|Volleyball: HP 1-2 in Pearland today by Scott Farrell|
HP went 1-2 in pool play matches today in the opening rounds of the Pearland Tournament, but played its two losses about as close as they come.
Just two days after losing close to Plano West in five sets, the Lady Scots (12-9) fell in their opener, 25-19, 26-24, to Colleyville Heritage. HP came back to sweep Deer Park, 25-17, 25-11, and end a five-match losing streak. And in the final pool play match, playing for a spot in the Gold Division (championship) bracket, HP fell to The Woodlands, 24-26, 30-29, 25-23. The Woodlands is ranked No. 8 in this week's coaches' state poll.
It is worth noting again the competition that HP is playing. Four of the losses during the five-game losing streak that HP endured into this tournament came against teams that either qualified for the Gold Division in Pearland, or are playing matches early Friday to play-into the Gold Division. Plano West is the exception, and they aren't playing in Pearland this weekend.
The Lady Scots play again Friday morning at 11 a.m. against the winner between Midlothian and Jersey Village. Both are Class 5A programs.
