Victory is served.

The Chesapeake Lady Panthers had just six bad serves the entire game as they took a 3-1 Ohio Valley Conference volleyball win over the Rock Hill Redwomen Thursday.

“Both teams were just outstanding,” said Lady Panthers coach Dana Edwards. “We served the ball really well all night and we were communicating and playing as a team. We put it together tonight. Our girls have really grown up over the season.”
