The Huskies volleyball team added a win and a loss to their record in both MVAC play and for the season as they split conference matches to Wilkes county opponents.
Last Tuesday, the Huskies hosted Dig Pink Night as a fundraiser. The Huskies hosted the West Wilkes Blackhawks, and in a tough match with the Blackhawks, Ashe fell in five games, with West Wilkes winning the match three games to two.
Ashe bounced back after having Wednesday off from match play when they defeated the North Wilkes Vikings on Thursday in three games, adding a tally in their win column with the 3-0 sweep of North Wilkes.
On Tuesday against West Wilkes, the Huskies fell behind late in game one, falling 25-21, but then surged in game two tying the match at one game apiece with a 25-20 victory.
Game three simply put was a sloppy affair for Ashe, with West Wilkes winning large, 25-11, giving them the 2-1 advantage. Game four was do or die for Ashe, and the Huskies stayed alive, extending the match to a decisive game five with a 25-21 victory. Game five was back and forth the entire match, and West Wilkes made the final rally late in the game, pulling ahead for the final victory with a 15-13 score in game five.
The Huskies took advantage of having Wednesday off from match play to regroup and came out Thursday when they hosted the North Wilkes Vikings charged and ready to return to winning. Ashe swarmed the Vikings with an aggressive playing style, which landed the Huskies a 3-0 victory, with the closing game being game three, which Ashe won 25-21. Game one belonged to the Huskies 25-14 and game two was another substantial win for Ashe with the 25-16 score.
