It was CHS' second sweep of the Lady Rebels this season, having taken a 2-0 decision over HFHS in the Pontotoc Classic.

Lady Warriors sweep Lady Bears, remain unbeaten

Photo by Donnie Bates

Alcorn Central's Mia Griffin (13) goes head to head at the net against Corinth's Saili Weeden during Thursday's All-Alcorn County match between the two rivals. The AC/CHS volleyball rivalry has turned into an "event", with large crowds and rowdy, supportive student cheer sections. The Lady Warriors won the match 3-0 to improve to 4-0 on the season while the Lady Bears dropped their second straight home match to fall to 2-2. Central's two losses have come against top-tier teams in Tupelo and Corinth. Both squads will participate in the Alcorn Central Invitational Saturday, a tournament set on both AC courts with two pools of teams. Corinth and Alcorn Central could play each other again Saturday in the finals if both advance that far. Check out the complete match scores and stats from this match, as well as the Kossuth and Biggersville matches, in todays DC sports pages.
