It was a good win last Thursday night on the road as the Chapmanville Regional High School volleyball squad took a 3-1 decision at Logan.

Chapmanville lost 25-21 in the first set, then roared back to tie it up 1-1 with a 28-26 edge in the second set. The Lady Tigers then took the match by downing Logan 25-19 in the third and 25-21 in the fourth.

Chapmanville improved to 6-7 on the season and beat Logan for the second time this year. The struggling Lady Cats fell to 3-16 with the loss.

“It was a good win for us,” Lady Tigers’ coach Johnny Williamson said. “We needed that one. It was the second straight Triple-A team that we had played with Lincoln County being the other one. It got us back on track. Some of our sophomores are starting to contribute for us. The next two weeks will be big for us because all are conference matches and it will determine our seeding for the sectional tournament.”

Chapmanville’s players wore special pink jerseys to commemorate October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Lady Tigers are scheduled to host its annual tourney on Oct. 19 which will also helps raise awareness to breast cancer.

CRHS is scheduled to return to action on Tuesday night at Scott. The Lady Tigers then go to Mingo Central on Thursday before playing at Sissonville on Oct. 15 and at Wayne on Oct. 17. All matches have 6 p.m. starting times.

Chapmanville also won the JV match over Logan, 25-21, 28-26.

Logan was set to play on Saturday at the Mingo Central Quad Match but no scores were made available to the Logan Banner.
