At Rio Grande City High School Tuesday, the 18th ranked Veterans Memorial Lady Patriots defeated the Laredo Nixon Lady Mustangs in the bi-district round of the state playoffs. After taking the first two sets 25-11 and 25-21, it looked as if Coach Diana Lerma’s Lady Patriots were well on their way to a straight sets victory when the Lady Mustangs bounced back to take the third set 25-22. Not having lost a set to any team other than 8th ranked Edcouch-Elsa all season, Veterans Memorial got back on their game in the fourth set to finish off the Lady Mustangs 25-12.
