MALAKOFF -- Franklin fans were ready to blow the lid off Malakoff High School's gym as White Oak took its first timeout of the first set.
This was their team's statement game. Franklin's 2014 season had ended swiftly to the Ladynecks in the Class 3A regional championship, but things were looking excellent midway through the first set.
LINDALE -- To describe the Beckville Ladycats' play during the second half of the season as dominant might be underselling it. And the string of perfection continued Tuesday night.
Second-ranked Beckville advanced to its fourth consecutive regional volleyball tournament with 25-18, 25-14, 25-14 sweep of Cumby, which was the Ladycats' 16th consecutive victory -- all via the sweep, a string of 48 straight winning sets.
