WCMS sees streak snapped
Madison Hollis makes a set in Thursdays game against district rival White County in Sparta.

The WCMS Lady Pioneer winning streak came to an end Thursday afternoon in White County.
The Lady Pioneers battled with White County Middle School for the whole match, but the Warriorettes were able to hold on for the win by scores of 28-26, 19-25, and 15-11.
In the first set, Lady Pioneers tied the game, 18-18. With several opportunities for game point for the win, WCMS was unable to capitalize. The Lady Pioneers missed three serves for game point. White County then capitalized to pull out with the win, 28-26.
In the second set, WCMS had less service errors and was able to climb out to a big lead, 16-11. Danika Reno served 6 straight to help hold the lead.
The Lady Pioneers were then able to get the win in the second game with better serves and communication on the court. Reno and Madison Hollis both had key kills.
“We were more like the team we have been all year,” said WCMS coach Kelly Clayborne of the second game.
In the third game, it was a back and forth so neither team was able to establish momentum. WCMS found itself to be down 12-9 and couldn’t dig deep enough to pull out the win. With this lose, the Lady Pioneers move to 7-1 on the season.
“This was a tough loss for us,” said Clayborne. “You can’t play teams like White County and expect to win if you do not bring your A game. The girls didn’t show up ready to take care of business. We had missed serves at important points of the game that led to our first loss of the season.”
