Glen Rose volleyball coach Sandy Langford wins 500th match

Sandy Langford, who’s been with Glen Rose for nearly 10 years, won her 500th career game on Tuesday when the Tigers defeated China Spring. After dropping the second set, the Tigers won the third and fourth to take the match 25-20, 19-25, 25-17, 25-22.

The Tigers are coming off the ‘Iolani Ann Kang Invitational in Hawaii.

They will host their own tournament this weekend.

Langford has been with Glen Rose since the 2014 season. In her first year, the team won 38 games overall and 13-1 in district. In 2016 and 2017, the Tigers were one of the top Class 4A teams in the state going 90-6. They went to the regional tournament in 2016 and made the state tournament in 2017. The 2017 state appearance is the only one in program history. Argyle won a semifinal classic 25-22, 25-19, 22-25, 23-25, 15-13. That team featured hitters Libby Hinton and Logan Smith, who both went on to play at Harding.

Last season, the Tigers went 28-13 overall, 6-2 in district and reached the Class 4A Region 1 quarterfinals where they lost to Decatur.

Prior to Glen Rose, Langford spent many years coaching her alma mater Nocona.

She was an all-state outside hitter in high school and then took the Indians to the Class 2A state championship match in 2011. It was the program’s first trip to state in 10 years. But after beating 42-win White Oak in the semis, Nocona lost to Poth in the title game in straight sets.
