The Watauga High volleyball team didn't waste any time disposing of T.C. Roberson in the opening round of the North Carolina High School Athletic Assocation Class 4A state playoffs.

 

The Pioneers (19-7), riding a four-game winning streak, defeated the Rams (13-13), a wildcard team from the Mountain Athletic 3A/4A Conference, in three games: 25-19, 25-22, 25-14 on Saturday at Lentz-Eggers Gym. The Pioneers will now play A.C. Reynolds (14-10) in a second-round match at home Tuesday night The Rockets defeated South Caldwell 3-0 in their first-round match.
Kristen Carter backboned WHS with 37 assists; Hannah Stewart had 14 kills and Skylar Hicks had 15 digs and three service aces.
"It was nice to get the first one out of the way," said WHS coach Kris Hagaman. "(TCR) were a good team. They were scrappy, but we controlled the match."
Colby Combs, who will sign with Bluefield College on November 3, had ten kills; Channing Hagaman had eight kills and Rebecca Hayes had five kills. The Pioneers, who have reached the sectional finals five years in a row, will now play ACR, a team that beat them back on August 25 in a five-set match.
"It's nice to meet up with them again, especially at our place," Hagaman said. "We didn't play real well the last time we faced them. I'm really looking forward to this rematch."
Hagaman has also announced that Combs and Anna Church will both sign with Bluefield College, an NAIA school in Bluefield, Va., on November 3 at the WHS library.
