East Gadsden High School took Rickards past regulation score but lost by two in the first game of the three-game volleyball match. 

The effort then thinned out in games two and three. Rickards moved to 3-7 with the win.

The West Gadsden High School Panthers found the Bulldogs more than they could handle in a district matchup last week. 

Finding very little defense to combat the Liberty County offense,  West Gadsden spent most of the game without any offensive fire. 

Liberty County remained undefeated at 8-0 on the season.

The Robert F. Munroe volleyball team won two of three last week to run its record to 8-2 on the season. 

The Lady Cats defeated Grace Christian at home and Godby on the road, and lost the second district match, this time to host John Paul II on Tuesday night.

The Lady Cats defeated visiting Grace Christian of Bainbridge last Monday night at the Munroe gym.  Courtney Mayo was effective at the middle block position where the junior had six kills, eight digs and four aces. 

Kristen Allen finished with 23 assists along with five digs and Spenser Morris added five kills and four digs.  Freshman Kaitlyn Sirmons continued to impress in her first year of varsity competition as the libero tallied six aces and three digs.

The Lady Cats ran into a brick wall called the Panthers on Tuesday night and left with a big district loss. 

John Paul won three games handily and subbed freely in the loss. 

Morris stepped up her game and tallied seven kills, 11 digs and four aces.  Mayo and Adrianne Woodward added six kills together and Sirmons and Audrey Thomas tallied seven digs each.

Morris had a season-high 13 kills and Allen a season-high 23 assists in a five game match win over Godby in Tallahassee. 

Munroe won the first two but faltered in games three and four but rallied in the fifth game. 

Mayo helped on offense with seven kills and eight digs on defense.  Thomas contributed five kills as well. Allen added six aces as the team went to 8-2 on the season.
