The McKinney Lionettes’ playoff future is intact, thanks to a sweep of Plano West (25-16, 25-23, 27-25) Friday at Wake Land High School in Frisco.
McKinney secures the fourth and final playoff spot in 10-5A with Friday’s victory. Both MHS and West finished the 2013 season 5-5 in 10-5A, but league rules state a team cannot be knocked out of playoff contention based on head-to-head records.
Erin Hoppe and Claire Embry led the charge offensively for MHS, each knocking down 13 kills.
Ashley Robert led the Lionettes with 24 digs, while Hannah Pruitt and Embry each totaled 14 digs.
