Volleyball on display at SHAC Preview

The 2015 Southern Hills Athletic Conference volleyball teams were on display Friday night at North Adams High School as teams played two sets each in the now annual SHAC PreviewN ight.

Eastern and Fairfield took to the court first and Eastern dominated the first set, winning 22-8. But the Lions responded in a big way during the second set clawing out a 22-20 win to split the sets.

The next series saw Peebles narrowly take the first set against White Oak but in similar fashion to Eastern, fell in the second set 22-18.

Fayetteville took care of Ripley without breaking much of a sweat, winning both sets comfortably in the third set of games.

Fans were treated to an even matchup in the fourth round of games when West Union took on Manchester. The Greyhounds took the first set 22-16 and while the second set was close most of the way, the Dragons came away with a 22-16 victory in the second set.

In the nightcap, North Adams took care of Lynchburg Clay in straight sets to conclude the preview on their home court.
