It might have been more than a decade since Sebring and DeSoto were in the same district in volleyball, but some things never change as far as intensity and rivalries are concerned. Throw in the extra incentive that the top seed gets to host districts, add Lemon Bay and Hardee to the mix, and suddenly you have a volleyball district that looks to be a dogfight all season. Last Thursday night’s varsity game took all five sets for the Bulldogs to pull out a 3-2 match win over Sebring.

Junior Datasia Wallace felt the prior tough matches against Charlotte and Port Charlotte would help DeSoto be better prepared for Sebring. Head coach Laura White knew both teams have had their ups and downs in the early season, but was concerned because Sebring already had a tournament under its belt and more game play.
