Howard’s Lady Lions continued their dominance on the court with their fourth consecutive victory, defeating the host Mt. Hebron Vikings in two sets (25-17, 25-15). Howard has yet to lose a single set this season, sweeping every opponent en route to a perfect 4-0 record.
Mt. Hebron, hosting its first home match of the season, showed significant improvement from their previous contest, a season-opening two-set loss to a then undefeated Centennial squad. The Lady Vikings took the early lead over Howard in both sets with solid serving, strong defense, and hustle. Ultimately, Howard’s front line was just too strong, and the Lions’ efficient setting and powerful kills finished off the Vikings down the stretch.
Next up, Howard looks to stay unbeaten against host Centennial (3-1), while Mt. Hebron welcomes visiting Oakland Mills (0-3) with both teams seeking their first victory of the season. Both matches are set for March 17 at 5:15pm.
