HoCo sweeps 3 to lead Area competition

An “amazing night.”

That’s how Houston County volleyball Head Coach Maria Huelsman summed the Lady Bears’ Thursday night.

The squad swept all three opponents they face, which currently has them in first place in AAAAAA Area 1 – with Valdosta, Northside and Lee County.

Houston County began the night by beating host Lee County 2-1.

“It was an epic battle,” Huelsman said. “It was just beautiful volleyball from both teams. I give credit to my whole team. They all pulled their weight in our victory.”

From there, the Lady Bears beat Northside 2-0 and Valdosta 2-0.

Next up will be the county championship Oct. 3 before hosting all of the aforementioned Area opponents on Oct. 7. Times on that day will be noon, 1 and 2 p.m. It will also be the Lady Bears’ Senior Night.
