Make it 6-0.
The Man High School girls volleyball team won its sixth straight match last Thursday night with a pair of road wins at Wyoming East.
The Lady Billies won 25-12, 25-18 over East, then took a three-set victory over Mingo Central, 25-20, 23-25, 25-13.
Man is believed to be off to its best start in volleyball since 2000 when the Lady Billies finished 33-8 and were a Class AA regional participant.
“We played a lot better than what we played on Tuesday night,” Man coach Orlando Washington said. “Sarah Grimmett and Abby Lusk served well during the matches. My two freshmen Summer Combs and Hannah Harvey also showed signs of improvement during tonight’s games. Mika McCoy and Andi Short’s sets were also better during the contests. We still need to improve our passing so we can get more attacks on the ball.”
Man is scheduled to return to action tonight at Class AAA Lincoln County in a 6 p.m. contest.
The Lady Billies are home on Thursday, Sept. 13 against county rival Chapmanville and Westside. Man beat Chapmanville and host Logan in the season opener on Aug. 30 to win the Logan County tri-match championship.
The Chapmanville Regional High School volleyball team was scheduled to play last week at Scott and at Poca but no scores were reported to the Logan Banner.
The Lady Tigers are at Wayne tonight in a 6 p.m. match before going to Man on Thursday. Chapmanville’s home opener is set for Sept. 25 against Herbert Hoover.
The Logan High School volleyball team is 0-3 after falling 3-0 at Sissonville last Tuesday. The Lady Cats were then set to play at Lincoln County last Thursday but no score was reported to the Logan Banner.
Logan plays Sept. 15 at Westside and then goes to Westside again two days later on Sept. 17.
The next home match for Logan is Oct. 2 against Mingo Central.
