Prep Roundup: Lady Bulldogs knock off Chino Valley
KINGMAN – The Kingman High School volleyball team has dealt with its fair share of struggles since the 2014 season. In that span the Lady Bulldogs had never won more than one game in a season, but they put that streak to an end Tuesday night with a 3-2 win (20-25, 27-25, 19-25, 25-20, 15-9) at No. 33 ranked Chino Valley.
The victory was Kingman’s second in its past four matches and moved Kingman to third in the 3A West Region standings. The Lady Bulldogs’ best finish in the region was fifth in 2016, the inaugural season of the 3A West Region.
No. 34 ranked Kingman (2-8, 2-3 3A West Region) travels to No. 40 ranked Wickenburg (0-12, 0-5) at 6 p.m. Thursday.
Lee Williams 3, Mohave 2
At Mohave, the Lady Vols had to dig themselves out of a 2-0 hole, but they managed to complete the comeback Tuesday night to knock off the Lady T-birds in five sets.
No. 35 ranked Mohave won the first set 25-23 and then took a 2-0 advantage with a 25-22 victory in Set 2. However, Lee Williams bounced back with three victories (25-20, 25-17, 15-3) to win its third straight match.
