VOLLEYBALL: Lady Ro-Hawks swoop past Lady Mustangs


The Nixon-Smiley Lady Mustangs tussled once more with the Universal City Randolph Lady Ro-Hawks, this time on the road Friday, Oct. 8, but came up on the short end of a three-set loss to the district leaders.

Randolph won the first set, 25-17, and took the second set with a 25-15 score. Though Nixon-Smiley played hard in the third set, they lost, 25-18, as the Ro-Hawks completed the sweep.

The loss drops the Lady Mustangs to 23-11 overall and 7-2 in District 26-3A, but Nixon-Smiley remains in second place in district and can clinch a playoff berth with a win at Marion on Tuesday, Oct. 12.
