Bishop Lynch had another busy weekend on the court, playing seven matches in two days at the 2015 Allen ISD Texas Open. The Lady Friars finished tied for third overall, behind only Southlake Carroll and host Allen — the tournament champion.
The Lady Friars (13-5) head to McKinney tonight to take on the Lions in their final tune-up for district play, scheduled to begin Thursday against Argyle Liberty.

On Friday, BL opened with a pair of sweeps in pool play, taking down West Mesquite (25-10, 25-10) and Frisco Centennial (25-17, 25-18) with ease, before running into Plano West for the pool’s top spot.

For the second time in a week, Plano West got the best of the Lady Friars, winning the pool with a sweep of BL (25-19, 25-20). The girls fought their way into the champions bracket with a crossover win against the Carroll JV (25-22, 25-21).

On Saturday, the Lady Friars made their way to the tournament semifinals with wins over Flower Mound Marcus (25-15, 25-18) and McKinney (25-19, 26-24), before falling to Carroll in the final four (25-18, 25-21).

BL was scheduled to face Plano West again Saturday evening for third place, but the two teams reached a mutual decision to share the feat, citing overall team fatigue as the determining factor.

BL senior Catherine Balido (Boston College commit) was named to the All-Tournament team after smashing 39 kills during the event. Other statistical leaders for the Lady Friars include:

• Madi Tyus — 30 kills, 29 digs

• Francesca Goncalves — 42 kills, 20 digs and seven aces

• Callie Williams — 74 assists, 28 digs and eight aces

• Melanie Heigele — 58 assists, 22 digs

• Briana Kipp — 22 kills, five blocks

• Morgan Hinds — 47 digs
