It was a huge night of High School Volleyball in the Texas Panhandle on Tuesday as the UIL allowed Class 6A and Class 5A schools to open their schedules along with the small schools which started a month ago.

In the Amarillo-area, the Class 5A teams highlighted Tuesday with key showdowns in their respective openers.

Here’s three things we learned from Tuesday nights nondistrict action.
