Just when the Chesapeake Lady Panthers were about to celebrate the Ohio Valley Conference volleyball championship, the Rock Hill Redwomen spoiled the party.

Rock Hill upset the Lady Panthers in three hotly-contest sets, 12-15, 15-8, 15-9. Chesapeake finished the OVC with a 6-2 record.

South Point was 5-2 with one game remaining. A win would leave the race in a two-way tie while a loss would give Chesapeake the title outright.

"It was a real team effort," Rock Hill coach Heather Hardy said. "Chesapeake played a great match. There were some awesome volleys and great spikes. I would have been happy if we had lost."

Jessica Rice scored 9 points in the first match to help Chesapeake win. Jennifer Howard served for 10 points in the second match to win 15-8 and then Kelly Greco had 6 points in the decisive game.

Ashley Mayenchein scored 6 points for Chesapeake in the final match.

Rock Hill plays River Valley at 2 p.m. Saturday in the sectional tournament at South Webster High School.
