Hallsville Kelsey Offutt goes up for a block.

HALLSVILLE -- Tyler Lee had some things going for it Tuesday facing East Texas' historically best big school program. It largely forced Hallsville to win against good serving and a strong front court.

But, just when the Lady Raiders got slightly comfortable with a 21-18 lead in the second set after a first set loss, Ladycats senior hitter Audrey Slaten found her own groove and reeled off eight of the next nine Hallsville points for a second set win and then the framework for a pretty easy third set.

It's funny to think a team that started the season 1-5 could have clawed all the way back to win a state championship. Yet Arp got closer and closer to an 11-5 record with a ring last season.

The Tigers had a Waskom problem, however. The Wildcats handed Arp its final loss ahead of a six-game winning streak and then circled back in the playoffs for another win en route to a second consecutive Class 3A Division II state title.

ETSN Class 6A/5A Preseason Poll: No. 2, Lufkin Panthers

Lufkin receives Malik Jackson (2), Dhailon Phillips (5) and Javante Ellington (4) might be big parts of what could be the region's best offense this season. (Rob Graham, ETSN.fm)

Lufkin almost always gets ranked when writers explore high school football culture around the nation. If the town doesn't get ranked, it's a bad oversight.

Panthers fans fill the home side of their 11,000-seat Abe Martin Stadium and spill over into designated seating on the away side. Whether it's getting riled up about a bad call or bad execution, the assuredly deserving offenders get to hear it from all directions.
