The Lady Indians (32-16) trailed 11-10 in the first set when Sanchez recorded a huge block, starting a huge WHS run en route to a 1-0 match lead.

After Belton rallied to stay alive in the third set, the Lady Indians removed all doubt to the outcome quickly as Head stepped up with a kill and a block to make it 9-2. Sanchez’s kill on match point set the Lady Indians onward in the playoffs.

WHS moves on to face 10-6A champion Rockwall (26-14), which swept Rowlett on Tuesday night. The match was scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Friday at Mesquite Poteet High School. The winner will play either Waco Midway or Sachse early next week in the 6A Region II quarterfinals.
