Entering the 2011 season, the Borger Lady Bulldog volleyball team returns four players off last yearâ€™s regional semi-final team. For many programs, the loss of so many players would lead to a rebuilding phase as younger players adjust to the varsity level. However for the Lady Bulldogs, a good amount of talent is coming up the pipeline which should form a team able to make a playoff run come October.
In 2010, the Lady Bulldogs reached the 3A Regional Semi-Finals for the second time in five years setting the tone for a good off-season.
Monday evening the Sanford-Fritch Lady Eagles will open their 2011 season in Amarillo taking on San Jacinto and Caprock starting at 6:00 p.m. at San Jacinto High School.
Look for a season preview for the Lady Eagles next week in the Borger News Herald.

After dropping classifications in 2008, the West Texas Lady Comanches have established themselves as arguably the best 1A volleyball program in the Texas Panhandle and are poised to maintain that status in 2011.
During the 2010 season, the Lady Comanches went undefeated in district play. With the team graduating one senior from that squad, the expectations are for the team to challenge for another District 5-1A title and make a run in the playoffs.
