Industrial Sweeps Goliad to Advance to State

Industrial volleyball is going to State for the first time in school history.

After having their last four seasons cut short at the hands of powerhouse Goliad, the Cobras got their revenge on Saturday with a straight sets victory over the Tigers to advance to the UIL Class 3A state championship for the first time in program history. Goliad had previously eliminated Industrial in the playoffs in 2014 and 2015, and did so in the regional final in 2016 and 2017.

With the victory, the Cobras improved their overall record on the season to 38-3. They will play Boyd in the state semifinal at the Curtis Cullwell Center in Garland on Thursday at 11 am.

Dak Prescott had 270 yards passing, tossed for one touchdown and also ran for a score. Elliott also had a TD reception.
