Victoria East team tennis defeated Rosenberg Terry 13-6 to make the playoffs on Wednesday at East.
This is the third time in the last four years that East has qualified for the playoffs.
East won six of the seven doubles matches, while winning seven of 12 singles.
"We knew tonight was going to be a battle," said East coach Tony Williams. "We have been a strong doubles team all year and in a race to 10 matches going up 6-1 after doubles is a huge accomplishment.
"Dustin Holland and Aaliyah Hosey played an incredible mixed doubles match and that definitely gave us momentum going into the singles matches."
The Titans will play the winner of District 28-5A - either San Antonio Jefferson or San Antonio Edison - on Monday and Tuesday in Victoria.
