Volleyball: Rusk, Bullard to open playoffs this evening


Rusk and Bullard will set sail in post season waters on Tuesday night, when both schools have have bi-district playoff matches scheduled.

The Lady Eagles, who finished third in District 19-4A, will go up against the Lady Bulldogs of Jasper, the District 20-4A runner-up.

That match will take place at 6 p.m. at Lufkin Middle School.

The winner between Rusk and Jasper will face either Midlothian Heritage or Waco Robinson in the Area round later this week.

Bullard, fresh off a 10-1 run through District 16-4A where the Lady Panthers claimed the league championship last week, will test the fourth seed from District 19-4A, when they play Liberty Eylau at 6 p.m. at Longview High School.

A Bullard win on Tuesday would advance the Lady Panthers to play either Nevada Community or Mabank in the Area round in late week.
