The Watauga High volleyball team had its six-game winning streak snapped on Saturday.

The Pioneers dropped a pair of matches to Starmount and Pfafftown Reagan by identical 3-1 scores in a tri-match at Lentz-Eggers Gym on Saturday afternoon. The Pioneers (7-4) dropped a 25-23, 19-25, 21-25, 18-25 decision to Starmount, which won the Class 2A state championship last fall; they dropped a 17-25, 26-24, 23-25, 22-25 decision to Reagan.
Kristen Carter had another stellar day, despite the double-dip loss, with 66 assists (30 against Starmount and 36 against Reagan). Hannah Stewart had 17 kills and ten digs; Channing Hagaman had 18 kills, 27 digs and four aces; Ashlyn Van Dyke had 28 digs and three aces to pace WHS on the day. Colby Combs had six kills, seven digs and three aces; Kim Robinson had four kills and four blocks; Rebecca Hayes had six kills and four blocks; and Anna Church had five kills and ten digs.
The Pioneers, who have won 21 consecutive games in the Northwestern 3A/4A Conference, travel to Alexander Central on Thursday. Ironically, the Cougars were the last team to beat WHS in league play in 2009. The teams shared the conference title that year, but the Cougars won the coin toss and earned the No.1 seed in the NW3A/4A in the Class 4A state playoffs.
