Last night, the road to seven state titles began as the Lady Leopards took down the Frisco Independence Knights in a three set sweep.
The Leopards came out strong winning the first set by a score of 25-16.
In the second set, the Knights put up a fight. Although they were down 18-11 in the second set, the Knights gained momentum and cut their deficit to as little as two points. However, the Leopards would ultimately win the second set by a score of 25-22.
Advancing to the third set, the Leopards put the match away after a 25-18 victory.
The Woodrow Wilson Wildcats are the next team in line for the Leopards. The two squads face off this thursday at R.L. Turner High School at 7 p.m.
