The scores were closer, but the positive result was the same for Highland Park in its two most recent District 11-5A matches.
The Lady Scots remained perfect 8-0 in league play with sweeps of Woodrow Wilson (25-19, 25-20, 25-23) on Sept. 28 and Carrollton Newman Smith (25-21, 25-22, 25-22) on Tuesday. The latter match began the second half of the 11-5A schedule, during which HP has yet to drop a set.
That’s part of the reason the Lady Scots inserted a couple of nondistrict Saturday matches into their slate this year, to assist with playoff preparations. The first of those comes on Saturday, when HP travels to face Rockwall-Heath after playing at Conrad the night before.
After that, the Lady Scots will play four of their next five matches at home, including Oct. 9 against Bryan Adams.
