H.S. Volleyball: Lady Tigers avoid upset-minded Harmony; win 3-2



 The 16th-ranked Troup Lady Tiger volleyball dodged a bullet Tuesday night to win a 5-set marathon, 3-2, over the Harmony Lady Eagles.

Troup improved to 23-12 overall, 12-0 in District 18-2A with the win while the Lady Eagles tumbled to 17-14, 6-4.

Harmony won the opening game, 25-20, with Troup rallying to win the next two sets, 25-8 and 25-23.

In Game 4 the Lady Eagles prevailed, 25-23, which forced a fifth and decisive set.

Troup then dug deep and pulled out a 15-10 win to stay perfect in league play.

The Lady Tigers will visit West Rusk on Friday and close the regular season out at home Tuesday by taking on Hawkins.
