WAVERLY — Class AA Horseheads proved a little too much for Waverly here
Tuesday night, sweeping the Lady Wolverines in non-league volleyball
The Lady Blue Raiders won by scores of 25-14, 25-21, and 25-10.
“I felt the girls did pretty well during the first two sets,” said Waverly coach Charity Meyers. “Horseheads definitely has a lot of depth to its team.
“It was a lot of fun playing them, and I’m glad we got the opportunity,” she added.
