Overlooking the obvious that on no day can there be a female Stallion, Monday was a good day to be a member of South Columbus Volleyball and Girls Tennis teams. Victory is typically sweet, but a win over your arch rival is even sweeter. South Columbus traveled to Whiteville Monday and took home wins in Volleyball, JV Volleyball and Girls Tennis.
Each Stallions’ win had significance. The jayvee volleyball match broke a first place tie in the TRC. The varsity volleyball match handed Whiteville its first loss and created a first place tie. The girls tennis match assured South Columbus of an automatic playoff berth and left Whiteville hoping to receive a wildcard spot.
South won in JV volleyball 25-18, 25-16. The varsity set scores were 25-17, 20-25, 26-24 and 25-18. South Girls Tennis won 7-2.
On the other hand, there was no joy in Columbus county among boys soccer players. Red Springs handed Whiteville its first conference defeat 3-1. East Bladen edged South Columbus 2-0, breaking the Stallions three-game winning streak. West Bladen overcame a 2-1 halftime deficit to top West Columbus 5-3. St. Pauls blanked East Columbus 7-0.
