The state volleyball semifinals take place Halloween night and five local teams are hoping for a treat. A win on Wednesday will send them to the finals in their respective classifications.
Momentum can be one of the more important factors in a football game. The Fayette County Tigers had a wealth of momentum in the second half, scoring 30 straight points, but it wasn't enough for them to hang on when the momentum switched back to Troup.
The volleyball dominance from area teams continues in the state playoffs.

Whitewater, Class of 2013
After a tough loss to begin the season the Wildcats have put together an impressive seven game winning streak and found themselves one game away from a sub-region title. To clinch the top spot in the sub-region they had to go into “The Swamp” of Creekside High School, where Whitewater head coach Amos McCreary had coached from 1993-2002, and come out with a win. It was a hard fought game that came down to the wire.
After a week where it appeared almost everything went wrong for the McIntosh Chiefs, everything went right. From big third down conversions, good spots and penalties that killed Panther drives, McIntosh appeared to be playing with house money and they capitalized. The Chiefs beat Starr's Mill 30-13, producing their first ever win against the Panthers and improving to 5-2 on the season.
The local volleyball teams started the state playoffs this week and advanced to the second round.
Fayette County Tigers (1-5) vs. LaGrange Grangers (4-2)
The Tigers got in the win column last week with a 41-7 win over Columbus.
Whitewater started the Class AAAAA state playoffs on the road last week. They faced Thomas County Central, region champions of 1-AAAAA, and won both games to advance to a second round match-up with Jones County yesterday.
You probably knew that the high school volleyball teams in the area were good, but did you know that they were this good? The area tournaments took place last week and three local teams were crowned area champions.
