The Wheatmore volleyball team recovered well to end the first set, played well throughout the second and held off Ledford in the third to win 25-20, 25-12, 25-23 on Monday in a nonconference match in which the varsity, in an unusual twist, played before the junior varsity.
High Five: Bison remain second, while Ledford takes third.
To earn such an accolade is an achievement for the program, which has reached the state title game five times in the last 10 years and won three state championships (bringing its total to 12), but it can also have a negative influence.
