With a trip to the 4A Region II semifinals on the line, Decatur and Argyle entered the third set all square at one. After getting the first point, Argyle lost control for most of the game, unable to pull ahead of Decatur. Up 20-19, Decatur was on the cusp of taking a commanding 2-1 lead in the match. Then Argyle mounted a rally. Argyle outscored Decatur 6-1 to take the third set 25-20, flipping momentum to knock its old coach Clark Oberle out of the playoffs, 3-1 (25-17, 19-25, 25-20, 25-16).

Boyd rallies to unseat region champ Peaster

Last year on election night, the Boyd Lady Yellowjackets’ season ended with a loss to the eventual 3A runner-up Peaster. After dropping the first set and falling behind 6-1 and later 24-15 in the second Tuesday, it appeared the Lady Yellowjackets’ challenge to the incumbent Region I champion would fall short again. But behind the serving of Kamryn Frenzel and a frenzied defense, the Lady Yellowjackets staved off set point and began their rally. Boyd won the set 26-24 to get back in the match. Three games later, Boyd ended Peaster’s tenure as region champion with a dramatic victory in the 3A Region I quarterfinal at Jacksboro High School (22-25, 26-24, 21-25, 25-22, 15-12).

For Decatur coach Clark Oberle, next Tuesday’s 4A Region II quarterfinal is just another match – and another team standing in his way of a second state title. Forget the fact Oberle will know virtually everyone on the other sideline, and that this is one of Decatur’s biggest rivals. It’s merely happenstance the Lady Eagles’ next opponent is Oberle’s old team who he won a state championship with two years ago.
