CHESAPEAKE — The Coal Grove Lady Hornets are hoping the second verse is the same as the first.

The Lady Hornets beat the Chesapeake Lady Panthers 25-18, 25-9, 25-19 in an Ohio Valley Conference volleyball match on Thursday to keep them atop the league standings after the first round.

But the second round begins Tuesday as the Lady Hornets host the Rock Hill Redwomen.

“It’s going to be a great game. We know Rock Hill will be up for us. We’re hoping for a good crowd to help us out with a tough game,” said Lady Hornets’ coach Tricia Damron.

Cami Hillier had 13 points and Ashley Adkins had 11 points to pace the Lady Hornets’ win over Chesapeake.

Bailey Harrison had an all-around effort with 8 points and 7 kills while Cheyenne Bellomy added 8 kills.

Chesapeake got balanced contributions from a group of players as Kelsey Huff scored 9 points, Macy Allen had 9 kills, Carrie Brock had 8 assists and Melanie Noble had 10 digs.

The Lady Panthers play at Ironton on Monday at 5:30 p.m.
