This volleyball game portrayed what often happens with life.
District rival Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds and Highlands Ladybird
volleyball teams looked good one game then not so good the next. But the
Thoroughbreds (13-9) fought through the adversity for a 3-1 (25-16, 22-25,
25-8, 25-18) win to clinch the top seed in the district tournament to be played
at Bellevue. They have a winning record against a tough schedule.
