CHAPMANVILLE — The Chapmanville Regional High School volleyball team received some great news this week.
Lady Tigers lost their home match with Wyoming East on Monday in five sets but thought they had also lost one of their best players, Savannah Wiley, due to an ankle injury.
It turned out to just be a sprain, so they hope to have her back in the lineup soon.
Chapmanville then went to Scott on Tuesday without Wiley and won a pair of matches over Logan and Scott to improve to 7-2 on the season.
Monday’s match with Wyoming East went to five sets. Chapmanville was up 14-8 in the fifth and deciding set and were one point away from victory. However, the Lady Warriors stormed back to score eight straight points to take get the win. East won 25-20, 24-26, 25-14, 20-25 and 14-16.
“We lost Savannah Wiley in the second set with a bad ankle injury and she is a big part of our team,” CRHS coach Johnny Williamson said. “But after going to the hospital we got great news. It was only a bad sprain. She should be back in a week or two.”
The Lady Tigers dominated Logan, winning 25-10, 25-17, then defeated Scott 25-12, 25-14.
“My girls stepped up without Savannah and played well,” Coach Williamson said. “Addy Lucas held our team together without Savannah. Shian Meeks improves every game.”
Chapmanville is scheduled to travel to Herbert Hoover on Thursday.
“I hope we can hold down the fort until we can get our all-state player back,” Williamson said of Wiley.
