Coming off a disappointing loss to Cedar Ridge last week, the Orange volleyball team went into the week searching for salvation. And they got it.
After sweeping Graham on Tuesday, the Panthers earned its first Big 8 Conference win of the season by sweeping Northern Vance at Jim King Gymnasium on Thursday night on scores of 25-23, 27-25 & 26-24.
Macy Hughes had a solid all-around game for the Panthers, finishing with eight kills, three aces, 2 digs and 2 blocks. Mileah Shriner had seven kills, 1 block and 1 ace. Bailey Lucas had two kills, 15 assists and five digs.
Orange improves to 3-5, 1-1 in the Big 8. On Tuesday, they travel to Southern Durham. Next Thursday, they host Chapel Hill.
