They are 6-1 against the field, with their lone loss being to Southern Boone in the Versailles tournament just over a week ago. Blair Oaks is hoping that being out of Helias’s district (they knocked out the Lady Falcons the last 4 years) will help them win their 1st District title since 2006. After starting the season 21-0 the Lady Falcons are 6-4 in their last 10 games of the season. They will play the winner of the Eldon-Osage game tonight on 10/30 at 5 pm.
The California Lady Pintos (24-6-3) are the #2 seed in the District. California is 6-2-1 against the tournament field, with both losses being against Blair Oaks.

The Eldon Lady Mustangs (15-8-1) are the #4 seed in the tournament. Eldon is limping into District’s as losers of 5 of their last 6 matches after winning their own tournament earlier in the month. The Lady Mustangs are 3-5-0 against the teams in the District. They play Osage in the first round who defeated them in straight sets earlier in the year.
Osage Lady Indians (13-11-2) are the #5 seed in this District. The Lady Indians have won their last 4 matches coming into Districts but are just 5-5 over their last 10 matches of the season. They’ve been up and down all season but if they can get hot they can make some waves in this tough District Tournament. They take on Tri-County Conference Rival Eldon tonight at 6 pm.
The Capital City Lady Cavaliers (0-21-2) are competing in their first year of Volleyball and come into the tournament as the #6 seed. It’s been a tough year and a learning experience for the new school as they are win-less coming into Districts. Capital City has faced every team in this District except Blair Oaks. They have lost their last 9 matches coming into the post-season but are hoping their first win of the season and for the program can come at a big time. They play Southern Boone at 7 pm tonight.
