Canyon volleyball

Canyon senior Erin Jones recorded a triple-double during Friday’s 3-1 playoff win with 18 assists, 18 digs and 11 kills.

BUDA — Canyon faced a strong challenge from Leander Friday night in a Class 5A bi-district playoff match at Johnson High School in Buda, but the Cougarettes prevailed 3-1 to punch their ticket to the second round.

Canyon (21-1) dropped the opening set 25-19 to the Lady Lions, but head coach Heather Sanders’ team regrouped in plenty of time to claim the next three sets by consecutive scores of 25-12, 25-23 and 28-26 to eliminate the pesky fourth-place finishers from District 25-5A.
