The victory also secured a playoff berth for GHS, marking the 12th-consecutive season for the program to advance to postseason. "It was a tough win at a place that is always tough to play," said Gatesville coach Rickey Phillips, whose club is now 31-7 overall. "Our kids held their composure and made the plays to win the match at the end. I am proud of them for securing the playoff nod, but they realize we aren't done just yet."
