The Port Isabel Lady Tarpons volleyball team won their district opening match Tuesday night against Raymondville at Tarpon Gym.
Port Isabel won by the scores of 25-21, 25-23, 24-26, 28-26. The team starts district play with a 1-0 record. This Friday they will be at La Feria for the second league match of the season.
It was a close, hard-fought match and at no time in any set were the two sides separated by more than five points.
“We didn’t want to go to a fifth set,” Head Coach Julie Breedlove said afterwards. “Raymondville’s always ready for us. My hat’s off to them because they played a good solid, strong, and scrappy game.”
