All things pointed to another Amarillo High victory. Instead, Clear Falls snapped the No. 1 Lady Sandies’ 24-match winning streak with a 25-23, 25-19, 25-19 win in the UIL state volleyball Class 6A semifinals Friday at Curtis Culwell Center.

WICHITA FALLS — The Amarillo High Sandies showed they could land plenty of blows standing toe-to-toe with an offensively prolific opponent Friday night.
