It has been clear from the beginning the waves will come and come and come.

Head Coach Alex Dean said the Highlands Bluebirds girls soccer team wants to continuously put pressure on the opponents hoping to capitalize on mistakes. It worked out well for the second game as the Bluebirds (2-0 overall) downed the rival Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds (1-1) by a 3-0 count at Tower Park on Monday in 36th District action.

Thursday Highlands Sports Notes

Great Evening for Highlands Volleyball, Girls Soccer

A 2-0 start was nice for the Highlands Bluebirds volleyball team because it had not happened since 2012.

But the Bluebirds entered Thursday's home opener hoping to cap off the week with an even better clean sweep of three wins in four days to start the season. That had not happened since 2008.

The county rival Campbell County Camels (1-2) came into the game determined to take another step forward under the guidance of second-year Head Coach Kennedy Berkley. Campbell County has seven seniors on the team coming off a 17-18 season last year. The Camels lost to Scott in the 10th Region championship last year.

The nail-biter that could have gone either way saw Highlands come through for a 3-2 victory. After two sound 3-0 wins to start the season, the Bluebirds had to pull out everything to record the win.

This volleyball team has shown how tough it can be when it attacks the entire court in its first 2-0 start since 2012.
