The Ridgeland Lady Panthers celebrated Senior Night on Monday and did so by rolling past visiting Dade County, 25-13 and 25-11.
The Lady Wolverines were up 8-7 in the early stages of the first set, looking to spoil the night’s festivities. But following a timeout, the Lady Panthers reeled off 12 of the next 13 points, including six straight service points by Tenley Moore, to take control.
Ridgeland would keep their foot on the gas pedal after that as they rode the momentum to a victory in the second set, clinching the match.
Rachel Atchley had 14 assists and three aces, while fellow senior Abbi Witherow had three aces and three digs from her libero spot.
Jayda Jenkins and Landree Dunn each finished with seven kills, while Sarah Williams ended her night with five aces.
Ridgeland (19-13, 2-1) will host Pickens and third-ranked Northwest Whitfield on Tuesday in a pair of area matches, starting at 5 p.m.
