PEDRO — This one was quite a battle.

Chesapeake battled past the Rock Hill Redwomen in a five-set Ohio Valley Conference volleyball match Tuesday, 24-26, 25-8, 25-19, 15-25, and 15-10 in the tiebreaker.

“It was a war,” said Chesapeake coach Dana Edwards. “All the girls played hard for both teams. Rock Hill has really improved since the first time we played them.
