The junior varsity lost to two sets, 17-25 and 16-25 to West Vigo. Kourtney Hubbard led the junior varsity with nine points.
"We played well at times, but must concentrate on passing the ball and cutting down the number of freeballs given up to our opponents," CHS head coach Kathy Moore said. "Once we get more consistency in passing then everything else should improve. It is great to be back coaching again and it was wonderful to see the large crowd in our gym tonight."
