CLARKSBURG – The Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School Little Lady Bucs scrapped their way into the championship round of the Washington Irving varsity volleyball Tournament here last Saturday before falling to the Washington Irving Lady Hilltoppers.

Coach Ashley Hall’s Little Lady Bucs won two matches, tied two and lost one in pool play, and qualified for the championship round as the third-place team in Pool B.

In pool play, they played just two games. They tied East Fairmont (21-25, 25-15), lost to Greenbrier East (25-17, 25-17), tied Milton (23-25, 27-26), whipped Oak Glen (26-24, 24-16), and defeated Ritchie County (25-13, 25-13).

They lost to Washington Irving in the title round, 25-19, 26-24.

“It was an exhaustingly long day,” remarked assistant coach Lisa Crites. “The girls played hard and we are very proud of their accomplishment.”

The Buckhannon girls returned to their regular schedule Monday evening and downed Philippi’s Lady Bulldogs by a 2-1 count, dropping the opener by a 25-22 margin, and bouncing back to reel off 25-20 and 25-15 victories.

The Little Lady Bucs will travel to Weston Monday to face Robert L. Bland’s Lady Patriots, go to Lincoln Tuesday and visit Mountaineer Wednesday.

They were to have entertained Bridgeport’s Lady Braves Tuesday night and were to have gone to Belington Wednesday to battle the Lady Hawks.
