Volleyball headed to Independence to face off against the fourth place team in District 13-5A on Friday.

The Redhawks started off the game strong dominating the first set 25-19. Independence then battled back winning the next set 25-23, but it was not enough as the Redhawks pulled away winning the next two sets defeating Independence 3-1 improving their district record to 9-2.

With only three district games left, volleyball looks to hold on to the second place spot in District 13-5A.

Shortly after volleyball took home the win, the football team took to the field at the Ford Center to take on the first place team in District 13-5A, the Lone Star Rangers.

With a few key players out for the Redhawks like running back Dmitri Jones, the offense  struggled as they were outgained by a 3:1 margin. Turnovers also hurt the Redhawks as they turned the ball over three times versus the Rangers who had none, allowing the Rangers to pull away for the 52-0 win.
