The Watauga High volleyball team spotted Asheville-Roberson a two game lead, rallied, but fell short in its
comeback bid Tuesday night in Asheville, N.C..
The Rams (17-6), the No.1 seed from the Moutain Athletic 3A/4A Conference, defeated WHS 3-2 in the second round of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Class 4A state playoffs.
