Leverett's Chapel beats Yantis to advance in playoffs


This winning and advancing in the playoffs is getting to be old hat for Leverett’s Chapel’s volleyball program.

The Lady Lions, looking to possibly get back to the UIL state tournament that they competed in a year ago, took one step in that direction over the weekend, sweeping Yantis to advance in the Class 1A playoffs.

Coach Rickey Hammontree’s Lady Lions advanced to the regional quarterfinals, and were to play Miller Grove on Tuesday in Hawkins, following the deadline for this print edition of the News Herald.
