentum had swung Brock’s direction.

That is, until Jordyn Todd took the match over.

Todd put down nine kills in the final set to secure Boyd’s trip to the state tournament as the Lady Jackets defeated the Lady Eagles 3-0 (25-18, 25-19, 25-23) in the 3A Region I final at Lubbock Coronado High School.

Todd finished with 14 kills, hitting .333. Macee Valtr had another productive day, compiling 12 kills.

Jacey Cate paired with Shaylee Martin and Laney Pellegrini to provide the Lady Yellowjackets with a defensive presence that gathered points off deflections throughout the match. And despite a late rally from Brock, Boyd weathered the storm and stuck with their gameplan.

Three Lady Jackets players walked out with individual awards, as Tori Pellegrini and Todd each earned an All-Tournament Team award, with Valtr winning the MVP award.

In her last six sets, Valtr has put down 30 kills.
